Breakout Sessions


More GCs who scan projects and provide them for all trades raise concerns for MEP contractors, including scanning the wrong areas, missing details, and working on different timelines. This session will explore how to recapture work to make VDC and prefabrication more viable, and the second part will discuss using point clouds beyond data collection to improve project workflow for multi-trade or facility team pre-purchase equipment.
