Laser Scanning Services
L.I. Smith's FARO Focus3D X 330 is the leading tool for surveying and 3D documentation. It collects up to one million points-per-second to produce a very dense and accurate collage of individual measurements known as a “point cloud” with a positional accuracy of +2mm. The FARO Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away. Processing of the data produces a highly accurate 2D or 3D CAD model of as-built or existing conditions.
L.I. Smith & Associates scanning services can be utilized for a wide variety of uses including:

Terminal & Landside Area Programming and Initial Design
Metropolitan Nashville International Airport (BNA)
L.I. Smith & Associates, Inc. provided surveying services as a sub-consultant to Corgan & Associates, Inc. during the Programming and Initial Design of the Terminal and Landside Area Project. Overall services included existing conditions surveys, assessments, and data gathering.
Phase II of the project included providing field surveying, expanding the BNA Control Network to Landside, and providing topographic field surveys of areas that were deficient in current survey data. Phase III included 3D scanning, registering, and geo-referencing point clouds of both the interiors and exteriors of the Terminal, Concourse B, Concourse D, and Short Term Garage. The FARO Focus3D X 330 was utilized for this project producing approximately 2,914 scans.
Tennessee's Eiffel Tower Landmark
Memorial Park, Paris, Tennessee
Tennessee's Eiffel Tower is a landmark in the city of Paris, Tennessee. Built in the early 1990s this structure is a model of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The tower’s design was based on the original drawings of Gustave Eiffel. Standing at 60 feet (18 m) tall, the tower is a nearly perfect 1:20 scale replica of the original.
The tower was initially designed and constructed through the labor of more than 10,000 hours donated by Christian Brothers University students, faculty, alumni, and friends. It was donated to the City of Paris in February 1992 and reassembled by the Paris Public Works Department. A dedication ceremony took place on January 29, 1993 in recognition of the landmark.
ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey - Jonny's Sports Bar
Nolensville Pike, Nashville, TN
L.I. Smith & Associates, Inc. provided an ALTA Survey with topographical survey data of existing site conditions at the Jonny’s Sports Bar parcel on Nolensville Pike in Nashville, TN.
L.I. Smith surveyors utilized the FARO Focus3D X 330 to provide an existing conditions survey of the lot and building structures. Utilizing the 3D Laser Scanner allowed for highly accurate deliverables to be provided within a short time-frame.
Quarry Quantity Surveys, Bradford, Tennessee
Kentucky-Tennessee Clay Company
L.I. Smith & Associates, Inc. was contracted by the Kentucky-Tennessee Clay Company to provide topographic survey and quantities for this project in Bradford, Tennessee.
We shot the original ground with a conventional survey field crew and a total station. For the final surface we used the FARO Focus3D X 330 scanner and georeferenced control to acquire the data. The Trimble Business Center (TBC) was then used to compare the two surfaces (before and after excavation) to provide the quantities.
