                    [post_content] => Drones have a rapidly growing presence at construction sites where they help verify that work has been performed properly, on time, on schedule and according to plan while reducing the subjective manual data.

But a big problem that has arisen from the onslaught of drones is how can general contractors or property owners use drones to add value to what really matters – better monitoring and managing their projects and actually get useful insights out of the drone flights?

Drones that just fly high over job sites are limited with their ability to capture the entire site, and imagery taken by workers from ground level are usually out of context and hard to manage. It’s been extremely difficult to bring a drone’s construction-verification imagery, especially into a 3D BIM model.

But Dronomy has software that offers a robust solution to this problem.

“It adds knowledge to construction,” VP of Business Development said Gil Mildworth said.

Dronomy is a very exciting Israeli startup that created SiteAware, powerful technology that transforms off the shelf consumer drones into a sensor with brains that can create 3D “as built” models of construction sites just by flying a construction site. What makes this company even more exciting is their ability to get the drones to autonomously fly low and close to the actual structure, capture high-resolution data from all angles which allow for high-accuracy analysis of the construction project.

Dronomy can use the aerial imagery to build 3D models that can be overlaid and compared to BIM “as planned” models. General Contractors can compare each BIM model created by Dronomy to the previous model comparing “as planned” to “as built” over time. The solution, called SiteAware by Dronomy, also integrates to the existing workflows of the GC’s to provide automated content adding visual perspectives to punch-lists and for RFIs.

“We allow GCs and owners to continuously and remotely monitor their construction projects, adding unparalleled insights. The ability to compare the intention and the actual result of the construction is what adds value” Mildworth said. “You can even see what changed in the project automatically over time with our 4D progress report.”

Dronomy, HingePoint

SiteAware automatically highlights the delta or what has changed between models so the user can easily see and document what has changed on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

“You can get half-inch-level accuracy for measurements just with simple autonomous drone scan of the work site,” Mildworth said.

The software is ideal for construction sites that are building from the ground up, like commercial or high-rise buildings, and sites that have many buildings, like a large apartment complex. This is where Dronomy differentiates itself as compared to others in the market.

Don’t believe that statement?

Ask HDR Inc.

HDR is an architecture, engineering and consulting firm that was founded in 1917. It’s employee owned with 10,000 employees. The firm has worked in all seven continents and has done notable projects like the Hoover Dam Bypass, Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and The Roslin Institute.

HDR currently does a lot of work related to health care spaces, science and technology and education and civic spaces.

“Technology has evolved tremendously,” HDR health care architect Susana Erpestad said. “To design with true information or even evidence, it helps sustain the concepts you create.”

The way HDR uses data to inform design has changed the most. The firm uses a lot of parametric models, but the goal is always to match what is in the field with what is in the model.

By using virtually any software platform available in the market, teams find which platforms will inform the design they do.

“I think data is power,” Erpestad said. “I think part of the big impact we have right now is BIM and data management.”

James Bates, an HDR engineer, said they deliver a lot of their requirements and information through Revit. But they do not solely rely on it.

They are constantly in the field checking things against their designs.

“We collaborate face to face. We collaborate with software. We work in the same models,” Bates said. “Then each of us bring our different software that we use into that process so we can comprehensively build the building.”

Bates said the company has been able to sustain its technological advantage through new recruits.

“We have a lot of breadth of experience at HDR ranging from people just beginning in the industry and people being there for a really long time,” Bates said. “I think the way that software is adapted to the process – we can only get that from the emerging professional.”

