Providing site surveys and laser scanning services for clients across the UK and Europe

Site Surveys

Our engineers are often required to visit sites to perform site surveys and site measurements. This has been implemented extensively across the UK and into Europe. We have vast experience in many industries including:

  • Offshore Oil & Gas Platforms
  • Refineries and Petrochemical Plants
  • Metal Processing Plants
  • Structural Steelwork
  • Pharmaceutical Plants
  • Power Stations

Our team of highly skilled engineers utilise our state of the art 3D laser scanning technology to accurately and efficiently survey complex areas of existing process plants and operational areas.

Laser Scanning

Laser scanning provides far more comprehensive and accurate data than previously possible and the work can also be delivered extremely efficiently compared to a manual operation.

Multiple scans are taken and joined together using specialist software. The resulting Point Cloud contains all data collected, represented by billions of dots. By selecting the appropriate elements our designers can produce highly accurate 3D images and models without the need to return to site, saving valuable time for both our clients and ourselves.

The surveying software can produce:

  • A scan covering up to a 120m radius
  • A 3D Point Cloud accurate to 3mm
  • A photo 3D overlay

The benefits include:

  • An accurate 3D model processed directly from the Point Cloud
  • Accurate “as built” layout drawings for areas where none are available
  • Easy incorporation of new plant and equipment designs onto existing operational sites
  • Significant reduction in scaffold and access requirements
  • Reduced onsite survey time

With years of experience, we know that every project has its own challenges and requirements. To talk to some of our experts, please get in touch with us today.

Full Laser Scan for Finlays

OLG Engineering produced a full laser scan for Finlays – a multidisciplinary project involving surveying, civil and structural and mechanical teams.

A change of use was required by the client with new plant and equipment being installed within an existing building.

OLG Engineering were tasked with checking the loads and carrying out any modifications to allow the structure to be repurposed.

A full laser scan was carried out to produce a 3D model of the building. This model shown became the base model for assessing loads and making changes to the building.
