Armed with a phase-shift laser scanner, a Gilbane VDC engineering team recently documented measurement discrepancies on a high-profile building construction project. This report examines why Gilbane now makes laser scanning an indispensable part of their construction management process.
Game Changer: How a Small, Light, and More Affordable Laser Scanner Transformed the Construction Industry
There was a time when laser scanning for construction purposes seemed destined to remain a nice but unattainable idea. Then in 2010 the ground shifted. A surprisingly small, capable, and affordable laser scanner cleared the hurdles to turn the marketplace upside down. Welcome to the FARO Focus3D Laser Scanner.
Get the facts on the FARO Focus3D Laser Scannerâ€¦ease of use with the automation of nearly every laser scanning process. Learn what differentiates us.
Watch how laser scanning technologies were used in the construction of a 5-story student center. Situated next to Chicago's elevated train tracks, this project presented unique challenges. Laser applications were used for modeling and quality control on concrete pours. This construction company lessened the amount of re-work, proving true savings to the client.
Broad, Immediate, and Profound: Laser Scanning Helps Guide the Rebirth of L.A.â€™s Legendary Century Plaza Hotel in a $2.5 Billion Development Project
To strip the Century Plaza Hotel down to its structural components, the Webcor team needed to precisely understand existing conditions. Among the challenges: aged construction documentation and the architectâ€™s extremely tight tolerances for the interior rebuild. Read how laser scanning identified key issues that were able to be resolved to help move this construction project forward.
Read how Pepper Construction uses laser-based applications to automate, simplify, and transform building processes. Columbia Collegeâ€™s new student center in Chicago abuts an elevated train track, presenting unique challenges for construction. Laser scanning technologies were used for modeling, and maximum efficiencies in preparing concrete pours.
Watch why this structural concrete contractor chose laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects - scanning every single deck from the ground up.
Is It Level? Is It Flat?: DPR Construction Knows the Answers Faster Than Ever on a $60 Million California Medical Center
There was a time when determining the flatness of a slab pour meant scheduling floor profilers to walk the slab, take readings, import data, and generate an F-number report. Now there is a simpler, faster, and more advanced way to determine floor flatness.
Read about how this structural concrete contractor now uses laser scanning technology to document as-built conditions on their projects.
Wet-Pour Quality Control: Compressing Workflow in Concrete Slab Pour Flatness and Levelness Measurement
Is it level? Is it flat? For concrete construction contractors, finishing foremen, superintendents, flooring inspectors, and structural engineers, they are the central questions to any large concrete pour. Read how new measurement technology transforms workflows, improves pour outcomes, and simplifies measurement.
