3D Scanning in BIM: a Cost/Benefit Analysis

December 6, 2017
The construction industry has seen more than its share of change on the tech front in the last several decades. And yet, a recent article in The Economist noted that construction project inefficiency in the United States is at its worst state in over 50 years!
 
So, it raises the question: with so much new, shiny hardware and software at our fingertips, how can construction professionals use these innovations to quantifiably improve their efficiency, quality, and profitability of projects?
 
In this guide, 3D Scanning in BIM: a Cost/Benefit Analysis we drill down specifically into one aspect of the BIM construction workflow — the collection of as-built data and location verification for existing mechanical systems during the planning and layout phases of a
renovation or retrofit project — and focus on how tech investment can result in solid ROI.
