As-Built Surveying: Best Practices for Field Measurements from Traditional Methods to 3D Laser Technology
This class is a demonstration of how to procure a proper set of As-Built Plans when needed for any structure. It will briefly cover the reasons they are needed, technique in obtaining information onsite, and finally the drafting in CAD or modeling in Revit to suit your design needs.
This program is accredited by AIASF to provide 1 AIA Learning Unit to AIA member attendees.
- We’ll learn a few ways to begin a project by determining if As-Builts are needed. We’ll discuss the scope of work from an As-Built-only perspective and how that will help achieve different goals to give you a head-start on creating design elements, construction documents, and obtaining permits.
- We will run through some “traditional” but also fundamental methods to obtain As-Built Plans for all levels of scope.
- We will observe new methods for gathering data onsite such as Lidar Scanning and 3D Photogrammetry.
- We will learn how to put down our collected data into both AutoCAD & Revit.
About the Presenter
Colin Maloney Biography
Colin Maloney is the Regional Director of Precision Property Measurements’ Bay Area office serving Northern California’s AEC community with professional As-Built surveying services. Colin has worked with and utilized an array of As-Built surveying and drafting tools in his 20 years in the trade. He began his studies in architecture and soon learned his real passion was in drafting. In 2011, he discovered Precision Property Measurements (PPM) in Long Beach, California where he would develop his trade and expertise further among a seasoned team of As-Built experts. He began as a Drafter, and his sharp measuring skills soon became utilized as a Surveyor/ Measurer. Together Colin and the PPM team followed emerging As-Built technology and mastered the use of 3D Laser Scanning to streamline their process and ensure accuracy. Colin opened the Bay Area regional office in the fall of 2014 to bring an As-Built resource to Northern California’s AEC community. He has a sincere passion for ensuring his architectural clients have exactly what they need, so they can create innovative designs from accurate, affordable, and timely As-Built plans.
