Scan Maps, Plans and Drawings for the Construction Industry

Plan Scanning
Cleardata provides large plan scanning services for the construction industry. This involves scanning a variety of large documents that are used within construction, such as architectural drawings, survey maps and specifications. The company’s drawing scanners can capture documents up to A0 in width and up to 2 metres in length, in both colour and mono, allowing contractors, architects and engineers in being able to digitise important records.

The amount of paperwork used within each construction project is vast, with new industry guidelines and health and safety regulations contributing to this. As all documents form part of the legal construction contract, it’s vital that they’re extremely accurate before being reviewed legally and are easily located when required.

Cleardata can scan the following documents that are regularly processing within construction:

  • Architectural Drawings
  • Contract Agreements
  • Survey Maps/li>
  • Planning Applications
  • Quotations
  • Field Reports
  • Large Scale Plans
  • Specifications
  • Procurement Records
  • CAD Drawings
  • Operating Manuals
  • Utility Diagrams
  • Invoices
  • Tender Documents
  • Health and Safety Files
  • And many more!

Scanning large technical documents can be highly beneficial for professionals within the construction industry. Not only would scanning large documents save a significant amount of office space but digitising them would allow complete and easy access to that information. Plan scanning also ensures the protection and security of your documents by having a digital copy that is stored on a secure device.

Cleardata’s scanning bureau is the UK’s largest single site user of the highly specialised Kodak Alaris scanners. The Kodak i5850S scanners successfully output 4 million images a month and ensure all images are of the highest quality, showing every map, plan and technical drawing in high-resolution. Each scanned image is also checked twice by two separate operators, providing a 200% quality checking service. Scanned documents can be sent via CD, USB or secure file transfer protocol and can be exported to any electronic format such as PDF, Excel, Word, Jpeg, Tiff etc.
