How to Save 87.5% on Every Layout Point

September 20, 2018

As a layout technician in the modern construction industry, you’re in one of three different boats:

  1. You’re handling layout using the manual process that’s “always worked in the past.”

  2. You’re handling layout digitally using a laser level and/or total station, but still working with manual (paper) plans and output.

  3. You’re handling layout using a robotic total station (RTS), working from a 3D model, and feeding your data back into the BIM workflow.

Of course, you may be attempting some sort of hybrid of those options, but — just like trying to stand on two different boats at the same time — it’s not easy, it’s not practical, and you’re bound to regret it eventually.

Everything else being equal, you’d likely agree that evolving with the industry and fully adopting automated layout technology makes good sense. But, everything really isn’t equal. In fact, from where you stand, there are a lot of issues up in the air:

  • As a layout technician, you may not have the decision-making power to lead the way to this level of tech adoption.

  • You may have little or no exposure to an RTS or related solutions, and have probably heard a number of myths and misconceptions about them that make you second guess taking that step.

  • You may simply not realize the potentially vast improvement to layout operations working with a quality RTS solution offers.

The purpose of this brief guide is threefold:
