Murphy gave a presentation on 3D Scanning and Building Services at the conference on Thursday, June 3.

Josh has nearly a decade of experience managing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D Scanning technology. He oversees Schemmer’s 3D Scanning Services and is tasked with not only maintaining our significant investment in state-of-the-art scanning equipment, but also providing research and leadership regarding implementation of new technology applicable to the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry. He works alongside Schemmer’s designers to offer owners and general contractors a streamlined approach to the construction process.

Schemmer has incorporated 3D building scanning in our design process using the industry’s latest in 3D Laser Scanners. Not only for use in the design process, this technology can be incorporated into the construction phase to provide “as-constructed” models of various building systems that may be concealed by finishes or other construction. Murphy provided his insight on how facility directors and building operators can utilize 3D Scanning to improve building maintenance efficiency and accuracy.
