Mechanical contractor acquires 3D imaging firm
A local mechanical contractor and fabricator has acquired a construction technology firm.
Andy J. Egan Co. said last week that it has acquired 3D Imaging Services, which provides digital documentation for projects using 3D imaging technologies.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Employees of 3D Imaging Services’ Flint office will relocate to the Grand Rapids headquarters of Egan.
The relationship started five years ago when Egan began using 3D Imaging Services for projects.
“Their approach to construction technology is very similar to Egan’s,” said Chris Weaver, director of technology, Andy J. Egan Co. “When we first implemented BIM (building information modeling) in 2001, it changed the way Egan operated. In order to fully integrate new construction technology into the company, Egan invested significant time into integrating that technology with our company culture.
“3D Imaging Services shares this perspective, and once we began working together, they became a natural extension of our business.”
3D Imaging Services
3D Imaging Services was founded in 2006 and uses its technology to help reduce the cost of renovations, new construction, engineering and facilities management with its 3D laser-scanning abilities.
