This session will cover how SSOE Group has changed its delivery process on retrofit projects to reduce waste in the engineering and construction process as a standard of care for its clients. The key point of this entire process is reliance on the laser scan and all team members working with the data in ReCap software, Navisworks software, and the modeling platform (Revit software, AutoCAD Plant 3D software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, or AutoCAD software). We'll cover how to plan your projects for reality capture, and bust myths on what you can or can not do. We'll present training materials and how to plan for making sure your team is adequately trained when your project begins to ramp up. Last, we'll review how to slam dunk your client and/or contractor review meetings with reality capture data and be the talk of the preferred suppliers among your peers.
- Learn how to use laser scanning successfully on your next project
- Learn strategies for modeling existing data versus reliance on point cloud only
- Learn how to use laser scans as the 2D backgrounds for construction documents
- Learn how to incorporate a process to demolish scan data for engineering
