To follow on from our previous articles where we explained what Augmented Reality (AR) is, the the benefits of implementing Augmented Reality into the Construction Industry, and what you need to consider when choosing Augmented Reality for Construction. This article will share how AR can support you when conducting Visual Inspections by answering the following questions: Are you enhancing your inspections with Augmented Reality? And How can we provide you with data-rich Augmented Reality applications? Keep reading to find out how you can implement AR today to help you #ONEUPYOURBUSINESS!

ARE YOU ENHANCING YOUR INSPECTIONS WITH AUGMENTED REALITY?

After reading our previous article, AR for Construction, you've discovered in great detail the benefits of implementing AR into the Construction Industry and how it can streamline your operations.

One of the advantages we discussed is how you can conduct inspections much more efficiently and safely with Augmented Reality (AR) support. Gone will be the days of carrying notes, reading through paper manuals, printing off information, relying on your memory, and so on. One simple act of pointing a camera to an object with a marker will provide you with all the information you need.

It comes as no surprise then that with the incorporation of extra additional data layers to your AR applications, the more data-rich they will be to support you in the following ways:

  • Making better-informed decisions
  • Taking photos/ videos on demand
  • Improving collaboration
  • Providing sharing information capabilities
  • Making accurate measurements
  • Reducing human error
  • Increased safety
  • Enabling equipment and site-monitoring and tracking
  • Tracking and comparing progress against 3D BIM models
  • Reducing costs

Therefore, the more information you incorporate into your AR applications, the more immersive the AR experience will be. You can click here to read more about the purposes and benefits you'll receive for implementing AR into the Construction Industry.

HOW CAN WE PROVIDE YOU WITH DATA-RICH AUGMENTED REALITY APPLICATIONS?

AR is changing the way the Construction Industry operates, and we understand you need data-rich AR applications to enhance your user experience. With over 23 years of working across multiple sectors with an award-winning Software Development powerhouse, we utilise cutting-edge technology in the most innovative way possible to make sure we can deliver to you all the information layers you could ever possibly need. Here, we list how we can streamline your operations with our solutions that can be tailored to suit your requirements as well as the benefits we offer:

TURNING YOUR IDEAS INTO REALITY

Working closely with you and your team from day one, we can take the ideas you have and transform them into a reality. Easing the creative process on your behalf, we will capture your initial ideas and process them into a CAD drawing, in which we can work to very tight and controlled tolerances. The CAD drawings will be transformed into highly detailed and accurate 3D MESH Models and rendered to turn your ideas into Augmented Reality visualisations.

FULL BIM INTEGRATION

If you're a construction company working on government projects, it is mandatory to adopt Building Information Model (BIM) Level 2. We are one of the advocate companies in the UK that promote and facilitates the adoption of BIM, especially level 2 and level 3. Our outputs are fully compatible with all BIM suites (Autocad Revit, ArchiCad, etc.) and integrated with them. So, regardless if we're taking your ideas from scratch and producing 3D representations of your assets to ease Augmented Reality visualisations, all our AR solutions can be tailored to facilitate the adoption and use of BIM.

FULLY COMPLIANT WITH HEALTH AND SAFETY

By implementing Augmented Reality into your business applications, your clients and customers will have an enriched experience when interacting with your products or premises without physically having to touch the product or object.

We understand the vitality of health and safety, especially in a post-pandemic world. Augmented Reality helps in preventing cross-contamination and improving social distancing and hygiene. When providing you with on-site support, we also abide by strict health and safety policies, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

DATA-RICH EXPERIENCE

As we utilise specialist equipment like drones and thermal cameras, 3D and visualisations, photography and videography, we can offer you additional solutions for you to enhance your AR applications as we can embed other data such as:

  • Reports from technical inspections: With the use of our fixed-wing and multi-rotor drones, we can conduct technical inspections and embed the reports, documents, and external links into your AR applications. For example, we can produce thorough thermal efficiency reports of your assets using our thermal imaging cameras either handheld or attached to drones
  • CAD floor plans: We can extract your project's floor plans and export them to CAD formats. Floorplans can help inspectors, manger, clients to understand the space and layout
  • Images and video: We can implement stunning footage with drones, offering your customers and clients data-rich experiences. We provide a range of visual information that you can implement, such as 4K anamorphic videos, aquatic filming, aerial filming, 360-degree video with aerial drones

Incorporating a range of additional data provides immersive and data-rich experiences to your inspections, clients and workers that will help to maximise your productivity and efficiency, all while being fully compliant with social distancing.
