As-Built Surveying Best Practices (1.5 LU)
As-Built Surveying Best Practices Part 2 is a comprehensive course that was developed in response to architects’ direct need to obtain as-built plans prior to beginning their design process. The class is intended to educate the attendee about both parts of the as-built survey process – gathering the field measurements of the structure, as well as using the data collected to draft or model the final plans needed by the architect.
The first part of the course focuses on laser scanning, which is quickly being adopted as the main form of field measuring because of its efficiency and accuracy. The second half of the course explains the second step in creating As-Built plans, which is to document the existing conditions using the Point Cloud in AutoCAD 2D drafting software and/or various 3D Building Information Modeling software.
When attendees complete the course, they will understand the full process for creating As-Built plans using laser scanning as the main method for gathering field measurements.
