Managing Construction of New Workspace with Digital Twin Models & AI
10:30 AM - 10:45 AM
The talk -presented in form of a panel- focuses on sharing lessons learned by OAC Services from using Reconstruct with Revit and Navisworks to simultaneously track construction of 3 million square feet of new workspace on 72 acres of land. Drones and 360 cameras were used to capture progress in and out of each of the 18 building projects. Reconstruct was used as a visual command center to integrate and align each reality model with its corresponding BIM and project schedule and tie-in all resulting digital twins to offer stakeholders on and offsite, with an indoor/outdoor 3D timeline on all projects. Instant visual insights from 360 videos guided the project team's efforts in reviewing work against 4D BIM and provided owner representatives with transparency on progress and quality before they impacted cost and schedule. Reconstruct also allowed each field team to progress their schedule directly from the jobsite and leverage actionable productivity and schedule risk insights to verify and coordinate schedule performance, while feeding that information up to the executive level. An owners perspective on benefits of the visual progress monitoring tool will be discussed in detail.
