OVERVIEW
As-built documentation is crucial to the development, planning and refurbishment of industrial sites and facilities. But the challenge for existing assets is the ability to turn decades’ worth of operational information and experience from various sources and systems into ‘applicable information’. As-built documents are often incomplete, or outdated and hence unreliable. Currency and accuracy of data is critical in design environments:
  • Aging Infrastructure
  • MEC Interference Co-ordination
  • Brownfield Facility Refurbishment
  • Maintenance Shut-downs
  • Strategic Facility Planning
Come hear how sophisticated data acquisition technology, such as 3D Laser Scanning, can reduce your production schedule, minimize risks and improve operational efficiency.

In this breakfast session, we will cover:
  • What is 3D point cloud data
  • How to work with 3D point cloud data in AutoCAD and Revit (live demonstration)
  • Actual case studies from the Niagara Region, applications & deliverables, QA/QC and workflow improvements as a result of utilizing this type of solution
