This thesis provides a study of technologically advanced methods for the point data data capturing of existing buildings, point cloud data processing the use in the development of structural building information model (BIM). As surveying techniques for the remote sensing technologies are considered as a main source of information for the geometry of buildings, we explore a wide spectrum of technologies, e.g., airborne laser scanning to short range 3D scanners. Furthermore, the requirements and criteria for the use of point clouds, which are the main medium of geometric data for remote sensing in the observed BIM process are explained. In this context the point clouds software tools for BIM modeling are presented. As the point clouds only provide information about the surface of the structure, methods for the investigation of the invisible parts of the structure are presented, e.g., a ground penetrating radar and thermography are proposed. The last part of the thesis explains the process from field surveying to the development of a BIM model with an emphasis on the addition of the information that would allow for the use of BIM model for energy analysis.
