Operate & Maintain Buildings

Increase efficiency, enable smart collaboration and optimise the end-of-life of a building.





Be the data manager enabling smart collaboration, sharing progress and recording assets.

Document entire buildings with reality capture for repairs and renovations. Create digital twins to help maintain the assets’ condition, and execute projects with sustainable practices that support the circular economy.

Create digital twins to increase the life span of buildings

Surveyors can create a digital twin of a building to identify conditions and help understand what needs maintenance over time, increasing the lifespan of buildings. With their knowledge of geospatial workflows, surveyors have the skills to document entire buildings before embarking on repairs, renovations or fitouts.

Geared with Leica Geosystems’ reality capture solutions, surveyors capture buildings from any angle with outstanding speed and the highest quality while providing high-value deliverables that can be visualised, analysed, and shared in real time with stakeholders. We help you provide Smart Digital Realities for multiple applications that support a circular economy such as better insulation or retrofitting to make buildings more energy efficient. Surveyors can help to optimise buildings to reduce emissions and increase the building’s sustainability while opening new lines of business.

Increase value through visualisation and collaboration

When stakeholders have access to the right data at the right time onsite or remotely, designs can be created or updated with confidence. Surveyors can bring together data creating a unified Smart Digital Reality of the project that is visualised and accessed, helping to manage and communicate change, track progress and sign-off tasks.

Whether you create complete digital twins or capture and stake out point by point, Leica Geosystems software enables data updates, transfer and access so your whole team stays aligned and works on the same current models. Our software is fully compatible with a seamless exchange in CAD and BIM systems.

End of life of a building

When a building reaches the end of life and is properly documented with a digital twin, you can classify construction materials to be reused, contributing to the sustainability of building demolition projects through their daily workflows.

Leica Geosystems reality capture solutions can be used to identify concrete or steel and wood structures that can be reused and recycled, reducing waste and supporting the circular economy. With our solutions, surveyors can document the availability of recyclable materials and help optimise materials reuse.

View buildings remotely to save time and reduce the cost of operation


Digital twin to quickly understand the building environment

The Leica BLK360 is a compact imaging laser scanner that uses a 360° laser distance meter and high-definition panoramic imaging to create a 3D point cloud of the space around it. Simple to use with the single push of one button, it is the smallest and lightest imaging laser scanner of its kind.

Capture reality with high efficiency

The Leica RTC360 3D laser scanner empowers users to efficiently document and capture environments in 3D, streamlining their field-to-finished workflow through fast, simple-to-use, accurate, and portable hardware and software.

Increase transparency and visualise the building’s situation

Leica TruView cloud is the industry leader for easily and intuitively sharing point cloud data, design models, mark-ups, and more. Leica TruView products allow stakeholders to access, view, analyse and collaborate using digital reality data via a browser-based viewer or desktop application. Conduct simple analysis, view models and project assets and mark up data to communicate and collaborate with other project stakeholders.

 

Localise, visualise and tag assets that easily integrate to facility management solutions (CAFM or IWMS)


Quickly capture the reality on the move, anywhere you go

The Leica BLK2GO handheld imaging laser scanner recreates spaces in 3D as you move. It captures images and dimensionally accurate point clouds in real time and uses SLAM technology to record your trajectory through space.

Capture full scan with an advanced precision imaging laser scanner

The Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner is the world's smallest and easiest-to-use imaging laser scanner. At the push of a button, users can capture a full scan with spherical images in only twenty seconds.

Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 allows you to control your laser scanner, QA your capture data, and add extra value and information in the field. Tag onsite measurements, videos, images, text, or voice files on a tablet or smartphone. Share the acquired data directly via Leica TruView Cloud to visualise point clouds in a single view and provide collaboration between multiple sites. Additional value is achieved by directly connecting TruView Cloud with leading Computer-Aided Facility Management (CAFM) and Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) platforms.

Highest productivity with Leica RTC360

Leica RTC360 is a 3D reality capture solution combining a high-performance laser scanner and mobile device app to capture and pre-register scans in real time for larger buildings.

Contribute to making buildings more sustainable


Digital twin for renovation and demolition

To reduce energy costs and emissions and increase building sustainability, existing buildings can be better insulated and retrofitted to reduce their emissions. Likewise, when a building reaches the end of life and is set to be demolished it should be adequately documented as a digital twin. Provide a highly accurate and complete digital twin to identify assets, model retrofits and classify construction materials that can be reused or recyclable with the Leica RTC360, Leica BLK360, or Leica BLK2GO and Leica Cyclone family's software.
