Architecture Surveys – Formby Surveys

Westminster London

“At Formby Surveys, we have been using the iSTAR 360 degree imaging for a couple of years to help with maximising our time when surveying a site. Whether we need to survey every room in a hotel, or an architecturally significant site such as One Great George Street; the iSTAR helps reduce our field times and improves the quality of product to our client”

[Andy Roberts, Managing Director, Formby Surveys]

3D Documentation – Ruxton Surveys

Wixford – Warwickshire

“The whole process with iSTAR takes less than a minute per scan to capture a perfect image,” said Ruxton. “So we estimate that iSTAR is saving us more than 30% in our total scanning time.”

[Ben Ruxton, Surveyor]

“The colour output is incredible and can actually provide our clients with such confidence in the accuracy of their images that they may not even require a confirmation visit to the site.”

[David Buffini, Director Precision Surveys]

“iSTAR was very impressive. It’s size, ease of use, portability and image quality make it a worthy companion for our FARO Focus Laser Scanners”

3D Documentation – TerraDat

Topcon GLS-2000 scan colourisation

“We use the iSTAR every other day – we’ve always got scanning jobs on – and it always goes out on them… it’s such a useful and quick tool for getting a representation of what’s there”

[Nick Rusill, Co-founder and Managing Director at TerraDat]

Using iSTAR – Extract from In Attendance

“Its portability is great. We can get it set up in a couple of minutes and get real time info, rather than wait 15 or 20 minutes while a laser scanner does its work. iSTAR’s almost instant. I can take an image as soon as I get there, then another every, say, five minutes, and get a picture of the incident progresses.”

[Damian Watts, Station Manager]
