Additional services create added value
Each digitization project can be supplemented with add-ons that create usability at delivery. For example, drawings can be annotated with usable text-based attributes, such as the identity of a space or a piece of equipment. These attributes can then be used for searching and information structuring.
Examples of other additional services include creating better project planning documents prior to building renovation projects, presentation material for a rental business, or identifying conditions based on which energy calculations can be made. We can classify spaces according to your standard and automatically calculate the area of the space according to Swedish or international standards. This type of information can then be transferred to other management systems. Equipment can also be identified, classified and then transferred. Such services create further added value for your business.
Regarding building drawings, space areas can be created according to both Swedish and international standards, and space identities can be created on the drawing that generate unique room names. These names can easily be replaced with actual room names at a later stage for an extremely cost-effective process. Other attributes include reference numbers and similar identities for equipment presented on the drawings, so that they can be used for search purposes.
We can also create searchable information about documents that are not revised in the graphic portion. Examples include wiring diagrams, where errors could be made during redrawing that could result in negative consequences. By only annotating them with searchable strings such as texts in drawing stamps and structural objects, they can quickly and easily be found in a search. This is an inexpensive but effective way to take care of documents with a poor information structure.
Control measurement of construction objects
We can measure objects for which there are no drawings or where information needs to be checked. Essentially the external dimensions of the building are measured around the sides and, if necessary, other measurable structural objects such as pillars, elevator shafts or stairways. The aim is to improve the quality of the drawings, not to strive for total accuracy. The charge for this work is usually based on a fee per object, usually a building, plus a charge for each required measurement.
Post-editing of redrawn CAD models
We can enter final edits, for example from input data or from supplementary documentation. Such work is usually initiated because of differences between the drawing and reality. Extensive editing is easier to accomplish based on the new CAD models.
Space determination on drawings
We can implement space determination on drawings, which are provided with a room number and description. If the drawings do not have any space identities, they are provided with a unique code and serial number that can later be replaced. We can also use a similar approach to define apartment numbers. These space definitions can then be exported for further processing.
Drawing coverage control
In connection with scanning architectural drawings for buildings, we can check drawings for coverage to ensure that the drawings we register represent the entire building regarding all floor plans, facades and sections. In cases where drawings are missing, empty documents are created with a mark indicating their absence. Empty drawings can be replaced with the appropriate documents later; the purpose is to demonstrate that the drawing is missing.
Adaptation to standards and requirements
We can adapt drawings to the requirements of the delivery specifications or equivalent document. The aim is for the digitized documentation to comply with established requirements, even if this was not the case from the beginning.
