In the fast-paced world of home renovation, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. At RenoVista Construction, we’re not just keeping up with the times; we’re setting the pace. One of the most exciting advancements we’ve embraced is LiDAR technology. In this blog post, we’ll delve into how LiDAR is transforming the way we approach home renovation projects, making them more efficient, accurate, and cost-effective.
What is LiDAR?
LiDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging. It’s a technology that uses light to measure distances between objects. At RenoVista Construction, we use an iPad Pro equipped with LiDAR technology to scan spaces in real-time. The iPad sends light to an object in the space, and then measures the time it takes for the light to return, creating a detailed, three-dimensional map of the area.
How Does It Work?
When we arrive at a job site, we start the LiDAR scan from a corner of the room. The iPad sends out light beams to various points in the room, capturing the dimensions and layout. This data is then uploaded to a server, where it’s converted into a colorized, three-dimensional scan.
Why Use LiDAR?
The traditional method of starting a renovation project involves hand-drawn plans or hiring an architect to create detailed drafts. This process is not only time-consuming but also expensive. LiDAR technology eliminates the need for these steps. It allows us to create accurate construction documents at a fraction of the cost, speeding up the entire renovation process.
We recently completed a master bedroom remodel where LiDAR played a crucial role. After scanning the room, the data was converted into a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) file. This CAD file serves as the basis for creating both existing and proposed plans, which are essential for obtaining the necessary permits from the town.
