Since 1961, the engineers and field crew at DJS Associates, Inc. have utilized the most state-of-the-art technology in our investigations. Our commitment to our clients to stay up-to-date on the latest technology for collecting, analyzing and demonstrating data continues with the purchase of two (2) Leica RTC 360 scanners and the BLK 360 scanner. The recent investments have led to a trip down memory lane, where we looked back at how the methods of collecting data have changed over the years. Stories were shared of equipment breaking, inspection bloopers, and most importantly the monumental projects taken on by our team. To commemorate the newest purchases, and the exceptional work that has been done to date, we have created a timeline of our technology over the years. Enjoy!

Case study: ADA Compliance
ADA standards state that, “Among other things, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures access to the built environment for people with disabilities. The ADA Standards establish design requirements for the construction and alteration of facilities subject to the law. These enforceable standards apply to places of public accommodation, commercial facilities, and state and local government facilities.”

DJS Associates utilizes a number of different tools to collect important data. Whether we are working on a forensic case, capturing as-built measurements for AEC documentation, or digitally preserving important historic landmarks, it is always important to have the right tool for the job. We previously discussed our use of DSLR cameras, video recording systems, and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs). Here, we will look at our use of 3D laser scanning technology, and some of our laser scanners.
