Reality Capture for Facilities Management

October 9, 2018 Peter Costanzo, FMP

Getting older facilities into a digital format that's easy to use is key to using your facilities management tools to their fullest. 

But re-creating old CAD drawings is time-consuming and still will not necessarily accurate reflect the as-built condition of your building.

Today, high-definition scanning (HDS) uses laser imaging to take millions of point measurements as well as 360 degree pictures. They're stitched together, allowing a full dataset of your existing facilities. The technology for HDS is evolving rapidly, and the cost for these devices has come down significantly. The scanners can be run by anyone in an FM department - including the intern. 

In this short demo, see how easy it is to work with these devices.
