During an online event hosted by ULI Cincinnati, participants learned how The Kleingers Group’s reality capture company, TrueScan, designed innovative uses for laser scanning to benefit construction projects on some of Cincinnati’s most notable landmarks.
Course instructors highlighted project work done on UC Health’s Emergency Department Expansion, Paul Brown Stadium’s Turf Replacement, the PNC Building, and a fascinating waterline replacement for the FC Cincinnati Stadium project.
Our Speakers Were
Brendan Welsh, PS, PE, Group Leader leads Kleingers’ TrueScan Group and is both a professional surveyor and professional engineer. He holds licensure in five states for survey and four for engineering. Brendan has managed and contributed technical expertise to projects with costs ranging from thousands to billions of dollars. His background as a surveyor makes him uniquely positioned to provide a comprehensive understanding of spatial data and its applications.
Brendan showed how the millions of real-world data points of scanning help architects and engineers build based on the actual conditions rather than outdated plans. He’ll demonstrate the value of how a single scan over hand measurements provides a level of detail that exposes every inch of walls, floors, ceilings, mechanical systems, structural components, architectural components, etc.
Jared White is TrueScan’s 3D Modeling Lead. He has more than eight years of experience, a degree in architecture, and is a UAS Pilot. All of these credentials have helped him to work with hundreds of clients to meet the engineering needs in the architectural, civil, industrial aerospace, nuclear, automotive, and power industries. Some of Jared’s high-profile projects in the area include the Cincinnati Art Museum Center at Union Terminal and the University of Dayton Arena, for example. He shared how the millions of data points captured every second, documenting every spec of a project into a digital map of the inside and outside a project, is used by designers to minimize risk and surprises.
ULI Cincinnati thanks The Kleingers Group for their support and the opportunity to offer this information to members and non-members.
