Apogee BIM Coordinator Adam Lega and Mechanical Designer Aaron Stidolph have been selected to speak at the 2019 BIMForum in St. Louis, Missouri in September. BIMForum is hosted by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America.
Lega and Stidolph will be giving their presentation entitled A Million Points of Data during the Show Me the Strategy breakout track on Wednesday, September 18th at 9 AM CST.
The program will explore the following:
What happens when you have deliverables for a project that do not meet with original scope and project requirements? As consulting engineers, we find ourselves fighting an uphill battle against time and budgets to fully understand site conditions, client requirements, and avenues of project progress, all from afar. The promise of laser scanning and reality capture often leaves us disappointed in the unrealized potential, due to some common misconceptions. At Apogee, we have busted these misconceptions many times, through very sobering, eye-opening experiences. Crafting a model based on a point cloud requires time, energy, and solid effort on the part of our production teams. This session will focus on metric-based results that qualify and quantify why we started using laser scanners for production, in order to improve upon our traditional survey techniques. Using case studies from both successful and unsuccessful laser scan projects, we will explain to attendees our best practices for implementing laser scanning and reality capture in our building documentation processes.
Congratulations to Adam and Aaron for this honor. Apogee is excited to have you represent us on the national stage!
