Think I'll just guestimate based on CAD drawings on 5m spacing, medium setting scan and no of visits or something to this effect...

Should get me in the ball park
Rather than drilling down to estimateing based on number of scans I'd just take a look at previous projects and estimate a storage volume based on unit area. Calculate how much total storage you think you'll need and then double it.
