By using 3D scanning LiDAR technology and modeling toolkits, TWM can help design professionals save time, increase revenue, minimize risk, and correct conflicts prior to construction.


3D scanning is ideal for a wide variety of projects, especially on those where traditional surveying methods would be impractical. This specialized surveying tool can provide a high-definition laser scan of a building interior/exterior, HVAC system, bridge, or highway in a fraction of the time of conventional methods. In just a matter of hours, millions of x, y, and z data points are collected and then used to model and dimension critical components.

TWM’s technicians then use these data points to develop a 3D computer model, which can be manipulated with the software, viewed from any angle, and exported to traditional CAD software for analysis and rendering or to make precise measurements and calculations.


Results can be delivered in many formats, including Point Clouds (color-based intensity or true color), 3D models, 2D or 3D AutoCAD and MicroStation drawings, BIM applications, Revit applications, or Trueview Plugin for Internet Explorer.



The measurement data is used to support real-time decision making, which can help keep a project on time and within budget. 3D scanning can be used in a variety of applications, such as interiors and exteriors – above and below ground, irregular service areas, railroads, volume calculations, and transportation/traffic.



Our team has extensive experience applying high-definition 3D scanning technology to projects. On some of our recent projects, we have surveyed mechanical equipment within utility buildings, intricate piping, anchor bolts and columns, and the interior of a limestone mine/cave being converted to a climate-controlled storage facility.

Accelerate the Surveying Process with 3D Laser Scanning/Terrestrial LiDAR

Reliable. Robust. Rapid. The measurement data from reality capture tools is used to support real-time decision-making, which can help keep a project on time and within budget. Precise measurements and calculations for design, planning, or analysis can be available at your fingertips and ready for export to numerous platforms. TWM has the resources to collect highly detailed site conditions and capture data on almost any project. In addition to high-definition 3D laser scanning/terrestrial LiDAR for precision data, our firm uses other state-of-the-art equipment such as mobile LiDAR to collect data at highway speeds and UAVs for aerial LiDAR photogrammetry/imaging.

  • High-definition, high quality digital photos and videos

  • Collection of millions of data points in minutes results in cost savings

  • Precise measurements and calculations for design, planning, or analysis

  • Scans can be of any size and scope

  • Relative accuracy to within 1/8 – 1/16th of an inch

  • Fewer return trips to job site

  • Reduction in rework and/or retrofitting

  • Increased safety due to limited exposure of potential hazards

  • Ideal for tight or confined interior spaces

  • Versatile for varied jobs


  • Renovation and redevelopment as-builts

  • Site modeling and layout

  • Surface modeling

  • Roadway mapping and redesign

  • Preconstruction coordination

  • Construction validation

  • Calculate material orders


TWM separates itself from the competition by using state-of-the-art technology for data collection. Besides traditional surveying methods, we own, operate, and test reality capture tools daily, including mobile/terrestrial LiDAR units, UAVs, and the accompanying software.

We have the resources to provide multiple, fully-equipped survey crews matched to a project’s needs. Our expertise includes boundary, ALTA, right-of-way, construction, and engineering surveys.

An innovative mapping solution, this reality capture technology completes data collection five times faster by collecting survey-quality point data measurements, simply by walking or driving at highway speeds.

UAVs are equipped with sensors and cameras for scanning data. Our drone team, who are licensed remote pilots, gather this visual data of job sites to create accurate 3D models for planning and design.

For water dependent projects, TWM offers a highly skilled team of professionals who measure and map water bodies and shorelines to capture full coverage and data.

Combining visual features with supporting databases, this digital mapping method is used to maintain utilities, monitor transportation conditions, and other activities.

TWM employs various detecting equipment to survey and map underground utilities and log utility depth and offset. Data is easily exportable to GIS, CAD, and other applications.

Also known as construction staking, TWM’s services use robotic total stations, 3D laser scanners, and digital levels to provide accurate construction plan data.


That’s our company mission and our promise to you. Our success is built upon a solid reputation for getting the job done right. One thing we are particularly proud of is approximately 95% of TWM’s work comes from repeat business. We believe our resolution of challenges sets us apart, and based on our level of repeat business, we think our clients will agree.
