3D Modelling

3D modelling in the construction and engineering industry is the creation of 3 dimensional images of buildings, infrastructure, and construction elements.

3D models can be made from traditional 2D drawings, or created from scratch in a 3D modelling software package.

McGregor has a strong track record preparing accurate 3D models for large and complex projects including:

  • Concrete
  • Sructural steel
  • Façade
  • Services
  • Surrounds
  • Plant & equipment
  • Logistics & access
  • Temporary works & scaffolds
  • Cranes & hoists

Typically the sources of information  used to model new and existing buildings and structures include:

  • 2D drawings (hand drawn and CAD files)
  • Point cloud surveys of existing structures
  • Plant and equipment specifications
  • Surround models
  • Photographs
  • Sketches
  • Maps & GIS information
