BIM, VDC and the Freedom Tower

This is not exactly on the topic of laser scanning, but hopefully it doesnt take too much imagination to see how it would fit in. This video provides a short look at the use of BIM Building Information Modeling and perhaps more importantly VDC virtual design and construction as it applies to the new Freedom Tower in New York City.

Laser scanning is a critical 3D measurement technology in the practical application of VDC. It is a risk management tool that can be used to monitor field progress.

Its great to see this tower rising on this site.
