Augmented reality (AR) is a type of technology that provides utility by adding digital images and information to a user’s view of the real world. You can access AR through common digital devices like smartphones and tablets as well as through dedicated AR devices like headsets. Because augmented reality has the ability to enhance the […]

If you stay up-to-date with industry innovations, you may have heard some exciting claims about augmented reality in the construction industry. Proponents of AR suggest that this technology can streamline workflows, minimize rework and increase overall productivity. However, because augmented reality and similar systems like virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) are still in […]

Since manufacturers and construction professionals began using 3D CAD in the 1990s, virtual design technology has played a key role in the construction industry’s development. In recent years, new systems and processes have transformed the way construction professionals plan building projects. Two of the most influential innovations — Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building […]

Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is now a staple of the construction industry, offering benefits to general contractors every day. As the technology evolves, these benefits continue to increase, helping contractors and subcontractors improve productivity and efficiency significantly. The Benefits of BIM for Contractors BIM technology, with its myriad functions and capabilities, has allowed general […]

With Building Information Modeling (BIM), companies can more quickly focus on the important tasks ahead. However, making the most of a BIM takes a bit of effort on the part of the company, especially when it comes to redundant work processes. Here is how to use BIM correctly. The Essential Ways to Streamline Processes Minimizing […]

Some contractors may discover building information modeling (BIM) problems when they first start using the program. They might find that the BIM models do not look right, or that contractors are not interpreting them correctly. Most of these BIM problems stem from very fundamental issues of misunderstanding. Consultant Misunderstanding: It is often difficult to get […]

It’s a frequent question among industry veterans. Do you need to model a point cloud? The answer varies, as it depends on your goals and the parameters of your project. In most cases, however, scanning to BIM — or Building Information Modeling — benefits your work. It delivers a real-world model that’s accurate, which helps architects […]

A growing trend in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Owner-Operated (AECO) industry are classification codes, which are becoming a core feature and reference point in BIM, or Building Information Modeling. Why? Their proven benefits, which range from fewer errors to improved cost predictability. That’s why classification codes are becoming necessary for BIM, especially with the […]

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process used for collaborating on digital building designs according to a coherent model, as opposed to a collection of separate ideas. In the broader range of commercial and industrial applications, the word “building” is used as a synonym for civil engineering. BIM has been described by the National Institute […]
