GoldenWolf is leveraging LiDAR technology to create a digital twin of facilities for use in a variety of applications. A digital twin is a valuable tool that offers a wide range of capabilities to optimize facility operations. It can be used to help with planning capital projects and improvements, run preventive maintenance routines, digitally tag and track equipment, warranties, and O&M data, and provide design and construction firms with accurate facility models and backgrounds for future renovations.

Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a remote sensing method. LiDAR technology uses the light from a laser to collect measurements to create a real-time 3D map or ‘point cloud’. The purpose of the point cloud is to create a 3D model. These models can be used for remote facility condition assessments, equipment life-cycle modeling, and energy modeling and can be utilized as a facility management tool in complex decision-making scenarios. These models are especially useful in visually documenting and verifying facility features such as the magnitude of equipment deterioration, fire and life safety concerns, space utilization and management, and project progress. The scan data can also be used to precisely measure architectural features, provide input into Facility Condition Assessments, and provide a remote platform for project planning criteria.

GoldenWolf has the subject matter experts (SMEs), technology, and bandwidth to help our clients reach their mission goals. Our engineers have been rigorously trained and understand the value of creating digital twins of facilities. Therefore, we have partnered with an industry leader in LiDAR-based technology to accurately transform your facility into a digital twin.

This value can be transferred to our clients in the remarkably more efficient creation of computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, reduction of personnel time on-site, and visual information availability from any geographic location. From creating as-builts in a fraction of the time to providing full virtual walkthroughs, GoldenWolf prides itself on adopting cutting-edge technology to offer our clients the best-in-class service.

The GoldenWolf team works closely with your organization to determine the best application for 3D laser-scanning technology. Whether the technology is used to monitor and augment construction progress, as a facility management tool, or as a remote visualization facilitator, GoldenWolf carries the expertise to bring the full capabilities of LiDAR technology to your organization professionally and efficiently.
