Kelly Cone

Kelly is going to lead workshop 3 on Reality Capture with Laser Scanning. This class will delve into the world of point cloud data processing. A number of the recent scan to BIM projects will be presented and discussed. We’ll play with some scan data (surveyed at UPV) and attendees will gain an insight into practical modelling procedures for as-built projects and experience semi-automated Scan-to-BIM software.

I am passionate about process and technology innovation and how they can change industries and people’s lives. My education is in architectural design and documentation, but my experience within the AEC space is far more varied.

I have implemented various practice technologies into design, estimating, and construction teams and workflows; worked on amazing projects such as the SaRang Global Ministry center in Seoul as a designer, and Renzo Piano’s addition to the Louis Kahn Kimbell Art Museum as a contractor; and have had the privilege of growing and leading one of the most talented VDC & Process Innovation teams in the industry.

Those experiences have taught me there is a better way to create our built environment, and I want to make that way become a reality. As a first step in that journey, I have joined ClearEdge3D to help them develop the tools necessary for design and construction firms to get the most out of reality capture within the AEC industry, with the goal of closing the gap between the virtual and real world.
