Accelerate Live! talk: 3D laser scanning for the project lifecycle, FARO Technologies (sponsored)

   

The project lifecycle has become more complex and challenging over the last decade. Logistics planning, schedules, limited working space, coordination of BIM models, and so many other factors affect how our projects are completed. 

Since the introduction of laser scanning to the AEC industry, significant changes have come to the way we handle each stage of the project lifecycle. 

In this talk, Brent Slawnikowski, Account Manager, Construction BIM-CIM with FARO Technologies, Inc., and Jennifer Suerth, LEED AP, Vice President, Technical Services with Pepper Construction, discuss ways that 3D laser scanning can be applied throughout the project lifecycle and how implementation of laser scanning technology has helped Pepper Construction become more successful in the completion of their projects.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Brent Slawnikowski brings over eight years of surveying, laser scanning and civil engineering practice to the industry. Brent graduated from Purdue University Calumet in 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. During his four-year tenure at Purdue Calumet, he worked as an intern for Great Lakes Engineering and two years later took the role of Project Engineer at FALK PLI Engineering & Surveying. Expanding his reach, a little further, Brent relocated to Florida in 2014 where he spent a year with CAPTEC Engineering as a Project Engineer. After his one-year tenure in Florida, he relocated back to Northwest Indiana, where he picked up where he left off at FALK PLI Engineering & Surveying. Seeing an opportunity to offer his knowledge and experience to the AEC market, he joined FARO in June 2016.

As Vice President of Technical Services at Pepper Construction, Jennifer Suerth provides strategic direction for the company with regard to BIM, laser scanning, virtual reality and other technical services specialties. She serves as a key advisor to project teams on constructability and implementation strategies throughout the early stages of project design and development, as well as providing leadership on construction, fabrication and facility management. Jen has more than 12 years of experience in architecture, engineering and construction. She is a leader in the Chicago virtual construction community, speaking frequently and running workshops educating others on BIM. She has been recognized among 2016 Women in Construction by Constructech Magazine, Chicago Building Congress Future Leaders and ENR Midwest's Top 20 Under 40. Jen holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Studies and a Master of Architecture, Structures, both from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Accelerate Live! talk: Scaling change in a changing industry, Chris Mayer, Suffolk Construction

 

In the GC community, Suffolk Construction was one of the first to not only recognize the potential of emerging technologies, like drones and reality capture, but to establish a formal process for vetting these tools.

The firm established R&D teams across the organization to pilot technologies on actual projects. If the desired results were achieved, the team would then evaluate the scalability across the organization.

It all sounds so simple, right? Well it’s not.

In this 15-minute talk at BD+C’s Accelerate Live! conference (May 11, 2017, Chicago), Chris Mayer, Suffolk’s Chief Innovation Officer, talks about the firm’s framework for vetting and implementing new technologies and processes.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Chris Mayer is the Executive Vice President & Chief Innovation Officer at Suffolk Construction. In this role, he is responsible for overseeing the company's innovation initiatives, managing their execution, and measuring their results to achieve safer and more affordable building. In addition, Chris heads up Suffolk's Innovation Committee, which is focused on identifying new innovations and testing them for feasibility. Prior to joining Suffolk, Chris was a consultant in the digital media and online education industries where his focus was on developing strategic technology plans that align with, and enable, successful business growth. Chris also worked as the Publisher of the Boston Globe newspaper and websites for four years and worked at the news organization for nearly 30 years. He oversaw the Globe's two-brand online strategy, developed new technologies that allowed subscribers to access Globe content on smartphones and tablets, and launched RadioBDC which introduced the Globe to a new digital radio audience. Chris currently serves on the board of Community Servings, a not-for-profit food and nutrition program that provides services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Chris received his Bachelor of Science degree in computer science from Yale University.
