Bring the 3D BIM on-site and boost coordination

GenieVision focuses on the reduction of failure costs for construction compagnies using BIM

GenieVision, as a software company, has made a new tool that takes advantage of advanced mobile technologies to bring the 3D construction models to smartphones.

For years architects, designers and engineers have been working with 3D models of large and complex buildings on computers from remote office facilities – which are sometimes far from the job site. Yet, these models never made it into the hands of the workers actually working on the building. Most of the time they still use outdated 2D paper plans. This means that management needs to make trips to the job site whenever they run into errors or mistakes, to verify plans against reality, a process that is inefficient and costly.

More than an application, a software built on-site

Several European studies say that in average between 7% and 12% of construction costs are related to issues and errors on the job site.

GenieVision has created an entire flow experience from the original 3D model to the smartphone or tablet.

The application allows a 3D Augmented Reality overlay to be displayed simply and accurately on the reality, using a mobile device. The challenge: to bring BIM to the construction site! Touching a space on the real floor on the job site opens a corresponding 3D model spot with a centimetric positioning accuracy.

Through the augmented reality, all job site stakeholders can use the 3D designs proactively, to raise effectiveness and reduce on-site issues and mistakes. Check out here four smart digital moves to get smart savings in 2021.

The Application has been designed so that it can run from any recent smartphone and tablet. The software takes advantage of the latest technologies in 3D space positioning with a special homemade rendering.

Build right the first time

GenieVision enables stakeholders to find the right 3D model with precision, easily and intuitively. The objective: speed up the checking and verification of structure, HVAC, plumbing, and other installations and related work. With our technology, teams improve their work and make sure they are putting their equipment in the correct spot. Working with Genie software helps to make that placement crystal clear. Build right the first time!

Our video game-like software makes it easy for all involved parties. Operators do not need to be tech savvy to use our software, it facilitates the 3D models experience with on-site automated positioning. Due to our cloud infrastructure, designers and engineers receive an immediate feedback from the job site on issues or errors through alerts or reports. All involved parties on the job site receive the right feedback, and consequently, appropriate actions can be taken more quickly, pushed directly from 3D designer’s office.

With GenieVision, construction compagnies can significantly reduce their job site failure costs, with more “a priori” verifications and thereby increase the pace of construction planning.

GenieVision’s goal is to produce real-time reports with the most important errors that have been detected earlier, and then support our clients by implementing changes in their construction processes, including contractors and sub-contractors, and therefore increasing their margin on each construction project.

GenieVision’s great qualities and strengths in a few points

  • The ease with which the 3D model can be aligned with its reality. A process patented
  • The ability to save this alignment and make it available to other users
  • The ergonomics of the application – simple, easy and reliable
  • The process of transforming the data from the 3D model to AR. We avoid the complexity and weight of the model
  • The architecture of the solution is open and connectable to the environment of our customers
