ENHANCING BIM WORKFLOWS VIA ARCHITECTURAL METROLOGY
New firm practices the art and science of architectural measurement
“We measure difficult subjects” is the tagline of architectural metrology business Glapin Milphrey LLC, a startup company that provides architectural measurement services to AEC professionals looking to improve their BIM workflows. Formed earlier this year, Glapin Milphrey is the brainchild of architect Doug Brinley, who has developed workflow processes for digitally measuring 3D spaces and converting the spatial information for direct transfer to modeling applications. Based in Seattle, Glapin Milphrey’s spatial datasets are purely electronic and are collected using reflectorless, robotic electronic distance measuring technology.
