Terrain Surveys Holds a Successful CPD Event at Tewin Bury Farm
On 10th March 2016, the Terrain Surveys team held a Continual Professional Development (CPD) event held at Tewin Bury Farm where they presented a demonstration of laser scanning and 3D modelling to 25 construction professionals from across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
This CPD event was the latest in a series of presentations about Building Information Modelling and 3D Laser Scanning which have also been hosted by Terrain Surveys for major architects’ and chartered surveyors’ practices in London and the South East in the past.
Director John Lane presented examples of how the team have used the technique to save time in capturing detailed measurements of building interiors, exteriors and landscapes. There was also an interactive presentation where a live scan captured a 3D model of the audience watching the presentation.
This was followed by some lively discussion about the relative advantages of the techniques and how 3D laser scans are translated into Revit and similar models, the level of detail which is required, timescales & costs as well as the briefing process.
CPD events are useful as they give professionals the opportunity to document and track your skills, knowledge and experience. If you would like Terrain Surveys to arrange a highly useful CPD event for you and your colleagues, please contact John Lane on 01438 841300.
