Adapting Business to the New Normal

The last 16 months of lockdown, social distancing, facemask wearing and the like have been grueling. But now, as the economy heats up (US GDP grew at a 6.4 percent rate in Q1 2021) along with the temps, maximizing – and adapting business to – the post-Covid world is more important than ever.

From the FARO blog.

For companies like Pittsburgh-based Limbach Holdings Inc., (with 10 branch offices throughout the US) that means a dedicated push toward upping their efficiency gains while reducing their per-project spend – all without loss of accuracy or quality control. Recently the publicly traded company (NASDAQ: LMB) which specializes in integrated building systems with expertise in the design, installation, management, service, and maintenance of HVAC, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and control systems, sought to improve its MEP workflows by incorporating 3D laser scanning/reality capture solutions into its business model.

To affect that change, earlier this year, Limbach purchased two FARO® Focuss 350 Laser Scanners from FARO Technologies Inc. along with its SCENE Software, As-Built™ Software, and Webshare Cloud, a suite of three programs ideal for site documentation for building structures as well as plant and MEP systems which include piping or HVAC. Combined, the hardware and software solutions have helped the $568 million revenue company streamline costs, enhance the efficiency of their workflows, accelerate project completion, and perhaps most important, navigate the ongoing health and safety restrictions related to Covid-19, and at the same time, attract new business in novel ways.

“The scanners are really allowing us to send one guy in to a project and capture in a few hours what a team of people used to do over the course of a week – field measuring, documenting, etc.,” said Mark Lamberson CPD, Limbach’s National VDC Manager. “So the scanner is grabbing every detail and I can share that file with all 10 branches of the company so that we can leverage the best people for the job.”
