Formitas and GAMMA AR Revolutionize BIM and AR Implementation in NRW’s Landmark Construction Project

Formitas AG, a leading company specializing in the digitization of the construction industry, is making significant strides in the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and augmented reality (AR) technology. In a groundbreaking partnership with the University Hospital of Cologne and medfacilities GmbH, Formitas is managing the BIM process and use of AR/VR of the Center for Metabolic Research (ZfS) in Cologne, supported by funding from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). As part of this ambitious project, Formitas is leveraging BIM expertise and introducing augmented reality app, GAMMA AR, to enhance collaboration, streamline communication, and optimize construction processes.

Overcoming Barriers to Digital Adoption in Construction and Engineering: Insights from Autodesk Report

In March 2023, Autodesk conducted a survey of 229 construction and engineering businesses from Australia, Japan, and Singapore to identify the State of Digital Adoption in Construction. In this report are reviewed the common barriers to digital adoption. The findings of this report shed light on the challenges faced by the industry and provide recommendations for businesses to overcome these hurdles.

How is augmented reality used in construction?

Augmented reality (AR) has been gaining momentum in various industries over the past few years, and the construction industry is no exception. AR technology has transformed the way we build and design structures and has become an essential tool for architects, engineers, and construction professionals. In this article, we will discuss how augmented reality is used in construction and its benefits.

How to become proficient in BIM: Learn, Practice, and get instant Feedback

We live in a changing world. Each industry around us is rapidly digitizing in response to surrounding challenges: increasing sustainability, geopolitical risks, economic volatility, and human resource challenges in a post-COVID society. The AEC industry (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) is not an exception here. EU is aiming for a 30% cut in its annual primary energy consumption by 2030, the war between Russia and Ukraine has impacted the European AEC industry profoundly by breaking supply chains. High unpredictability and cyclicality led Europe’s AEC industry to rely on temporary staff and subcontractors. And even these temporary teams are hard to find in time and with the required professionalism level – a quarter of construction companies are facing a scarcity of skilled design and construction workers. The answer to cover each of these modern trends is to drive the industry to digital transformation, to implement BIM (Building Informational Modeling) into each step more and more.

What is BIM augmented reality?

GAMMA AR represents a ground-breaking solution for the construction industry, facilitating the seamless transfer of data from Building Information Modeling (BIM) models to construction sites through the power of augmented reality. The tool’s efficacy has been widely recognized across numerous international projects, positioning GAMMA AR as the leading reference for BIM augmented reality. In the following article, we will provide a detailed exploration of the concept of BIM augmented reality and its attendant benefits, with specific reference to the functionality of our proprietary tool, GAMMA AR.

From the Field | Discussions with Ron Meester from BAM Bouw en Techniek

Ron Meester is Project Manager at BAM Bouw en Techniek, a leading construction company in the Netherlands, known for its innovative approach to building and engineering projects. We had the opportunity to meet him and get his feedback on the implementation of GAMMA AR in their construction projects. This article transcribed an insightful interview with Ron to better understand the challenges, how GAMMA AR resolved them, and the resulting benefits.

What is digital construction?

The construction industry affects us all. And in recent years, it has faced a number of challenges: climate change, sustainability, lagging productivity, and financial pressure. Until this day, we are creating and trying to find answers to these challenges via digital technologies. Digital technologies provide the construction industry with an opportunity to find innovative solutions to cope with a changing environment that could greatly impact the industry. In this article, we are going to define what digital construction is and give some examples.