We were surprised that we had a different definition of Building Information Modeling from some of the academics. One of our slides is a comparison table. We were showing a comparison of the limitations of each category. Our main message was that the format of your data determines how well you will be able to collaborate, communicate and work with others. If you are using Desktop CAD, you’re limited to vector images and you can mainly only share these by printing the drawings. If you’re using Desktop Revit, you have many more options and plugins to make your model 3D. But no matter what, you’re still limited to collaborate behind the firewall and network your desktop is on. Subcontractors cannot add on to your model and it’s more difficult to do clash detection. Also, think of this category as any 3D modeling program that only runs on your desktop and is limited by the network it is on. Even if you have the mobile version of Revit, you still do not have a full building information model. So What is Building Information Modeling? Let’s be clear, Building Information Modeling is not a thing. It’s not a piece of software or hardware. You cannot get building information modeling off the shelf or at an online store. It's a strategy. It’s a strategy to collaborate and work with teams on a building project. When we at HingePoint say BIM, we are saying that all of your data about a project is in one database and can be accessed from one screen. Most often it can be accessed from the 3D model itself. Building Information Modeling is an interconnected suite of data that is integrated between systems. Below is a list of systems that can be connected to a 3D model. Once you have 5-7 systems of data attached and integrated into your building data, we think you have a BIM model. But not every customer is going to want the same information in their model, so it’s important to know what kind of data is right for your business and building. Here’s what kind of information might be in a database connected to the 3D model. We call these subsystems:
  • 3D models – This includes models from all sub-contractors to determine clash detection: electrical, mechanical, plumbers, civil engineers, etc.
  • Contents and Finishes Library
  • Specs Library
  • 4D – which means your model can connect to schedules. Then you can run simulations in Revit and actually see the project being built.
  • Procurement System
  • Contract Management
  • Capital Outlay
  • Pro Forma
If you are using a BIM model, you’re in the cloud and can access plans and information from any mobile device. Anyone who has the credentials can add to this 3D model. Then your team can work together to determine clash detection. You can have any type of technology integrated with it.

To do so, UL recently launched a web-based product, sustainability-information tool that will help users select credible green products and place that information into their Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. “Most people know UL for our fire, mechanical, safety testing; we’ve been doing that for 120 years,” said UL public affairs director Mark Rossolo at Autodesk University. “What most people also don’t know though that we are the largest certifier of sustainable products for use in the buildings.” The web app--called SPOT--features more than 40,000 products. SPOT’s database will help architects and designers identify products by sustainable attributes, MasterFormat product codes and building rating system credits such as LEED v4 and the WELL Building Standard™. “We all need all to be thinking about having more sustainable products in our building,” Rossolo said. “Is the carpet we’re standing on admitting potentially harmful chemicals? Has that been tested? We don’t know unless we put a product in... that has been certified.”
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HfAMUpzFcg&list=PLJOB2Ahoqzp8xnxVjtgO8TF563aGzUIsx  
SPOT database goes beyond traditional green certification data to include a comprehensive view of a product’s attributes through expanded product listings. The expanded listings will also include safety data, such as fire ratings and, for furniture, performance certifications and claim verifications.  This data will be curated and managed by UL to give users confidence that the data is from reliable, credible sources. “When you’re getting to a Revit user you’re at the ground level of importance for ensuring that those products that have sustainability attributes are put in there… like protecting occupant health,” Rosollo said. “Starts to get us thinking about more than just, ‘does this comply with specs that the architect gave me?’” To enhance the mobile experience, UL’s SPOT app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

At Autodesk University 2016 Sweets.com showcased their new Revit plugin on the showroom floor. Users can tag product data into their Revit design models. "Sweets is a marketplace where users can find multiple manufacture’s products,” said James Jackson, Co Founder of Global Product Data, LLC. “Directly from the Sweets app you’ll be able to go to manufacturers' websites and automatically tag product data in your model.” It’s saves Revit user huge amounts of time. Usually designers or architects must manually type the data in or they would go out and search the Internet for manufactured specific BIM content and bring that into their design model. “The product tagging technology allows them to select product data and automatically write that data in with a single click,” Jackson said.

As much as Revit and Autodesk technology is praised, the software has created an abundant amount of manual work in the architecture, engineering and construction industry. Startups and entrepreneurs are starting to fix this problem. “We use BIM 360, Revit and build Revit families for many of our customers; Autodesk has the best design and build software in the world,” HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. “However, it can create a lot of manual work for people in our industry.” Sweets.com hopes to alleviate the manual task of tagging things like, doors, windows and other key product data. “This is a great step in the right direction to automate the AEC industry,” Finnerty said. “We’ve got to get rid of the busywork so we can focus on the more important items when designing and building.” The Sweets.com app is available in the Autodesk App Store for free.

