Structured Light Scans vs. Lidar (Laser Scan): Differentiating the Value Streams
Chad Knutson & Alexander Rayis, Gilbane Building Company
Description: Traditional laser scanning has proven its value with quality and accuracy of the data collected and will remain “the standard” for many uses on construction projects.  The downside to Lidar is cost, file size, and the speed of data collection.  Structured light scan implementation adds value where Lidar scans would not be practical; time savings, affordable technology, and easy cloud storage. This is ideal for smaller projects that do not require high dimensional accuracy, but understanding and communication is the goal.  I will discuss the delineation of uses where each type of scan saves time and money.
Learning Objective 1: Understand the difference between Lidar and Structured Light Scans
Learning Objective 2: Understand the differentiated value proposition for the use of each type of scan

Gilbane exhibiting at A4LE North Carolina Chapter Conference

The conference will explore the potential impacts, innovations and inspirations that may result from transforming spaces to empower each and every individual learner. Whether you call it Project-Based Learning, 21st Century Learning or hands-on learning, one thing is clear – this isn’t the school we all grew up in. Curriculum focuses on the development of creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. How do our facilities reflect, support and promote today’s learning styles? How does it work for each individual student? How do we transform existing spaces to support this mission?

Schools, educational leaders and designers are dedicated to preparing students for life in collaborative learning environments and cooperative work teams. School design is following suit, with environments that encourage multi-disciplinary education that more closely simulates the workplace, our lives and our future in a rapidly changing world.
