We Are HELIX
We create digital twins of existing buildings in the UK and Europe with speed and precision.
HELIX radically reduces the time and cost to scan, photo-document, and generate easy-to-use 3D models of large buildings. Accurate 3D plans are created in days using laser scanning (LIDAR), photogrammetry, computer vision, AI, and massive cloud computing power.
Executives, Project Teams, Facilities Managers and more can quickly view and share building models and panoramic photos on standard mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.
What We Provide
We offer fast, accurate, easy-to-use digital building models that improve the productivity of existing real estate assets.
Rapid reality capture
Our London-based team can scan and photograph up to 10,000 square metres floor in a day. A high-resolution photo “walk through” that allows you to “visit” the building digitally is delivered the same day.
Photographic “walk-throughs” are used to market space, discuss design and layout options or communicate with service providers without having to travel to the building.
Conversion to floorplans
Once a building is photographed and scanned, the data are archived to preserve a record of the building condition.
Data captured by scanning and photography are merged and converted into a three dimensional digital twin.
Conversion to CAD/BIM
Most large projects in the UK require 3D BIM models in Revit (.rvt) format. Other BIM model formats are provided as requested.
Few stakeholders are trained to use complex BIM software. We provide 2D plans in PDF and AutoCAD that allow more people to interact with the digital building model.
HELIX provides comprehensive, accurate, raw scan data, high resolution panoramic photographs and models of all visible surfaces delivered to BIM LOD300.
Real Estate Investors, Owners, Operators, Architects, Engineers, Tenants and Government authorities use this data to verify the true state of existing buildings.
All captured data are archived and can be accessed at any time for discussion, collaboration or legal support.
The Power of HELIX
Simple, platform-neutral 3D model sharing.
The power of HELIX comes from the simple, no-training interface to building information. Today, reviewing BIM models requires expensive software and hardware and significant training.
By unlocking access to digitised building information, HELIX makes it possible to “send the building” digitally to anyone—anywhere—who is given access privileges.
Owners and users of large real estate portfolios are finding dramatic ROI through lowered vacancy rates, lower construction costs, faster time to market and more.
