AR & MR in Construction Industry

Both the planning and execution of the construction industry, as well as the facility management benefit from Augmented Reality by the 3-dimensional presentation of the necessary data via a BIM interface.

Both the planning and execution of the construction industry, as well as the facility management benefit from Augmented Reality by the 3-dimensional presentation of the necessary data via a Building Information Modelling (BIM) interface.

Whether on the construction site or in the office, when viewing construction plans, building files, landscape or city structures, from bird's eye view or in real size: Augmented Reality is able to provide a suitable overview, no matter if you just use it for planning further processes or for a target-actual comparison directly on site, or also together in a meeting room to discuss certain parameters.

Planning participants can use the technology in meetings to their advantage to improve communication and understanding of the current project. While the comprehensive overview of a three-dimensional visualization provides you a greater grasp, interactive features can also help to share what you want to discuss, to make changes, or to take a closer look at more detailed structures.

Our CAD-Viewer Holo-View has proven to accelerate corresponding work processes by more than 10%.

As this type of visualization also allows people from other locations to connect and view them, these AR solutions also strengthen collaboration with partners, colleagues, construction managers on site, or other departments.

At the construction site, Augmented Reality helps to keep an eye on the current status of the construction project. Digital overlays enable a constant comparison of the finished, digital object with the current state of construction. Deviations or potential problems can be detected early on and corrected accordingly.

But AR can also be used as support in facility management.

Maintenance- and safety-relevant building equipment like e.g. fire dampers, fire detectors, and more could be visualized as holographic 3D content.

Also the cleaning personnel could have relevant cleaning surfaces/areas visualized on basis of service-level agreements (SLA’s). Depending on the SLA or the application technology in the cleaning process, you could have the relevant surfaces be shown in different colors.

Because visualization of BIM data in many cases has very high detail accuracy and therefore forms large files, a technology called Remote Rendering combined with AR can help maintain this level of accuracy also on AR devices. Since the processors of smartphones, tablets or smartglasses have only limited performance, Remote Rendering can be used to outsource their computing power to external sources, such as a server.

The Remote Rendering method developed by Holo-Light allows AR-enabled devices to display files that are up to 50x larger than the files that can typically be viewed on these devices.