They started the presentation with tips on how to use Revit for beginners. Here are some of those tips. CAD vs. BIM workload curve As the construction process goes along it's harder to make changes and it gets more expensive, as seen by the popular graph above. Shifting your time and effort “to the left” sooner in your design process, can save time on each project. One of the primary ways to do this is through Revit templates. The exact tools that you include in your template will depend on your specific needs. Revit makes this possible with templates because redundant work from project to project is limited. Create Templates If you have a good template, you save time, meaning you reduce effort and costs. Juge and Crawford have invested a lot of time on their templates. The more time you put into setting up your project template, the more time you can save on each future project. Your templates set up the data you want:
  • Parameters
  • Families
  • The drawing sheets
  • The plan (top) and elevation (side) view of your model.
Stop repeating yourself Here's their main point. Any schedules you repeat you can put in a Revit template. Any type of workflow you do for every project, you should put into a template. A schedule is basically a spreadsheet of your data. For example, you could have a schedule or the data of every door in your building. If you're starting a new similar project, you can either start from scratch and build the data needed for doors, or you can have a template with the saved data. Anything that you might repeat in any future project should be added to your template. ---- The Hard Part You've got to go through this step. You have to tag all your elements and make every item unique. It takes time. But if you don't do it you might as well just use AutoCAD. Other tedious tasks include:
  • Annotation tags
  • Symbols
  • Text styles
  • Dimension styles
  • Legends
--- Linking AutoCAD to Revit  Be careful.  This is not a best practice. You don't want to have too many AutoCAD links. AutoCAD files can have a lot of baggage in them and potentially crash Revit. Sometimes it's inevitable to have AutoCAD links, but it's better to get rid of AutoCAD links completely. --- #1 Thing to Do: Get Started Just get started. Just do a project. Hunker down. Bite the bullet and get going. A good place to start is with your last project. Just get it in Revit so you can start making your templates. Check out HingePoint's Revit eBooks to learn more.

Some interesting Revit applications The Autodesk App Store offers a lot of useful Revit applications. In this article I will list all the applications that I have found useful and will indicate why. HOT GEAR PROJECT The first application that caught my attention is the implementation parameter explorer Hot Gear Project, which offers nice features in terms of handling the elements parameters. This application will allow you to filter your selections based on elements of settings and change the element parameters filtered group. Two very interesting operations are possible with this application, it is particularly intercommunication between this application and excel, especially the visualization of your project by coloring the surface of the elements according to parameters. Look at the example below Example quite telling. This application will allow first filter and select items by choosing to handle their instance parameter or type parameter: the field can increase on Revit. Other features are offered by this application, including the handling of join between walls and all the functions that used to group sets of elements. To discover!   APPS OF THE BIMCODER The app store Autodesk offers a number of interesting applications that extend the capabilities of Revit. I suggest you find one developed by Bimcoder, which are quite helpful and make the use of REVIT easier in some aspects. There is first the application Auto Floors Builder, which automatically generate tiles and flooring by taking limits as beams and columns. It's a pretty useful application and not save some time for the representation of floors at different levels. Bimcoder also developed an application that meets all the right features for intercommunication between REVIT and Excel, it is the application: ScheduleSync Pro. As the name suggests, the nomenclature are exploitable with this application in Excel. Another useful application is Curtain Modeler, this application makes the implementation of curtain wall much more intuitive. Two Application for REVIT MEP exist and have some utility, first Align Duct, and allows on relives map align the pipe without much effort from their oubien axis relative to their external generator, and on the other hand the application auto-insulation creator, which enables to apply to pipelines of fast and mass insulation sheaths. A last application that is called switch next order which is quite useful for defining forms of connection, especially between pole / beam / slab. In addition to the applications developed within the app store Autodesk, bimcoder demonstrate detailed understanding of specific development Revit, and work of reference clients. To discover applications, visit the site app store Autodesk their section.   BOM TO EXCEL! Here is an application developed by HingePoint, an expert company in Bim Texas-based, technically sound and very promising in terms of customers it already has! Hingepoint which are authorized Autodesk developers, developed a super BOM Application to EXCEL BOM to Excel is an application that will automatically create material lists from your Revit models and exports and formats BOMs reports, estimates and statements of quantities to Excel. Finally, you can add cost parameters in Revit and get estimates and quotes, snapshots and costs. BOM to Excel is full of small features that allow you to operate both powerful and Excel like grouping paintings by elements of property. BOM to Excel is advisable, and HingePoint have a future. To download BOM to Excel, we must go to the application page on the app store.   APPS OF THE DZ Studio! Revision Cloud Manager is a great application to generate a chart the history list of changes that have been identified by revision clouds. Better than that, it can manage in a table the review comments. This is an application to put order in your revision history. This application allows you to therefore create a schedule that is not natively offered on Revit and especially the export to excel. DZ studio also offers other applications as "User Editing History" which allows for example to be able to list the history of your operations. This application allows also to perform such operations filtering on your history. On the space for DZ studio on the app store Revit you will be able to download test versions and also offers free applications such application "End User Wizard". DZ Studio applications are the work of a designer architecture, a high sensitivity to architectural formal language and polymorphisms.   WebGL-Publisher Export for Autodesk® Revit® This is a tool that allows you to export your model REVIT to view it with any compatible browser WebGL, without additional software installation. The result is stunning, because it allows you to navigate your model in a web browser like firefox. Export will include: visible categories of the active 3D-View or the selected entity Solids, meshes, lines, polylines and geometric bodies inside the cutting area Export creates a file mpm (WebGL-Publisher Model) and an html file that displays the exported model. The tool is developed by German specialists top flight cad and webgl: CADMAI Software GmbH. Their applications are available on the app store REVIT their dedicated page.   Xinaps Financial Simulator Xinaps Financial Simulator ™ is a plugin for Revit which as its name suggests allows you to generate a financial approach to your project, you will among other things:
  • Assigning costs to the elements of your models.
  • Create global costs such as rental rates.
  • Generate a notion of performance such as the ratio of cost of construction and sale price.
  • Establish performance tables.
Are in this application adds functionality to Revit mainly on the concepts of construction costs and efficiency. It is a subscription. The interface is user friendly and presents visually speaking graphs. You can find it on the website of the app store of Autodesk.   OMNIA REVIT Omnia REVIT is the name under which Thorbjorn Hoverberg publishes REVIT applications. Thorbjorn Hoverberg is an architect / Swedish engineer who has developed successful applications of 3 REVIT is also Certified Professional Revit 2013/2014 and 2015. Thorbjorn is recognized in the REVIT community for his strong skills not only on but also REVIT Dynamo Vasari Lumion, Sketchup .Net C #, PHP, HTML, SQL, 680x0 / 6502ASM Windows, Linux, and Cats The 3 applications Scope Box Purge, Scope Box synchronizer and Scope Box Reorder. They are available on the app store REVIT. Scope Box Synchronizer: This is an application that lets you import definition of areas selected from a Revit project linked to your project, and to compare these areas with those you have in your project. . Similar to the functionality integrated Copy / Monitor, but in areas of definition link revives. Scope Box Reorder: After creating defining areas this application allows to schedule the selectionnées instances. You will have the opportunity you will have the opportunity through pop define scheduling menu (alphabetical, numerical etc ...). Here is a tutorial about this application. Scope Box Purge: Finally in the proposed trio, an application to remove the areas of definitions that will not be used.   AVATAR BIM - QUICK PRINT Printing on REVIT is even easier thanks to QUICK PRINT AVATAR developed by BIM, BIM superb specialist team based at the 4 corners of the world!

