Residential & commercial building documentation

Generating 2D and 3D documentation of residential and commercial buildings requires fast, accurate and up-to-date information about a site. Access to the status quo of a site is vital throughout the project lifecycle, from planning, to active construction, to completion and thereafter. Reality capture technology enables this flexibility and eliminates the risks associated with outdated documents, photos and manual measurements. SLAM-based laser scanning speeds up the documentation of site conditions, enabling more frequents scans, captured accurately for more reliable scan-to-BIM and scan-to-CAD workflows.

Reality capture platforms such as NavVis IVION, provide a direct connection between the location and the information on site and includes integrations with commonly used software such as Autodesk Revit. Users can leverage time and resource-saving features in NavVis IVION by downloading only the desired point cloud sections they want to work with, and having access to high resolution panoramic imagery for modeling and plan generation in 3rd party software.

Site assessment

Site assessment is essential for project development and planning, involving the evaluation of site conditions, understanding its surroundings, assessing existing structures and infrastructure, environmental investigation, regulatory compliance review, researching site history and land use, and engaging with local stakeholders. It plays a crucial role in renovation and brownfield projects by identifying risks early on. Additionally, it enables accurate cost estimation by considering challenges and regulatory compliance expenses.

Multiple site visits by different engineers and architects are required to comprehensively assess the status quo of a site, which can stretch the budget and timeline while risking missed information and misinterpreted structures. NavVis IVION offers an easily accessible platform that provides up-to-date geometrical and visual information about the site for all team members at all times, enabling a holistic understanding of the site and assessment of its conditions.



construction-verification-use-case-construction-page

Construction verification

Reality capture data is used to efficiently monitor and verify the execution of construction projects throughout the construction phase. From early risk detection to budget and timing control, it provides a solution to a number of challenges such as potential rework, budget constraints, and complexity restrictions. Data generated from SLAM-based laser scanning systems enables stakeholders to compare 2D and 3D plans and/or models with up-to-date, accurate point cloud data and high-definition panoramic imagery.

Reality capture platforms form a single source of truth for your as-built documentation processes, providing a direct link between location and information. Issues can be flagged and progress can be monitored to ensure correct project execution and early deficiency detection. Information can be seamlessly shared with contractors and stakeholders across your wider project network.

Collaboration, visualization and site visits

Transparency across the board is key in any construction project. Lack of reliable information about the status quo of a project and poor communication on such complex projects can stall effective collaboration and drastically increase the risk of potential rework and unnecessary resource expenditure that could have been avoided. NavVis IVION enables multiple stakeholders to swiftly and securely access, visualize, and manage up-to-date site information from their web browser.

This empowers a network of teams and individual stakeholders to make informed decisions about the status quo of a site at any point during the project by providing them with detailed, accurate information that is easily and efficiently accessible.

Renovation planning

From improving the energy efficiency of a building structure to repairing materials and structures to prolonging the lifecycle of the existing asset, planning a renovation project is a complex task. Renovation planning currently faces higher project risks due to heightened complexity and lack of up-to-date information about the actual conditions of a site, even before planning starts. This can lead to unreliable deficit estimations and uninformed decisions putting a project at risk of costly rework.

Budget and time restrictions associated with visiting renovation sites can also lead to stakeholders relying on outdated documents and second hand information to make important decisions and risk calculations. From scanning the site to status quo assessment and high-level design concepts, reality capture technology provides renovation project stakeholders with up-to-date, accurate data of a site for optimal planning and information sharing.

Bidding

Contractors aim to secure contracts by demonstrating their ability to complete projects within budget, on time, and meeting client requirements. However, they encounter challenges such as strong competition, resource-intensive bid preparation, difficulties in collecting accurate subcontractor offers, and the risk of underbidding. Inaccurate bids often stem from uncertainties and limited knowledge about initial project conditions.

By implementing innovative reality capture solutions such as NavVis, contractors can gain a competitive advantage through the adoption of new technologies, leading to increased project wins. NavVis IVION enables seamless visualization of panoramic imagery and point clouds, empowering multiple different stakeholders and subcontractors to easily access, and download data about the initial project conditions, ultimately leading to more accurate and successful bids.

Preservation, monitoring & claim management

In construction projects, the main goal is to successfully complete the work in accordance with the terms outlined in the contract. This involves protecting specified items such as historical buildings, existing infrastructure, and third-party properties from any potential damage during the construction phase. Contractors are responsible for overseeing their own work and that of subcontractors, implementing measures to prevent harm to these structures, and preserving evidence or documentation related to the site's condition before, during, and after construction. These evidence preservation measures aim to safeguard against disputes and legal issues by accurately documenting existing conditions and any changes during the construction process.

However challenges often arise due to insufficient coordination among stakeholders, inadequate documentation of progress, and a lack of monitoring of construction activities. NavVis offers a solution that enables professionals to document the entire construction process, providing access to reliable, up-to-date reality capture data for planning purposes, facilitating communication among stakeholders to ensure compliance with contractual conditions and efficient project completion.

Demolition planning

Demolition planning involves the preparation of execution plans for deconstructing a structure in compliance with environmental and safety regulations. This includes considering factors such as avoiding damage to neighboring buildings and public infrastructure, as well as removing hazardous materials like asbestos with specific techniques. Lack of reliable information about existing site conditions can lead to poor planning and unforeseen problems during execution.

Reality capture technologies such as NavVis enable stakeholders to efficiently and accurately capture, visualize, and share existing site conditions, improving planning and coordination amongst project stakeholders.

White paperRetrofitting and renovations: How tech can reduce the environmental impact of construction

With governments around the world set to impose tighter restrictions on all industries, buildings will require adaptations to improve their energy efficiency. To address the environmental impact of construction, there is a growing trend for retrofitting and renovation to effectively upgrade older structures rather than demolishing them in favor of building new shells.
