Mapping A Building's memory: How laser scanning can aid complex renovations (Construction Dive)

January 11, 2017 / Construction Dive

High accuracy and fast data capture have differentiated laser scanners from conventional measurement and mapping methods, particularly in construction, according to a December report from Transparency Market Research. The report noted the construction sector stands to reduce process costs and project labor hours as proliferation of the technology grows from a global market worth $959 million in 2016 to an estimated $2.5 billion by the end of 2023.

“We’re doing 3,600 scans per week in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico and still see a huge market for laser scanners,” said Ken Smerz, CEO and president of Phoenix, AZ–based Eco3d, a provider of topographic, structural, mechanical, and architectural condition capture via laser scanner and other imaging technologies. “But there still aren’t a lot of line items in new construction budgets for laser scanning, so we’re seeing it mostly in retrofit and preservation.”
