Kirk Kohlbrand, PS
Kirk is a licensed surveyor in Kentucky and has years of experience in a variety of complex environments. He has worked with Truescan3D for the past several years.
With more than 20 years of survey experience, Tom understands how to complete projects quickly and efficiently. He assists on-site with data acquisition and processing, survey control and safety.
Hardworking and driven to learn. Charlie has been working in the survey field for nearly seven years. He recently joined the Truescan team and is applying his survey experience in initial control and data collection processes.
Nathan joined The Kleingers Group in September 2015 as an inside Survey Technician. His survey experience allowed him to work with Truescan on projects at St Louis Barnes-Jewish Hospital and the Toledo Jeep Wrangler Paint Facility. Nathan spends his time working on a variety of projects with the survey department, handles most of the GIS requests and manages the GIS data for the West Chester Office.
Terrance models buildings, plants, factories, pipes, and residential buildings. Terrance constructs interior details ranging from simple generic models to extremely detailed historic stained-glass windows on churches. He creates custom Revit families and materials as needed, lends help with registering point clouds, and occasionally goes in the field to scan buildings to create the 3D point cloud model.
Brandon is a licensed drone pilot and has five years of experience with laser scanning, drone operations, construction survey and layout. He is responsible for data collection through laser scanning on a variety of sites, registering the data and preparing it for the client’s use. Brandon’s familiarity with working in a variety of complex environments gives him the knowledge and necessary skills to work on scanning projects of all types and sizes.
Rick brings 20 years of experience with 10 plus years of topographic mapping and surveying to the Truescan3D team. He is responsible for collection of field data using laser scanning, data registration and preparing it for clients use. His years of experience has given him an eye for details which helps him understand the complexities of a construction site and collect key information that others might miss.
Accurate to within a few millimeters, 3D laser scanning improves accuracy and reduces or eliminates oversights, clashes and material waste.
3D laser scanning data collection is fast and efficient, having minimal, if any, negative impact on performance schedules and seasons.
Beginning a new construction project with accurate, complete and reliable data has the potential to significantly compress project schedules. Documenting construction progress with 3D laser scanning can further reduce schedules, improve as-built quality and provide operational data to the facility owner/manager.
Roadway & Bridges
The safety of the field data collection team, as well as the traveling public, is greatly improved when data can be collected from safe distances versus temporary lane closures.
Architectural & Heritage
3D laser scanning is ideal for capturing existing conditions in buildings with limited record plans and spaces with complex, historic and decorative features.
