The Construction Contract Administration Knowledge Community (CCA) has been established to help our members better understand the issues, actions and resultant impact of the decisions required in this often neglected part of Project Delivery. It is our goal to provide clear answers to issues of concern to the Institute’s membership and share case studies and best practices. We further hope to provide guidance and direction in developing guidelines for new and evolving approaches to Project Delivery as well as guidance in the continuing education of our emerging young professionals.
Has anyone used Lidar during construction, such as to help document the site and/or ensure quality control?
Lidar has been a popular topic of conversation in my circles, but I'd love to hear from people who have used or considered the practical application in their own work. We are currently using Lidar on a project and would like to make sure its worth the investment. Have you found Lidar to be particularly useful during construction? Are there any tools you've found essential for being able to utilize all the raw data you collect? What challenges have you had with Lidar? Any tips for people considering incorporating it into their own work?
Alternatively, if you've considered Lidar and decided not to use it, why?
