Managing the Project Lifecycle

FARO’s reality capture solutions enable general and specialty contractors to collaborate to deliver buildings and services according to defined specs and project schedule.

Minimize project timeline

Minimize project timeline

With FARO laser scanning solutions contractors can continuously monitor construction sites throughout the entire project life cycle. By quickly capturing the project site throughout all phases, defects and errors can be quickly detected thus eliminating additional re-work or project delays. In addition, web-based cloud solutions permit data collaboration by various project partners simultaneously.

Eliminate unnecessary project costs

Eliminate unnecessary project costs

Utilizing FARO hardware and software will minimize overall project costs by providing accurate as-built conditions for the building life cycle. Eliminate rework, wasted raw materials, improper installations and cascading tolerance issues by quickly identifying defects or failures on-site. Laser scanning also improves risk mitigation by reducing the number of field-visits in hazardous areas.

Increase Project Quality

Increase Project Quality

FARO laser scanning solutions allow contractors to effectively monitor the construction progress in real time. Project engineers can manage specialty trades to ensure that mechanical, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems are installed according to quality specifications. Ultimately the overall construction quality will be raised to a higher level.
