SAM has extensive experience in terrestrial HDS scanning for clients in multiple markets. We have recently expanded our Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities through the acquisition of Haag 3D Solutions, now part of SAM. Through our combined industry experience, SAM now has the capacity to provide BIM services to a broader range of industries and locations. Our team is one of the leaders in the laser scanning and 3D imaging profession, with extensive survey and laser scanning experience on projects of all sizes and complexities. To date we have scanned over 75 million square feet of interior and exterior surfaces. The SAM team works to continually improve and expand our BIM technology, capabilities, and 3D imaging applications.
At SAM, our experienced team of professionals uses the latest subsurface utility engineering technologies, including radio frequency, acoustic, sonic magnetic sensing, GPR and nondestructive vacuum excavation equipment. Our underground utility locating services designate, locate and accurately map underground utilities, as well as assist clients in utility coordination.
Our utility coordination section is headed by seasoned professionals and backed by a knowledgeable team of right-of-way and land agents. With comprehensive experience in utility coordination at all levels on both public and private projects, our team can determine the best method to resolve utility relocation conflicts and recover the cost of providing a resolution.
