WBCM approaches the application of technology as one of its highest priorities and has created a dedicated team of technology professionals comprised of licensed surveyors, professional engineers, information technology, and GIS experts. This team works directly with all WBCM architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) services. WBCM’s Innovative Technology Team (ITT) is focused on cutting-edge technologies that can further enhance our services. This team researches, tests, and implements technology innovations that often necessitate process changes and works closely with each discipline to ensure success.
As advances in 3D digital modeling continue to occur, ITT is working to facilitate these advances by providing hands-on software support and developing new 3D digital bases. Two specific technologies have proven their value—Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) scanning. Utilizing 2D and 3D maps and models generated from these technologies, our teams are finding new and better ways to design, engineer, and manage our clients’ sites, infrastructure, and assets.
Whether terrestrial LIDAR, UAS, or a combination of both technologies, WBCM is collecting and processing site and asset data for a growing list of projects, then using this data to enhance our services and deliverables. We are committed to staying at the forefront of these exciting newer technologies and can assist with the application of terrestrial LIDAR and UAS for your specific needs.
