BIM implementation article by Anton Kaplun for GAMMA AR

BIM implementation across geographies: Europe vs the USA

The construction industry is one of the most important sectors of the economy in the USA and on the European continent with huge construction developments planned for 2023, such as skyscrapers, power plants, and hospitals, which cost several million or even several billion USD/Euros.

Flamanville 3 (a nuclear power plant in France -2,7 m €), Madison Square Garden Sphere (a sphere-shaped music and entertainment arena, USA – $2.8 Billion), and Crossrail (a railway project, UK – 23,3 Billion €) – each of these projects are extremely costly, and of course, design of these projects is based on BIM technology to reduce the cost of construction by identifying potential conflicts and errors early in the design process. Nowadays, no one will argue about the BIM implementation, but what was the way to get to this point, and do we have differences between BIM usage in Europe and US?

Augmented reality for construction GAMMA AR

Augmented reality for construction

The benefits of augmented reality have been demonstrated across a wide range of industries. The business spectrum is wide and varied, ranging from retail to health, and, more recently, construction, or, more precisely, architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. This article will provide a general description of what augmented reality is and how it is used in the construction industry. Last but not least, we will discuss the construction software GAMMA AR that utilizes augmented reality.

GAMMA AR for Issue Management

GAMMA AR for Issue Management

In construction projects, Issue Management can easily be a scourge. Construction managers must identify, document, and resolve issues on a construction site, which is chaotic when you do not work with the right tools. All construction projects should work with an issue management tool, and we have the solution. In this article we are going to review the benefits to work with a construction software that overlay the BIM models to the construction site and facilitate the work of construction managers.

Women on the construction site

Women in the construction industry

As the women’s movement for equity and rights has continued to progress, so has the inclusion of women in the construction industry. The industry is male-dominated and the number of women working in this sector, especially on the field, is low. However, the industry is changing and offering more space to women. Let’s have a closer look and explore together the numbers and how to increase support to have more women in construction.

Augmented Reality for Architects

Why Augmented Reality solutions are essential for architects

Oversee the construction site, check if the design is executed as planned on site are some of the many priorities of an architect. To be able to work efficiently, GAMMA AR helps with the preview of the model on the jobsite, but also with Issue management, and progress tracking. In this blog, we will review how the AR solution is essential for architects.

Building built with BIM Istanbul Grand Airport

Top 4 Buildings built with BIM

According to Autodesk, Building Information Modeling is the foundation of digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. It is the holistic process of creating and managing information for a build asset. The next buildings presented here show the capabilities of BIM.
