GIS and BIM Integration

Merging Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information System (GIS) data provides a geo-spatial element that can be used especially for infrastructure design, allowing for more efficient workflows and consistent data.  This initiative came from the knowledge that the AEC industry has been facing a real challenge. How to solve the issue of lost data between stages of a […]

The role of Artificial intelligence (AI) in BIM

BIM is mainly a digital description of all aspects of a construction project. BIM is expanding its use in the Architectural and Construction (AEC) industry either because of public administration increasing requiring project documentation in BIM format or by industry leader implementing the most innovative solution available to improve productive and efficiency. A BIM 3D […]

Using Drones to leverage BIM

The construction industry was among the first to adopt drone photography, and they continue to drive innovation with new use cases. In addition to performing fly-overs and site surveys, UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) photogrammetry software can be used to accurately measure distance, elevation, and volume, such as the volume of soil moved during an earthworks […]

Start-ups disrupting the Architecture and Construction industry

As much as BIM is a reality for the architecture and construction industry, Artificial intelligence (AI) uses for the industry is becoming a reality as well. Combining BIM and AI will bring unprecedented productive and competitive advantages. Spacemaker Spacemaker has developed a game-changing AI technology that helps users discover smarter ways to maximize the potential […]

HoloLens 2 the next step

One of the first ‘working-in-the-field’ customizations of Microsoft’s newly unveiled HoloLens 2 mixed-reality headset is a hard hat by Trimble for construction workers that pulls up holographic CAD data on the worksite. “It will have all of the same specs, performance, and functionality as the new HoloLens, including improved sensors and processors, a significantly larger […]
