Implementing Technology on a Historic to Modern Renovation


The challenge for historic building renovations is the reliability, efficiency, and accuracy of existing documentation and existing conditions.  Laserscan technology is an efficient, accurate, and low-cost process that benefits both the design process and construction coordination process. 

Originally built in 1905, this historically significant building is undergoing a complex, design-build renovation into a modern education facility. The presentation is delivered by the Design-Build team as a case study of strategy, process, best practices, and lesson learned of implementing the laserscan to improve the quality of the construction of documents, and enhance 3D building coordination during construction.

Hosted by the Project Delivery AIA Knowledge Community
