Article: Reality Modelling Arrives

Interesting article about "Reality Modelling". Very BIM and construction focussed.

Features laser scanning but has some good perspectives from some large companies like Skanska and PCL in the US.

That is a great article. Kind of a snap-shot of the industry right now. Everyone scanning, folks looking for how they can scale these technologies (myself included).

Seems everyone has identified scanning and 360 photography as massive value adds. The only thing they did not hit on is construction layout, and how that relates to reality capture. I think that is the next one, but its much more difficult to implement.
