    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 will highlight practical examples on how to utilize laser scans as the sole source of truth and reference into our design software. Additionally we will review our unique process in which we remove all demolition objects from the scan model to coordinate with the proposed scope of work. Project examples will demonstrate how SSOE has been able to competitively bid projects while still maintaining a healthy profit margin. This session features ReCap 360, Navisworks Manage, and Revit.
