    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has adopted a just-in-time laser-scanning protocol for the Newark Liberty International Airport Terminal One (EWR T1) Redevelopment project—a 33-gate, innovative terminal that is part of the largest design-build project of New Jersey’s history. The construction team of Tutor Perini / Parsons, JV is continually scanning all of the construction as it happens, from the foundations through to the finished product, ensuring that nothing is missed as the building progresses. EWR T1 is a fantastic case study to show how we’re scanning on such an aggressive schedule, combined with working on a site of more than 1 million square feet. This class will cover our laser-scanning execution plan, including: laser-scanner technical specifications, PC hardware specs, scan data and deliverable management, advanced registration techniques, location of scan setups and targets, DIY target fabrication, survey control application, and much more.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the details involved in executing an aggressive "just in time" scanning process on very large project sites
    • Learn how to specify the correct PC and server hardware to handle large scanning projects of more than 7,500 scans
    • Learn how to build your own laser-scan targets easily and cheaply
    • Learn how to plan your scanning process in such a way to ensure you gather as much data as possible
