Leica C10, CloudWorx bring big benefits to small firm's football field/track renovation project

"Touchdown" Idaho renovation project featured in POB, October 2014
This 4-page article details the many, significant benefits achieved when The Land Group, a small, multi-disciplinary firm in Idaho, used their ScanStation C10 and Leica CloudWorx software on a recent topographic survey. The survey supported their internal civil and architectural design team on a high school football field/track renovation project. The survey deliverable was only a simple 2D topo map. However, the project and site featured many aspects where the benefits of laser scanning and Leica’s suite of tools came into play. This included: a tight window to collect data; high detail needed for design of the track surface to meet demanding state and national standards; high detail needed for tie-ins and ADA compliance; changing project scope; line-of-sight analyses that benefited from 3D point cloud visualization; multi-discipline use of the data; and scanning’s cascading benefits for design, construction, and the school district/owner. Internally, using Leica tools reduced field costs by >50%. The firm was also able to avoid multiple, additional site visits that would have otherwise been needed (if surveyed conventionally) to accommodate the changing scope. In addition, using Leica’s scanning hardware and software on this project led to additional business for The Land Group with the project’s Construction Management firm (Beniton Construction). Plus, The Land Group has since adopted scanning and CloudWorx for AutoCAD as their go-to method for many more 2D topographic surveys.
