Coast 2 Coast Surveys, a Chattanooga, TN based producer of facility documentation and as-built services, is expanding their fleet of laser technology by adding a new tool to their repertoire: the FARO Focus3d, a small, lightweight laser scanner that provides higher-quality target acquisition and faster scan times, which in turn provides faster results.

From crime scene analysis to 3D CGI modeling, the FARO has the distinction of being the smallest full-function laser scanner ever built.

The FARO scanner has been applied in a wide range of fields, from crime scene analysis to 3D CGI modeling, and has the distinction of being the smallest full-function laser scanner ever built, weighing in at around 11 pounds. Coast 2 Coast intends to use the FARO Focus3d to aid them in several areas, including digital building modeling and capturing data on complex and difficult to reach areas that might otherwise be inaccessible with manual surveying.

Despite its broad range of applications, FARO representative David Dustin mentioned that Coast 2 Coast and the Focus3d are a “natural fit.” “Coast 2 Coast has a good deal of previous experience with the technology,” he said, “and they’re assimilating it in very well, which gives them an advantage over the competition. They can now quote more accurately and do so faster; this should be a valuable tool for them.”

With more than 15 years of field service experience and employee surveyors in over 30 cities across the country, Coast 2 Coast Surveys provides a variety of services to architects, engineers, builders, sign manufacturers and project management firms both national and international. The addition of the FARO allows C2C to leverage its previous experience with new video modeling capabilities to offer more documentation than ever before. Quicker response times give surveyors the potential to reach more locations faster, making this tool a great resource for multi-site programs and large projects. Partner with Coast 2 Coast to see the difference.
