The American Society of Concrete Contractors, (ASCC), St. Louis, Missouri., will hold a second Laser Scanning Workshop on Tolerances in conjunction with the 2019 World of Concrete. Dr. Bruce Suprenant, PhD, PE, FACI, CSI: CSSA, CCS, Technical Director of the ASCC, is the workshop coordinator.

General and concrete contractors, manufacturers of laser screening equipment, scanning processing companies, and others in the industry will present and discuss 3D laser scanning for concrete tolerances. The morning will feature presentations on separate topics while the afternoon will be devoted to working groups to discuss recommended practices for laser scanning for tolerances. The workshop is by invitation only and is limited to 50 individuals.

The objective is to develop content for a draft of the ACI-ASCC 117 Tolerances Committee’s new document on “Guide to 3D Laser Scanning for Concrete Tolerances.” Featured at this year’s workshop will be a discussion of the laser scanning data obtained at an ASCC-sponsored laser scanning repeatability and reproducibility event held in San Francisco in October. The eight participating companies will discuss their best practices for 3D laser scanning for concrete tolerances.

The ASCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of those who build with concrete, and to providing them a unified voice in the construction industry. Members include concrete contracting firms, manufacturers, suppliers and others interested in the concrete industry such as architects, specifiers and engineers. There are approximately 730 member companies in the U.S. and 12 foreign countries.
