AR 3D BIM allows construction professionals to see ‘beyond the wall’

The BIM files @ CIT Blaton – embracing 3D BIM visualisation

By Vincent Didriche, Head of Service Engineering at CIT Blaton

Seeing beyond the wall with the power of augmented reality – how CIT Blaton is looking to embrace the power of 3D BIM visualisation

“The BIM schism in the Belgian market is moving slow, but it’s moving, nonetheless. CIT Blaton stands for pragmatic evolution, and we plan to leverage AR technology as a way forward and upward within a more comprehensive long-term construction vision.” 

– Rémy Robijns, Head of Service QSE @ CIT Blaton

Hannover Messe – how we create today’s AR construction tech with tomorrow’s pioneers

By Philippe Carême, CEO @ GenieVision

GenieVision was founded on the idea that technology could help the construction industry do things better, faster, and at less cost. We were right. Our customers and their applications have taught us many lessons that have improved how we develop and deliver our technology. But you don’t move forward if you keep talking to the same people, attending the same events, and meeting with the same partners over and over.

How Hannover Messe learnings will help us create the construction AR industry of tomorrow with today’s industrial pioneers?

Digital Construction Week 2022 recap – use case comes first, tech second

by GenieVision Product Manager, François Snoeck

The GenieVision team and I were fortunate enough to exhibit at this year’s Digital Construction Week event, where we showcased our innovative smARt Viewer technology to a packed-out audience. Our powerful AR technology – which visualises a 3D BIM on a portable screen so construction professionals can run a quality check against an accurate ‘digital twin’ of their construction site – was certainly turning heads at this year’s event.

This annual show brought thousands of people together to learn more about the latest innovations in the construction industry and place a spotlight on those technologies that are addressing the industry’s most pressing challenges. The evolution of BIM and IM were key themes for this year’s event, which is especially topical when you consider that BIM is often underestimated or not used to its full potential.

Transposing construction site information and keeping it in a digital value chain

BIM file series @ SGI

By Thomas Eglinger, BIM manager at SGI


For more than 50 years, SGI Ingénierie SA Luxembourg has been active in the field of engineering: building structures, technical engineering, infrastructures, engineering structures, construction management, health and safety coordination, and project management. The company employs a hundred of people, each tasked with ensuring the success of its clients’ projects – from design mission to field supervision.

For this new contribution in our ongoing blog series entitled “The BIM Files @…” we asked Thomas Eglinger, BIM Manager at SGI, a multidisciplinary European engineering group based in Luxembourg, to share how his firm used BIM technology to track back so they could build forward.

smARt Viewer at Digital Construction Week London : AR for 3D BIM

GenieVision, a leading developer of AR construction technology, will showcase its smARt Viewer at the upcoming Digital Construction Week, 18-19 May 2022 at ExCeL, London. The GenieVision solution brings the BIM digital twin to life on site by means of an AR app on a mobile device, allowing users to detect, report, and fix construction flaws before they become major failures.

On May 18th, 2022 at 12.30pm, François Snoeck, Product Manager at GenieVision, will host a presentation on the Tech Stage entitled “Can one smARt 3D BIM visualiser really get you those smart savings?”, during which he will illustrate how this innovative solution will save time and money for everyone involved in the construction process. Visitors who are not able to make it to his session will still have the opportunity to get a live demo in the GenieVision stand DC70 throughout the London Digital Construction Week.

The digital twin: vision, actors and digital divide

The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions was a central theme for the most recent BIM WORLD 2022. Gains in time, performance, and communication were also key topics for discussion at the event that brings together professionals active in the entire life cycle of a construction project and considers challenges of digitalisation in the construction chain.

The latest developments in digital innovation and sustainability were explored too. GenieVision took the opportunity to understand the visions of builders, and their current problems, among which is the digital divide on the construction site.

In this article, we will discuss the planning, execution, management, operation and maintenance aspects of BIM. We will explore how its usefulness depends on a digital twin – a digital version of the planned project that is faithful to the reality on the ground. The more up-to-date it is, the greater its value. A real-time 3D model allows collaboration on this digital twin and ensures all the BIM gains are made.
