Collapse Expand


Embracing digitalization is widely recognized as the key to increasing transparency, efficiency, and productivity in construction. But in an industry that remains largely locked in decades-old processes and document-driven workflows, the best approach for capturing and using digital data is often still a mystery. The last several years have brought the introduction of compact, easy-to-use, 3D laser scanners and wearable, mobile mapping systems that enable renovations and retrofits to be captured digitally in a matter of days. New, indoor reality capture innovations deliver incredible simplicity, efficiency, and safety in as-built documentation. Software advances have been equally impressive, making it possible for users to quickly move from data capture to .RCP files for accurate, intelligent design.
