Why is regular checking and calibration of rotating lasers important?

Construction sites are harsh environments that put incredible strain on rotating lasers. These instruments are not treated with a lot of care – they get dropped, knocked down or toppled over and may also become covered in dirt and concrete. In the majority of construction projects, rotating lasers face so many impacts during regular use that their accuracy can no

Drones Are Making As-Builts 5X More Efficient

Drones have become an essential tool throughout the lifecycle of a construction project. However, one area where they have sometimes fallen short is in conducting as-built surveys. This is for a simple reason: drones have been designed to effectively capture imagery and data from the top down, but not from the side. Surveying a groomed site for pre-construction, for example,
