Aligning construction layout and verification
The Leica iCON field software version 6.0 is the new field software for the building construction industry. It is designed to meet the needs of general contractors, concrete contractors, MEP and HVAC trades, and BIM/VDC departments, with simple, trustworthy, and easy to implement technology that enables the verification of built parts in a building construction project.
The new Leica iCON field v6.0 and verification app allow contractors to extend their possibilities using multiple integrated sensors, allowing for easier, more complete and real-time verification on site. Out of tolerance areas are immediately available for layout, for quick decision making and corrective measures to reduce unnecessary rework at later stages of the project.
CAD & BIM-to-Field
Using the right digital solutions to transfer the design data from the office to the field accurately and in real-time reduces rework, waste, and delays on construction sites. Office-Field integration with software and sensor solutions not only reduces the efforts for point layout creation in the office but also boosts productivity and quality in the field with a constant feedback loop. The construction-centric BIM-to-Field workflows supported by iCON solutions, ensure connectivity with all leading CAD and BIM software and all industry-standard file format.
Construction Verification of As-built with CAD & BIM Model
Time pressure, constant revisions, or redesigns can make it hard to validate if everything has been built according to the latest design. Therefore, deviations between design and as-built are often identified too late and lead to rework, waste, and costly delay. Our reality capture sensor and software solutions enable fast and easy to use as-built verification for flatness analysis or positioning verification directly in the field. Creating a constant feedback loop between as-built and design helps to discover issues early and reduces the risk of delays. Our best in class sensor and software solutions are seamlessly integrated into all industry-leading CAD and BIM software.
Beginning construction on the jobsite requires a good understanding of the site’s topography to efficiently prepare the grounds for excavation, trenching, and creating the base for the structural foundation. Using the right surveying, utility detection, machine control, and alignment tools increase productivity and safety on site. Office-Field integration with software and sensors allows you to transfer design data through machine control systems for smooth earthmoving navigation that prevents re-work, disruption, and harm. Upgradeable rotating lasers adapt to application requirements to optimize the jobsite levelling, aligning, and squaring tasks, which are critical for the preparation of the jobsite. We provide essential solutions to measure, detect, level for effective jobsite preparation.
Building structures, whether concrete, steel or woodframed, are critical-path items that must be built to exacting tolerances. Using the right layout and verification sensors and software solutions improve productivity and quality on construction site and reduce delays and waste. Our iCON solutions enable construction professionals to layout and validate the position of structural foundations, steel elements and structural embeds in a more accurate and productive way. The construction-centric BIM-to-Field workflows supported by iCON solutions, ensure connectivity with the latest design and support all industry-standard file format. Our rotation lasers and reality capture sensor and software solutions enable fast and easy to use as-built verification for flatness analysis or positioning verification directly in the field. We provide all essential sensor and software solutions to measure, layout, validate, and align building structures while ensuring connectivity between the field and office teams.
Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) contractors have the challenge to make sure all the detailing, installation and fabrication tasks are coordinated with the consultant’s design intent and the often-changing site conditions. Having the right digital layout sensor and software solutions are crucial to layout points for MEP installations on site. The construction-centric BIM-to-Field workflows supported by iCON solutions, ensure connectivity between the design team in the office and in the field. The iCON solutions increase layout productivity and make QA/QC for layout points an easy task. Our best in class sensor and software solutions are seamlessly integrated into all industry-leading CAD, BIM and detailing software solutions.
Interior partition walls, ceilings, MEP, tiles and other installations require accurate digital tools to position, measure, align and validate on-site installations. To avoid re-work and delay digital sensor and software solutions enable accurate layout positioning and alignment of interior installations. The construction-centric BIM-to-Field workflows supported by iCON solutions, ensure connectivity with the latest design and supports all industry-standard file format. Our reality capture sensor and software solutions enable fast and easy to use as-built positioning verification directly in the field. Creating a constant feedback loop between as-built and design helps to discover issues earlier and reduces the risk of delays.
Change orders, design changes and other factors can make it challenging to hand over accurate and up-to-date as-built documentation of a building. Using the right methodology to capture and document as-built conditions and changes during construction can be a big-time saver and is the key to handover accurate as-built models and drawings. Our reality capture sensor and software solutions make capturing as-built conditions fast and easy for everyone. Multivista – our cloud-based visual construction progress documentation services – captures the perfect as-built documentation for building contractors and owners.
Construction Documentation Services
Locating critical building objects once they are covered with concrete or hidden behind walls or suspended ceilings is a challenge and can become time-consuming and costly. Using the right documentation solutions during construction provides accurate as-built documentation and saves time and money. Multivista cloud-based visual construction documentation services give your team instant access to a complete as-built record with location and time stamp information. Measurable 3D images will not only capture critical systems that will be covered but will also generate precise measurements that can answer future questions and avoid destructive discovery long after construction has ended.
Real-Time Visual Construction Data
Understanding construction progress, verifying schedules, assess quality and identifying project delays are important to take the right decisions and deliver project on time and budget. Instant access to the most up-to-date construction project information enables real-time decision-making – from prompt assessments of quality, progress, and overall performance to risk detection and mitigation – allowing project executives and managers to confidently meet or exceed planned expectations. OxBlue’s high definition time-lapse photography and live video streaming services deliver real-time visual documentation of everything that happens on a job site, both exterior and interior. Combining the latest camera technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning algorithms, provide the required insights to keep everyone informed about project status, critical milestones, and other key information, including weather conditions, ensures projects stay on schedule and under budget.
Digital Templating – Capture Relevant As-Built dimensions
Whether you are templating countertops, wood, glass, or steel, you don’t need traditional templates anymore. You can capture the relevant dimensions accurately and have the digital templates programming your CNC machinery. Using our digital templating solutions, you reduce the manual efforts in the field, have accurate drawings to send to customers for sign-offs, and with the increased accuracy, you reduce the waste or rework of expensive material.
