May 2013 – With the purchase of a new Leica ScanStation C10, TWM demonstrated a commitment to providing clients with efficient service and exceptional results by investing in the latest technology. In land surveying, 3D laser scanning is expanding industry capabilities, allowing large amounts of data to be collected, mapped, modeled, and re-configured much more quickly and in far more detail than in the past – and in some cases, where traditional methods simply would not work.
TWM has five years of experience using 3D laser scanning in those instances. Some of the most notable include:
- BJC Institute of Health at Wash U – St. Louis, MO – 3D mapping of two floors of mechanical infrastructure for renovation / expansion by contractor.
- Whiteman Air Force Base – Kansas City, MO – Verification and certification of the volume of a recently rehabilitated 73-foot diameter JP-8 jet fuel tank.
- Rock City Business Development, National Archives Personnel Records Center – Valmeyer, IL – Mapping and modeling interior of former limestone mine for most efficient storage of government records.
- Belleville Water Reclamation Facility – Belleville, IL – Mapping and modeling existing intricate network of piping and valves inside wastewater treatment plant building, for reconfiguration during expansion of the plant.
By TWM owning rather than renting the expensive equipment, as most other firms might do, TWM’s clients get the advantage of more timely service, more extensive experience, and more knowledgeable and technically proficient staff.
