Colorado-based LPR Construction is a forerunner in using modern BIM technology for erection planning and field operations. Their preconstruction engineers use the Tekla Structures for erection planning and visualization in 3D, and their surveying department also gets the benefits:
“We can take an IFC of our Tekla Structures model and integrate it into our surveying program, the Trimble Field Link,” says Zach Kimball, surveying manager at LPR Construction.
“When the model and all the components come into our surveying program, we can navigate the model and generate points on the fly in the field. It has really helped us become more efficient.”
