The firm is expanding its capabilities through the recent purchase of a Leica ScanStation C10.

ELYRIA, OH - KS Associates, a multi-disciplined civil engineering and surveying firm, now offers 3D laser scanning services through its recent purchase of a Leica ScanStation C10, which collects thousands of points per second at the push of a button.

“3D laser scanning allows our clients to virtually revisit the project site throughout the entire design process, which can save time and enhance the design process," said Mark B. Skellenger, P.E., vice president of KS Associates. "Clients appreciate the ability to extract datasets at any time. They have access to information that might not have been considered critical at the time of field data capture – data that would be time-consuming and costly to re-capture.”

Skellenger said clients will also benefit from the ability of the scanner to non-intrusively capture data for areas that are otherwise inaccessible, such as high-level bridges and overpasses; intricate, hard-to-reach piping systems; or historically preserved off-limit areas, which can now be scanned remotely.

“This new high-tech tool is yet one more way KS Associates can offer the best solution for the project at hand," he said. "Not only will 3D laser scanning enhance our surveying capabilities, it will allow us to serve clients for new, interesting applications, such as industrial refineries and plants, mining and exploration, and possibly forensics.”
