Our teams utilize technology like the Trimble X7. The 3D scanner sends vision-safe lasers to measure the building or jobsite. It then converts those measurements into a 3D model known as a Point Cloud which provides the design and construction team with a real-time as-built model of the site. Doing real-time scanning helps the team identify potential problems, verify existing conditions, and provide accurate plans and drawings to the owner after construction. ...