But a big problem that has arisen from the onslaught of drones is how can general contractors or property owners use drones to add value to what really matters – better monitoring and managing their projects and actually get useful insights out of the drone flights? Drones that just fly high over job sites are limited with their ability to capture the entire site, and imagery taken by workers from ground level are usually out of context and hard to manage. It’s been extremely difficult to bring a drone’s construction-verification imagery, especially into a 3D BIM model. But Dronomy has software that offers a robust solution to this problem. “It adds knowledge to construction,” VP of Business Development said Gil Mildworth said. Dronomy is a very exciting Israeli startup that created SiteAware, powerful technology that transforms off the shelf consumer drones into a sensor with brains that can create 3D “as built” models of construction sites just by flying a construction site. What makes this company even more exciting is their ability to get the drones to autonomously fly low and close to the actual structure, capture high-resolution data from all angles which allow for high-accuracy analysis of the construction project. Dronomy can use the aerial imagery to build 3D models that can be overlaid and compared to BIM “as planned” models. General Contractors can compare each BIM model created by Dronomy to the previous model comparing “as planned” to “as built” over time. The solution, called SiteAware by Dronomy, also integrates to the existing workflows of the GC’s to provide automated content adding visual perspectives to punch-lists and for RFIs. “We allow GCs and owners to continuously and remotely monitor their construction projects, adding unparalleled insights. The ability to compare the intention and the actual result of the construction is what adds value” Mildworth said. “You can even see what changed in the project automatically over time with our 4D progress report.” Dronomy, HingePoint SiteAware automatically highlights the delta or what has changed between models so the user can easily see and document what has changed on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. “You can get half-inch-level accuracy for measurements just with simple autonomous drone scan of the work site,” Mildworth said. The software is ideal for construction sites that are building from the ground up, like commercial or high-rise buildings, and sites that have many buildings, like a large apartment complex. This is where Dronomy differentiates itself as compared to others in the market.
