Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling for Construction and Facilities Management Projects


Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling for Construction and Facilities Management Projects

On-demand Webinar | Free

This discussion will highlight how LiDAR data and imagery were used to create an accurate building information model that is currently being used for airport design, construction, and integration into their facilities management program. Visualization capabilities and survey-grade accuracies are some of the highlights of the developed building model and the presenters will explore how their solutions and workflows utilize these efficiencies to create real differences.


Matthew LaLuzerne, PSM
Vice President/Strategic Growth Director, GPI Geospatial, Inc.

Matthew LaLuzerne, PSM is the Vice President and the Strategic Growth Director for GPI Geospatial, Inc. He has over 15 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of managing and performing various types of survey and geospatial projects, ranging from geodetic control surveys to multiplatform remote sensing services. Matt works closely with the GPI team to capture high-resolution point cloud data of architectural, structural, and MEP elements of a building, including airport design and construction projects.
