Our large format scanning services offer an efficient digitisation solution designed to enhance usability and access. By reducing large drawing cabinets and archiving originals offsite, we free up valuable office space. Scans are indexed with metadata for improved searchability by project, date, and other criteria.
Digital copies on the network, cloud repositories, or mobile devices make drawings highly accessible from any location. Portability is also improved for field teams by replacing oversized prints with easy tablet/laptop access. Cloud storage smoothly handles future revisions and integrates CAD, BIM, and Microsoft files for unified access.
Network archive copies can sync automatically with the cloud for backup and universal accessibility.
With expertise in digitising large technical drawings, architectural plans, maps, diagrams and more, we make unwieldy physical materials more usable in modern digital formats. Contact us to discuss optimising your large format scanning workflow.

How Large Format Scanning Works
Large format scanning begins by transporting oversized materials like architectural drawings, maps, and plans to our specialised scanning facility. Care is taken in handling these often fragile or delicate originals. Prior to scanning, documents are prepared and unfolded as needed.
The materials are then scanned on high-end wide-format capture equipment capable of preserving all details in high-resolution digital images. The scans are converted into common file formats such as PDF, TIFF, and JPEG for usability. Native CAD files can also be integrated as needed. Metadata tags are added to the scans through an indexing process to make them searchable. Quality control checks are performed to ensure accuracy.
The digitised materials are provided via secure cloud storage or on physical media. The scans are then accessible across devices and locations, improving collaboration and mobility. Overall, large-format scanning converts unwieldy physical documents into manageable and easily accessible digital files.
