Accurate by Design: How Reality Capture Transforms Construction

The use of laser scanning in construction is soaring—and for good reason. On a typical construction project, rework accounts for 12 to 15 percent of the cost of construction. With laser scanning, the ability to catch conflicts before they happen can reduce rework to 1 to 3 percent or less. This reduction translates into hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings on change orders, not to mention the advantage of keeping the project on schedule. The new collaboration between Autodesk and Leica Geosystems is making the adoption of laser scanning even easier for construction teams. In a 60-minute webinar on September 1, Leica Geosystems’ Cathi Hayes and Autodesk’s Eric Richie went behind the scenes on the alliance between the two technology giants to share cutting-edge success strategies. You can now view the webinar on-demand.

Video: Laser Scanning for Construction

scanning for construction

In the planning stage, a laser scanner is a powerful tool for analyzing a construction site. High detail and unique visualization options help designers get a more complete picture of the site. During construction, scanning can be used to check progress or verify standard compliance. It can also be used to obtain valuable information in preparation for future phases of construction as well as to create virtual 3D models that can be used to manage MEP and structural design and construction. Laser scanning can also be used to capture highly accurate and complete construction as-builts. Watch this video to see how Karins and Associates based in Delaware uses laser scanning to add value to construction projects. Continue reading…
