How Laser Scanning Can Help You Get The Job Done While Social Distancing

In 2020, working from home has become a new reality for people in different industries across the globe. Life, as we know it, has changed. Here at Datum Tech Solutions, we understand that employee safety is a top priority, and we know it takes time to adapt to working remotely when everything is changing so quickly. 

The construction industry faces the challenge of not falling behind on projects underway while ensuring the health of workers. During social distancing, laser scanning gives team members access to data and information they can use to continue to get the job done. This technology enables the AEC (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) community to accomplish projects at a quicker rate than ever before while minimizing the risk for contact. 

Let’s explore how laser scanning can help keep your business running. 


Laser scanning is used to create BIM models as well as 3-D and 2-D models. Laser scanning streamlines the process of planning, design, building, and construction. From concept to delivery, there is less room for errors. 

Projects that once took several hours to complete can now be done in a matter of minutes, so employees can return home quickly and get the job done safely. For example, with tools like Leica Geosystems’, BLK2GO, and BLK360, we can now execute during the design, construction, and maintenance cycles with higher quality. Scans can be done in less time, and the data provided is essential throughout the building process.
