Leica’s BLK360 Takes the Heavy Lifting Out of Commercial Architecture and Design.
After a decade of working in events and experiential marketing and consistently coming up against incorrect venue plans and technical drawings, Dave Johnstone knew there must be an easier way.

Laser scanning technologies have improved the way measurements are taken and allows businesses to build, upgrade, and create new services derived from their capabilities.
New technology is one of the driving forces behind industry progress, but limited access and availability can often stand in the way of that technology reaching its full potential and capacity for real change. For this reason, democratizing exclusive technology and its deliverables has become a way for businesses to lead their fields and have meaningful impact, transforming the way entire industries operate.
