Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling for Airport Design, Construction and Facilities Management Projects

2:50 PM - 3:10 PM
This presentation will demonstrate the use of high definition laser scanning to capture detailed building information for 3D building information modeling (BIM). A sample project for Hartsfield Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia will be used to detail the procedures and innovative approaches for collecting and processing terrestrial LiDAR and high-resolution imagery within the small confines of existing airport infrastructure. In this presentation, we will explore the challenges of collecting simultaneous LiDAR and imagery in a vertical structural environment. Access to security areas, ceiling panel removal, and de-energizing of the airport’s people mover equipment are a few examples of the challenging logistics of this project. The presentation will wrap-up with an exploration of how the LiDAR data and imagery were used to create an accurate building information model that is currently being used for airport design, construction, and integration into their facilities management program. Visualization capabilities and survey grade accuracies are some of the highlights of the developed building model.
