Utilizing 3D Laser Scanning, CPC was commissioned by the General Contractor to provide verification of the steel beam structures to design plans. Identifying any conflicts and by exposing any inaccuracies early in the process, before they happen, translate into huge savings for you on rework/design. Laser scanning can help reduce RFI’s and minimize costs of change orders related to field conditions. Laser scanning gives the design team more information up-front, allowing design decisions to happen sooner and makes for a more complete set of bidding drawings.  This, in turn, allows contractors to have confidence in their bids, to fully utilize BIM for virtual construction, and to prefabricate more of their products, all of which allow contractors to meet critical path schedule dates and limit both re-orders of materials and delays due to unforeseen field conditions.
