At the exhibition DEUBAU 2012 the architecture magazines AIT and xia Intelligente Architektur (Intelligent Architecture) announced the tenth winner of the “Innovation Prize for Architecture and Construction”. A total of 18 different manufacturers competed with 21 products. This important award emphasises the significance of architecture in the construction industry.
This year the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D was awarded the coveted innovation prize in the “Product of High Architectural Quality” category. A jury of well-known architects and engineers awarded this prestige architecture and design prize.
The Focus3D particularly impressed the jury with its innovative design and its technical performance. Moreover, the jury judged that the increasing need for 3D data was an indicator for the importance of this product. This means that time-consuming work such as measuring or area and quantity surveying can be significantly shortened very easily with the aid of modern laser scanners – thoroughly, quickly and cost-effectively.
With its high degree of precision, the device is able to assist construction managers, structural construction companies and the tradesmen carrying out the work with quality assurance at the building site: for example in the construction of façades, in checking the precise fit of assembled elements, in checking formwork elements in concrete structures, in positioning structurally sensitive supports and in numerous other applications.
