Regional leader DMK Associates Inc. chooses a Leica Geosystems ScanStation C5 scanner to equip Southwest Florida’s first permanently-based laser scanning crew.
(Norcross, Ga./Heerbrugg, 2 July 2012) – DMK Associates, Inc., a 28-person full-service consulting firm serving counties and municipalities in Southwest Florida, recently established the region’s first dedicated laser scanning crew and chose the Leica ScanStation C5 laser scanner for daily operations. “The ScanStation C5 was a good fit for us,” said DMK President and CEO Karl Kokomoor, PE, “It’s a great value as is, we’re very comfortable with Leica Geosystems’ rugged equipment, and the ScanStation C5 can be upgraded when we need more capacity—it was the best choice for us and is really working out well.”
Kokomoor says that the local offices of some national consulting firms have been using laser scanners for a few years. “But we’re the first to establish a field crew and full office capacity to process point clouds into the models and data that our clients need. Cities and other clients are beginning to ask for scanned data, and it was important to us to stay ahead of the market.”
