Scanning Plans

Our large-format scanners are among the fastest and most sophisticated in the market. They have both top and bottom illumination, which gives excellent image quality from the sheet. The software provides a single one touch process. The software enables the scanned images to be cleaned up after the initial scanning process. This involves running them through the de-speckling, cropping, straightening and realignment process to obtain the best results. Each scanned drawing is then individually inspected prior to final release.

Plan Indexing

After the plan scanning process, for a fast and efficient search, we can index the plans by the following information from the “Title Block” or as required:

  • Drawing Reference Number
  • Building Application Number
  • Development Application Number
  • Description
  • Client Name
  • Date
  • Storage Media

Around 2,000-3,000 A0 size plans can be archived onto a standard CD/USB or over 30,000 A0 plans can be stored on a standard DVD/USB. The CD/DVD/USB can be accessed from any PC or portable device, and the images can be imported into any Electronic Document Management System (EDMS).
