VirtualSite is an end-to-end technology solution for rapid Building Information Modelling (BIM) of the built environment. Using an innovative 3D scanning technology (not unlike traditional laser scanning technology such as LIDAR), VirtualSite allows you to capture even large sites within hours. Then using our automated BIM workflows, VirtualSite provides you with processed 2D and 3D scan data for easy integration with your BIM / CAD models.
How does it work?
Virtual Design and Construction Solution
BIM is increasingly becoming the industry standard for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) projects in Australia, putting pressure on service providers to come up with ways to deliver high quality BIM enabled projects cost effectively. See below for how VirtualSite can help with your next BIM project;
Faster BIM for brownfield developments or refurbishments
Capture a brownfield project site in 3D photographic detail for rapid BIM modelling. Ideal for heritage projects or older sites with outdated As-Built documentation.
Enable AEC project teams to perform remote inspections
Securely share access via the cloud based platform for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) teams to perform remote inspections. Ideal for regional development or remote sites to help minimise the number of site inspections required by the AEC design team.
Easy to use virtual design and construction tools
Walk through and inspect a site in detail using the browser based viewer. Scale directly from the model using smart measure tools with intelligent feature point snapping. Measure distance, perimeter and area quickly and access multiple 2D and 3D BIM / CAD supported formats.
Evolving BIM Level of Development standards in Australia (e.g. LOD 500) and the increasing adoption of BIM in the AEC industry continues to put pressure on contractors to deliver highly detailed and accurate BIM models as part of their handover to operations & maintenance teams (O&M). This can be challenging for large complex construction projects which tend to be fast paced and constantly changing, creating potential for changes to be missed from BIM / CAD model updates. By using VirtualSite to periodically scan and document construction progress, contractors are able to cost effectively monitor all changes throughout the construction phase without any risk of delay to the construction schedule. During and after the construction phase is complete, progress scans can be easily accessed and integrated with BIM workflows to ensure minimum LOD standards are met.
Integrate with BIM workflows
Capture all changes on site and easily integrate the data with BIM processes. Automated BIM workflows provide access to multiple point cloud/mesh formats for integrating with your BIM / CAD software of choice including; Revit, Navisworks, AutoCAD, Trimble, Vectorworks, Bluebeam and more.
Share progress updates with AEC project teams
Allow architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) teams to perform remote Quality Assurance (QA) inspections without delay to the construction schedule.
Cloud based for easy sharing and collaboration with partner office
Share access securely with BIM drafting staff and other technical experts from remote partner offices.
Fast and accurate As-built BIM for handover to Facilities Management (FM)
Capture all changes during the construction phase to ensure BIM is accurate and up to date. Cost effectively achieve high LOD 500 standards.
