Laser Scanning & Survey

Right first time design, and first time fit

Laser Scanning

Ariosh is a world leading service provider in 3D Laser Scanning. Our Truebuilt™ design engineers have more than a quarter-century of oil & gas industry design experience. Our multi-disciplined engineering teams have vast experience analyzing Laser Scan data to eliminate all preventable design errors, including clashes and the need for on-site welding.

Laser Scanning Hub, Digitized Facility

Engineering Hub

At the core of Ariosh laser scanning services is a unique and innovative laser scanning hub. The Ariosh hub is a digital information parser of highly accurate, as-is data captured from a physical asset. It is a unique, CAD-integrated solution used to create accurate, digitized spaces and eliminate dimensional uncertainty. This innovative digital facility hub underpins our unique process that ensures the delivery of world-class quality projects at optimized schedule, reduced cost, and managed risk.

The Digitized Facility Hub delivers compelling business benefits to the oil and gas industry. It improves the quality and accessibility of existing plant information, allowing both engineering contractors and owner/operators to make more accurate and timely decisions.


Ariosh laser scanning hub provides an accurate 3D facility database that can be viewed over the web or on local PCs. Facility owner/operators with limited or no experience in laser scanning, point cloud data, CAD, or 3D CAD can easily view, annotate, and take measurements of the digitized facility.

2D As-built Drawings

In addition to asset information management, accurate as-is drawings are essential for the FEED and Detailed Engineering Design (DED) activities. Ariosh expertly processes the digitized facility into standard 2D drawings, detailing complete and accurate existing conditions of the facility. One of our most established service offerings, we have produced over 300,000 as-built drawings in the past 5 years.

3D Plant CAD Models

As-built information of a working facility is often inaccurate and incomplete, and becomes even more obsolete as time passes. Ariosh laser scanning hub mitigates these issues by using laser scan data to create validated, as-is 3D plant models for reverse engineering. Ariosh TrueBuilt Engineers accurately and completely transform facility laser data into digitized, intelligent, as-is 3D facility models (PDMS, AutoPlant & PDS).

Ariosh uses the digitized facility model to perform an independent review of construction plans and specifications to minimize potential problems during project construction.

The digital facility model, with its accuracy and comprehensive detail, can be used in the elimination of design errors. Ariosh executes the following activities on final IFC packages to ensure spool piece and structural members bolt up at first install.

  • Clash Check & Resolution
  • Tie Point Extraction
  • Design Validation, Modification & QA/QC
  • Isometrics and Shop Drawing Generation

Ariosh installation work package deliverables are stand-alone job cards, delineated by discipline. Every drawing referenced in relation to an installation activity is appended to each job card, along with time estimates and required resource indexes, and a complete list of materials and equipment critical to executing each task.

The installation job cards usually have TrueView and/or Navisworks snapshot pictures for better clarity of the installation.

Quality engineering design ensures that new designs do not clash with existing facilities. As part of our dimension control service, our laser scanning hub is used to verify the consistency of fabricated items by carrying out spool, lines and structural checks.

Construction planning benefits the production team by facilitating the precise location of cut lines, and enabling the visualization of spool sequencing and lift planning, scaffold planning, and assembly simulations. The digitized facility model also enables the graphic visualization of new designs inside the existing facility so that all stakeholders can clearly understand how the pending additions will interact with the existing plant configuration.
