Laser scanning in architecture

Urbica can support surveyors, architects or departmental managers in the production of 2D or 3D plans.
From the production of a simple façade plan to section diagrams of buildings on a Hausmannian scale, ranging through 3D plans of roof structures or structural frameworks, large-scale reception rooms or entrance lobbies accommodating the confluence of majestic stairways ... this is the brief of our team.
