CLIENTS AND PARTNERS

WE ARE

In just seven years, Advanced 3D Laser Solutions Group have achieved rapid growth with impressive global client partnerships, including Vopak, Valero, Stolt, Navigator, World Fuels, Croda Chemicals and Aesica.

We are driven by creativity, talent, data, technology and strategic expertise.

 Committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion.

ABOUT US

Since the 1970s, Director Graham Boxer has provided his clients with engineering, design, draughting and surveying services.

In 2014, he partnered with Commercial Director Colin Pittman, and Technical Director Lewis Boxer, to launch A3D Laser Solutions Group.

Graham’s background, alongside Colin’s media/marketing experience and Lewis’ technical expertise was a perfect match. Our clients now span the oil, gas, pharmaceutical, detergent, process, construction and the renewable energy sector focusing on wind farms, which will play a major part in our future.

 We specialise in 3D laser scanning and modelling, smart piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and digital asset management.       A3D recognise point cloud technologies as the most effective method of capturing 3D measured site data and devising a unique point cloud to P&ID solution, with faster draughting, consistent drawing standards and a proven solution to keeping P&IDs as-built.

Committed to continuous improvement, we developed our 4D Lizard EAM Smart Hub software plug-in, providing intelligent maintenance, workflow automation and increased standardisation displayed in an easy-to-visualise 3D model.

Helping our Clients migrate to carbon neutrality,  providing compliance drawings/models of current facilities, via +/-1mm accurate surveying to produce digital twins, to transition energy infrastructure towards chemicals, biofuels, LNG and eventually hydrogen.

3D EAM HUB

DESIGNED BY ENGINEERS FOR ENGINEERS

4D Lizard will improve efficiency, reduce cost and revolutionise maintenance for the tank storage industry. By actively monitoring equipment and planning for future inspections or repairs using the 3D model as an interface, and then by assigning values to assets, this tool enables greater cost forecasting and analysis. 4D Lizard has the ability to slingshot petrochemical and storage tank maintenance management into the modern-day

THE BENEFITS

FASTER SURVEYS

3D Laser scanning is the fastest measured surveying method, with an ability to record up to 960k points per second and up to 1mm accuracy, enabling A3D to record your site assets in a fraction of the time it takes via traditional methods.

COST EFFECTIVE

Due to its speed of recording, your site asset data is delivered incredibly fast, accurately and in great detail, offering considerable savings. Our range of bolt on applications include tank analysis, 3D models, facilities management and plant videos.

+/-1MM ACCURACY

Laser scanning captures data at the same level of accuracy as traditional surveying methods, but human error is eliminated as the scanner automatically captures all site data, removing the need for further costly site visits to retrieve data missed the first time.

EXAMPLE DATA

OUR SERVICES

LASER SCANNING

A3D are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognized as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data using 3D laser scanning instruments replacing time-consuming and inaccurate traditional methods.

3D MODELLING

 We are industry leaders in the production of ‘brownfield’ technical process models due to the skill of our 3D laser surveyors coupled with our 30 year process industry experience.

SMART P&IDS

Piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) are a fundamental to an organisation's efficient process operation. We have developed a unique point cloud to P&ID solution, for efficient as-built site management/maintenance.

TANK ANALYSIS

For bulk storage operators, capturing accurate tank data is an integral part of ensuring efficient day-to-day running of your facility, be it for production, engineering, maintenance or health & safety.

VIDEO FLYTHROUGHS

We produce video files directly from captured laser scans for use in a variety of ways: facility maintenance, site H&S, marketing and training.

SITE WEBSHARE

Webshare is freely available software offering powerful facilities for use with scan files. Our intuitive map presents scans as a ‘birds-eye’ view of your plant, with Webshare enabling you to walk your site from your PC, record measurements, annotating as required.
