This paper summarizes work at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the Non-Intrusive Scanning Technologies for Construction Assessment Project. It will briefly describe the initial proof-of-concept phase of this project, the extension of the procedures and methods developed in the initial phase for an indoor environment to an outdoor, uncontrolled environment - a construction site, and future work planned are discussed.
