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.

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.

BIM World 2022 – Augmented Reality for Construction

Augmented Reality (AR) for 3D BIM : GenieVision presents smARt Viewer app for construction

BIM World 2022

GenieVison, a leading developer of AR construction technology, will showcase its smARt Viewer at the upcoming BIM World, taking place in Paris on April 5-6.

GenieVision’s solution enables all construction professionals to benchmark the on-site reality against the 3D BIM.

The AR mobile app brings the BIM digital twin to life on-site through an AR app on a mobile device, allowing users to detect, report, and fix construction flaws before they become major failures. This innovative AR for 3D BIM technology that saves time and money throughout construction project phases will be on demo in the GenieVision stand A26.

A smARt viewer to watch the 3D BIM on-site

BIM file series @ STRABAG

By Frits Bonte, Digital Process Manager at STRABAG

 

STRABAG is a European technology partner for construction services, leading in innovation and capital strength. Their offer includes all areas of the construction industry and covers the entire construction value chain. They bring people, building materials, and equipment to the right place at the right time. As a result, they are familiar with various technologies that support all areas of the construction industry.

At the Digital Construction Day conference in Brussels, the presentation of Frits Bonte focused on the growing use of Augmented Reality for BIM in construction projects. We asked Frits to share with GenieVision a summary of the power of AR in construction projects, some caution notes, and why AR for BIM is the central smARt construction technology users need to be thinking about. Now and in the future.

5 questions on smARt construction innovation to watch

Traditionally, the construction industry was perceived to be slow in adopting the digital technologies needed to achieve higher productivity. But today, as the industry faces new budget, regulatory, and time pressures, the use of digital technology is no longer optional – it’s a requirement.

Facilitating that move to technology is speeded up by visionary organisations, like PropTech Lab. This community of innovators focuses on creating awareness, fostering innovations, and empowering the real estate and construction sectors to act now for everyone’s tomorrow.

Recently, GenieVision co-hosted a webinar with PropTech Lab and its CEO, Noémie de Crombrugghe. The C-level insights she shared into how today’s construction technology innovations shape tomorrow’s properties and real estate markets were too valuable to not be elaborated on. So, we asked her to delve a little deeper.
