  • Robotic vs. Manual Total Stations: A Q&A with Golden Construction

    Robotic total stations and intelligent field layout software are gaining in popularity because of their benefits, but as with any new technology, the associated costs and learning curve seem intimidating at first. Golden Construction in Birmingham, Ala., recently invested in the Leica iCON robots with surprising results. We sat down with Golden Construction's Steven Denney, a veteran field engineer , to talk about some of the benefits his firm has experienced since adopting the use of robotic total stations in the field.

  • How Mallory Collier Drives BIM at Brasfield & Gorrie

    Mallory Collier, the lead virtual design coordinator for Brasfield & Gorrie’s Nashville operations, has a long history with building information modeling. Collier’s experience with BIM goes all the way back to college, where she was a member of the first BIM competition team at Auburn University. “I did my thesis on BIM,” said Collier. “We had to take a project through the process from inception to finish. The technology was still fairly new then, so I learned some in the classroom and the rest was self-taught in the field.”

  • BIM Makes Prefab Easy for Nelson-Carlson Mechanical

    Nelson-Carlson Mechanical, a family owned plumbing and mechanical company that has been in business for almost 100 years, recently found itself faced with a growing requirement – especially with its government contracts – to use building information modeling (BIM). As Nelson-Carlson implemented the changes necessary to adopt a BIM workflow, the company quickly evolved from using 3D layout solely on an as-needed basis to using it almost every day.
