As-Built Surveying: Best Practices for Field Measurements from Traditional Methods to 3D Laser Technology

September 29, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Free Free to attend for both members and non-members

1.0 LU

Weekday Online Webinar Course Description:


This class is a demonstration of how to procure a proper set of As-Built Plans when needed for any structure. It will briefly cover the reasons they are needed, technique in obtaining information onsite, and finally the drafting in CAD or modeling in Revit to suit your design needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • We’ll learn a few ways to begin a project by determining if As-Builts are needed. We’ll discuss the scope of work from an As-Built-only perspective and how that will help achieve different goals to give you a head-start on creating design elements, construction documents, and obtaining permits.
  • We will run through some “traditional” but also fundamental methods to obtain As-Built Plans for all levels of scope.
  • We will observe new methods for gathering data onsite such as Lidar Scanning and 3D Photogrammetry. 
  • We will learn how to put down our collected data into both AutoCAD & Revit.

Everyone in attendance has a chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!

NOTE: Log-in link will be sent one day in advance of the program. Attendance will be taken using a link to a Google form during the presentation.


Cameron Slatterbeck is the Project Manager for our Southern California team. He’s worked with PPM for 9+ years in many capacities. Over the years, he’s watched As-Built Surveying techniques change and evolve to the more efficient, laser scanning process and level of detail we have today. He began drafting his freshman year of high school and continued into college. Adding years of on-the-job training, he grew from drafting, to surveying, and into project management. Today, he leads a team of surveyors and drafters who use the latest in 3D laser scanning technology to capture onsite data and draft/model offsite for our SoCal architects, designers, and homeowners. If you’ve worked with PPM, Cameron has been a big part of your As-Built Survey process ensuring the best deliverables.

When Cameron’s not hard at work managing projects, you can find him at a country music concert, checking out a new brewery or winery, or tackling his travel list to visit 50 states by the age of 50!

Greg Davies began working with PPM in 2013. A theatre major in college, his experience with surveying and drafting began in the theatre program using Vectorworks to draft lighting design, furniture, props, A/V set ups, and event spaces. A Chicago native, he even drafted city blocks for space planning some of the city’s biggest street festivals. After college, he pivoted to drafting for real estate firms using Vectorworks, Visio, and AutoCAD. In 2013, Greg headed to the sunny coast of California and began working with PPM where his love for drafting and technology flourished. Today, Greg is the man behind all of PPM’s laser scanning technology. He’s the researcher, vetter, and works endlessly to ensure we have the best equipment to deliver the highest-quality As-Built plans to our clients. In 2015, Greg added project management to his role as he began working with national brands and organized As-Built Survey programs for large nationwide brands with hundreds of locations. Today, he’s the Director of Special Operations managing large commercial projects and Multi-Site remodel programs throughout the country.

In Greg’s down time, you might find him with a laser scanner in a back pack, on a scooter, surveying city blocks…just for fun.
