ecko360 sees uptick in Reality Capture usage.
Everything was already headed in this direction, COVID-19 just opened alot of peoples eyes to what is possible.(Virtual Site Management) “I believe when we reach the other side of this, it’s going to be the new standard. There are far too many advantages to ignore” said ecko360 Founder Hunter Bankston.
Reality capture involves the use of advanced technologies like 3D laser scanners and high definition 360-degree cameras to collect existing or as-built conditions for use during design, construction and operations. By capturing field conditions quickly and accurately, reality capture tools reveal inconsistencies between what’s “real” versus what is represented in the design plans. This helps to optimize schedules, reduce change orders, increase predictability in the field, reduce risk and enhance quality assurance. Skanska has in-house reality capture capabilities that directly support our project teams to quickly turn-around high definition scans and models for use in the field.
