Description

Description

This class will explain the fundamentals of laser scanning, explore its value and application in building construction, and reveal how reality-capture tools are shaping the future of the industry. Attendees will gain a basic understanding of what data is collected and how, typical scan-data processing workflows in ReCap software, and analysis for ASTM E1155 Concrete Floor Flatness & Levelness (FF/FL) reporting. We will share best practices for capturing data in the field; accurate and precise scan registration to ensure reliable results; and several examples of actual projects where ReCap software was used to enhance processes and communication. This session features ReCap.

Joshua DeStefano

Josh DeStefano is a regional Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager at DPR Construction. He began his career in construction as a project engineer in 2002, and he’s now responsible for overseeing BIM implementation in DPR's Southern California region, representing over $1 billion in project volume. DeStefano has lectured on BIM, lean, and integrated project delivery (IPD) at local universities. He is passionate about the exploration and integration of construction technologies, and developing his team to provide superior services.

Philip Lorenzo

After receiving his BS in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, Philip joined McCarthy Building Companies as a VDC Engineer. He then left to found Rithm, a software company bent on changing the way the construction industry deals with 3D scan data.

Over the years, he has worked tirelessly to create new workflows and standards for the industry - making complex processes simple and automated, and making the impractical now economical. He has been a leader and visionary in 3D laser scanning for construction.

Philip authored the ASTM 1155 2014 revision on Floor Flatness/Levelness assessments, and is Chair of Technology for the US Institute of Building Documentation, and adviser to a VC firm on reality capture. He is also a lead investigator for the American Society of Concrete Contractors on the use of reality capture to push the boundaries of building code compliance.

He is currently working with various stakeholders on redefining these standards in order to push adoption of reality capture technology, and improve transparency on projects across the world.
