The importance of computer vision and AI for BIM leaders

At Constru, we focus on identifying and solving customer pain points.

My role as BIM Leader Constru puts me at the heart of many exciting construction projects around the globe. While I see amazing innovations from our customers, I also see many shared pain points, generally related to a lack of leveraging data and technology at scale. Common issues such as time wasted on manual processes to track work progress, confusion and arguments with subcontractors on updated completion status for payments streamlining, failure to identify discrepancies, and improper tracking of materials. 
In my experience, design teams are often the first to adopt new technology for innovation, while the construction team lags behind. While this has impacted business in the past, it hurts more than ever as profit margins decline due to cost increases and labor shortages. That being said, I do see more and more contractors taking the step of integrating #BIM into their processes. Typically starting with 3D views and #coordination, then progressing to quantities and material tracking and finally #VDC and scheduling for the more advanced teams.
At Constru, we focus on identifying and solving customer pain points. We leverage #computervision and #AI algorithms to create a #digitaltwin that tracks work and automatically updates progress to easily map actual project status vs. planned work. By enabling customers to combine their BIM models and Schedule, and integrate with leading platforms such as  Procore, Oracle P6, and other industry-standard scheduling tools.  We are able to drastically improve project efficiency and quality while reducing overall cost.

Another major benefit of leveraging BIM and Constru is automated discrepancy detection. By tracking over 250 elements and comparing the BIM model to actual work, we are able to quickly detect discrepancies and alert customers of them before requiring costly and time-consuming rework to be done.
