3D Laser Scanning

We utilize 3D laser scanners during the early phases of most projects to document existing conditions for interior shell spaces, floor levelness and as-built conditions. We also utilize this tool throughout construction to ensure quality installation for trades such as rebar, façade installation and other critical path items.

Clash Detection

We employ the latest clash detection software and techniques to analyze the design and coordination of each discipline to ensure constructability, quality and performance.  The clash detection meetings allow the various parties involved on a project to provide feedback and comments regarding the shape of the design.

Robotic Layout

By utilizing the latest robotic layout tools, we are able to confirm control points and layout coordinates to ensure precision and quality control. Throughout this process, we capture each of these data points and are able to provide an electronic as-built record for our clients at the end of a project.
