Construction Layout with Robotic Total Stations

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is revolutionizing the construction industry thanks to extensive use of centrally-shared data and 3D modelling of modern developments. But, often, contractors still rely on printed plans, tape measures, and plumb lines to translate those designs to the field, which can lead to mistakes. The next evolution in BIM is technology, which …
