Reality IMT’s Architectural As-Built division has been supporting commercial and residential Architects around the nation in delivering quality As-Built documentation, As-Built BIM, Floor Flatness and Settlement Analysis. We apply the latest technology tools to measure existing buildings and generate highly accurate 3D models in Revit, ArchiCAD and AutoCAD. Our clients are able to reduce time spent on the project by 40% and reduce cost by 25% when compared to conventional methods.

With a 95% client retention rate, you can rely on us to deliver precise as-builts on time, within budget. Let’s save you the hassle of building measurements, reduce your cost, and improve your quality. Reach out to us to learn more.

Our Process

1. Gather Project Information

This will be general information about the project including address, building size, occupancy status, etc.

2. Define Scope of Work (SOW) and Project Deliverables

What are we expected to deliver? The answer to this questions helps us draft the SOW. For example, are we delivering a Pointcloud file, Revit, ArchiCAD, or DWG files of the existing building? Are we documenting Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E), or only Architectural As-Built.

3. Do you have a deadline for when the as-built must be received by?

Are there any specific safety concerns about site access? Understanding your schedule constraints will help us assign and manage resources in order to meet your deadline. We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our employees, contractors and clients. Any safety concerns will be addressed during this stage.

4. Proposal

Information from steps 1-3 above are used to generate a proposal and coordinte schedule, site visit, and data collection.

5. Data Registration & QA/QC

During this step, we perform a quality check on the data gathered in the field and ensure that measurements are accurate. We are also able to quantify how accurate the data is at this stage. A data registration report could be provided to the client upon request.

6. Architectural BIM/CAD Modeling

The collected data is imported into the appropriate software and vector files are generated.

7. QA/QC of BIM/CAD and Delivery

Generated CAD model is overlaid on top of the pointcloud data and any shifts/anomalies are identified, quantified and repaired. Uncertain measurements are called out on the drawings to help you make the final judgement.
