Most projects struggle with the accuracy of the existing as-built documentation. Any projects with existing structures, equipment, piping and etc. that have critical connection or penetration locations require accurate documentation. Almost all existing structures requiring engineering changes were designed before 3D CAD modeling. How accurate the information or if any exists is always a concern.
To ensure we have accurate data, Burns & McDonnell acquired a 3D Laser Scanner. With LiDAR “3D Laser Scanning”, we can capture data quickly and safely with immense detail and accuracy.
This presentation will discuss the data collection process and highlight how we specifically benefited using the 3D laser data on our projects. Each project we discover new and better ways to harness the information and provide a better engineering product for our customer.
