Leveraging sustainability and investing in technology has changed how we do business. It has enabled us to become more creative in how we approach our projects, workflow, productivity, and communications, while leaving less of a footprint on our natural resources.
Real-time applications and high-density data collection methods have given us the advantage of visualizing projects by creating digital 3D models early in the design process. This helps reduce conflicts, field derived change orders and lead time constraints allowing for early procurement to alleviate supply chain pressures. It also empowers us to detect and mitigate potential risks by making informed decisions in the field, in real-time.
Here are some examples of technology and methods we are investing in to accelerate our industry:
Revit® Software – Precision 3D models that help the AEC industry streamline documentation with instant revisions while empowering multidisciplinary teams to execute projects with more efficiency by creating data early in the process ahead of construction.
Design-assist – Construction method requiring builder involvement in the design phase from the very beginning of the project’s inception. Design-assist relies on ample communication between the design and construction teams to ensure that project planning accounts for the real-world issues that can arise.
NavVis Interior Mobile Mapping – Wearable, hi-accuracy 3D mobile interior data collection captures a comprehensive and detailed point cloud data set streamlines workflow for the real-world building.
BIM – Building Information Modeling is the foundation of digital transformation in the AEC industry. BIM helps avoid conflicts and constant reworking; reduces project delays; improves building quality; increases profits and mitigates risks.
