McKim & Creed, one of the largest engineering and surveying firms in the U.S., announces its continued investment in the latest technologies by adding the NavVis VLX to its mobile LiDAR collection capabilities.
The NavVis VLX is a wearable mobile survey system designed specifically for capturing survey-grade point clouds (up to an accuracy of 8mm) and high-resolution imagery within challenging indoor and outdoor environments, including buildings and bridges. Equipped with two LiDAR sensors and four cameras, the NavVis VLX offers complete 360-degree data capture.
“With this cutting-edge technology, we will be able to better support our architectural partners by leveraging this scan-to-BIM and scan-to-CAD capability,” said McKim & Creed Senior Vice President Matt Daves, PE, LEED AP, CBCP. “The result of the point cloud data captured in the built environment will now deliver accurate as-built BIM models and CAD drawings in Revit, Autocad and Archicad.”
A leader in procuring the latest technology, McKim & Creed recognizes the importance of equipping our Geomatics experts with the best technology to continue to deliver high-quality survey and mapping services and solutions to our clients.
