In 1997, AEMS pioneered Laser Survey “Single Point” (“AEMS” T&H authored and copyrighted software) specifically for the refining and chemical industry in the Texas Gulf Coast area

Advanced Electronic Measuring System (AEMS), since 1997

Small Projects: “Single Point” (Ideal for small or retrofit projects), measures discrete points of equipment, nozzles, heat or cold stressed movements, and other stationary objects

  • Accuracy less than 1/8” inch
  • Distance up to 100’ feet
  • Data converted to 3D model or 2D deliverables

High Definition Scanning (HDS), since 2005

Large Projects: “HDS” (Ideal for large projects) laser scanning technology captures millions of data points of equipment, associated piping and fixtures.

  • Accuracy less than 1/8” inch
  • Distance up to 150’ feet
  • Data converted to “Point Cloud”
  • Clash Detection, 3D Modeling, Isometrics with BOM



Over 20 years of experience and 1,500 plus projects, assures clients will receive a desired working deliverable as well as training on the use of models, coordinates and bench marks associated with plant coordinate systems.

  • Detailed 3D as-built documentation
  • Precise field installation of equipment

Cost Benefit (Thousands $$$$ Savings in project time and rework cost)

Laser Scanning Technology is “state of the art” method of capturing accurate, current as-built measurements. The desk top deliverable “visuals” eliminates repeat field visits, detects potential clashes and constructability concerns before design. Laser Scanning saves engineering and design man-hours totaling Thousands of Dollars in savings.
