Dealing with the Concrete 'Crisis': Leveraging Point Cloud in CAD for Surface Deviation Analysis

In the wake of a concrete 'crisis' affecting existing buildings, such as many schools in the UK constructed with Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC), the need for precise assessment and remediation strategies has never been more critical. Integrated into CAD software, point cloud technology becomes valuable for addressing surface deviation concerns in RAAC structures.
