Diversification through scanning

Professional Surveyor Magazine, February 2013
This feature article in the February 2013 issue of Professional Surveyor Magazine (PSM) describes how US-based Fenstermaker & Associates used their Leica Geosystems laser scanning tools (hardware and software) and their own capabilities to successfully diversify their surveying and engineering business. The ability to use Leica scanners and software for traditional civil/survey mapping and as-built surveys and to then leverage the combined capabilities into new markets is well documented. In this case, Fenstermaker not only diversified their traditional civil infrastructure surveying services into "downstream" oil & gas clients (e.g. refineries), but they also successfully added new engineering documentation capabilities and dimensional control services to better service these new clients. For these extensions, Fenstermaker developed plant documentation skills with CADWorx software (provided by Leica Geosystems' sister company, Intergraph) and high-accuracy dimensional control capabilities based on Leica Geosystems survey and metrology-grade total stations.
