Real Estate

In real estate, every square meter counts. Accurate floorplans generated with BLK2GO ensure that owners get what their property is worth, and buyers know exactly what they are paying for.

Use Cases

Facility Management

Natisoft, located in Bologna, Italy, provides digital as-built documentation of facilities, architectural plans of properties, and key directories of specific equipment, objects, or machines to property and facility management clients. Their deliverables are complex 2D floor plans and 3D models. And they recently adopted the BLK2GO and discovered many immediate benefits to their workflow.

Space Planning

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences planned to increase patient care capacity in their hospital, so they hired Cromwell Architects Engineers, Inc. to provide floorplans for retrofitting existing space. Cromwell used the BLK2GO and quickly scanned 100,000 square feet in three hours. Then they produced their deliverables for UAMS in a fraction of the time compared to tripod-based reality capture workflows.

BLK2GO Scans Historic Building in NYC

A large building in downtown NYC was planned to be renovated, but new as-built drawings and models were required to begin work. The BLK2GO captured the entire 5-story building in 90 minutes, covering 48,000 sq. ft. (4,500 sq. m) and 120 rooms, which created an accurate 3D point cloud of the building's interior.
