OR3D GEO Bridge Inspection Services

At OR3D GEO, we specialise in providing comprehensive and reliable bridge inspection services to ensure the safety, integrity, and longevity of bridges and transportation infrastructure.

Laser scanning for bridge inspection involves utilising laser scanning technology to comprehensively assess the condition, structural integrity, and maintenance needs of bridge infrastructure.

Service Overview

Capture Detailed Geometry: 3D scanning accurately records the intricate geometry of bridge components, including decks, piers, abutments, and joints, providing a detailed representation of the structure.

Detect Structural Defects: Scans reveal surface irregularities, cracks, corrosion, and other defects that may compromise the integrity of the bridge, allowing for early detection and proactive maintenance.

Enhance Safety and Efficiency: By minimising the need for manual inspection and reducing exposure to hazardous environments, 3D scanning enhances safety for inspection personnel. Additionally, it improves inspection efficiency by streamlining data collection and analysis processes.

Data Collection: Laser scanners are strategically positioned at various locations around the bridge, either on the ground, on a vehicle, or mounted on a mobile platform such as a drone. These scanners emit laser beams in a sweeping motion, capturing millions of precise points on the bridge’s surface and its surroundings.

Detection of Defects and Anomalies: The detailed point cloud data enables engineers to identify structural defects, cracks, deformations, corrosion, and other anomalies that may compromise the integrity of the bridge. By analyzing the point cloud, inspectors can pinpoint areas requiring further investigation or maintenance.

Discover The Benefits of Bridge Inspection


Laser scanning can significantly reduce the time and resources required for bridge inspections compared to traditional methods.


Inspectors can conduct inspections from a safe distance, reducing the need for physical access to hazardous areas of the bridge.


Laser scanning captures data from all areas of the bridge, including hard-to-reach or inaccessible areas, providing a comprehensive view of the structure's condition.



The 3D models generated from laser scanning serve as valuable documentation of the bridge's condition over time, facilitating long-term maintenance planning and monitoring.
