Virtual Building Studio – a provider of Autodesk Revit Architecture, Structure and MEP modeling and model management services to the national and international AEC market; announces they have surpassed the creation of 10 million SF of Point Cloud to BIM projects since its inception.

“There are many outsourcing firms that can create Revit Models from point cloud. Virtual building Studio key difference is the understanding of LOD and accuracy” explains Ankitkumar Kansara, founder and CEO of Virtual Building Studio. “With our staff of experienced AEC professionals, we manage accuracy in the models from start to end of the project”

For Point cloud to BIM, VBS client base is roughly split between surveyors and architects from UK , Europe and US.

Here is the small case study of Echo building, Liverpool, UK
Echo Building, Liverpool
From point cloud data, we created a LOD300 BIM survey of the tower and the lower three floors. With the building having had several uses over the years, we uncovered a number of surprises, including hidden structures in the ceiling and mezzanine levels. These discoveries added to the time pressures on an already tight refurbishment program, and we had to work closely with the design team, ensuring they had all the information to make swift decisions and keep the project on track.
We provided the client with regular weekly reports and progressive deliveries. As there were several issues, uncovering hidden rooms and structures, it was important that the client was kept fully up to date and alerted to any possible setbacks.

•Discovering new mezzanines and rooms during the survey, causing further time pressures on the program.
•Measuring and identifying hidden structure in ceiling voids with finishes still in situ.
•Providing the client with regular WIP models and reports each week, ensuring they were kept up to date with progress, and fully aware of any issues that could cause delay to the project.

Client benefit:
•Accurate and fast BIM modeling services
•Weekly reports and updates
•BIM management for the entire project.
