How GAMMA AR is essential for Facility Managers

How GAMMA AR is essential for Facility Managers

You already have seen how GAMMA AR is helping BIM and Construction Managers. But not only. The solution is also intended to help Facility Managers in the operation of buildings. Find out how!

The Facility Manager takes charge of all the services related to the management of a site, once the building has been built. Changes are usually made to buildings over time and GAMMA AR is therefore the practical solution for this kind of management. Indeed, this changes can be put together and tested for consistency by using our tool. But let’s learn a little more about the features that are useful for Facility Managers.

The benefits of using GAMMA AR for the operation of buildings

There are many features that simplify the Facility Manager’s work in the operation of buildings. Indeed, GAMMA AR enables to detect objects that need maintenance more easily.

Also, it allows Facility Managers to document changes in the building and updating the model based on data created previously by GAMMA AR. This facilitates the handling of potential changes. The solution therefore can replace older CAFM tools.

As you can notice, GAMMA AR is not only for Construction management. The full potential of GAMMA AR can be accessed by using BIM Models for the operation of buildings.

By using BIM Models for the operation of buildings, it can improve processes for many Facility Managers.

Let’s take for example a simple task: a broken window.

To replace a broken window, a classical process requires either looking up information in a not easy to use CAFM system or plainly on a paper documentation. This takes time, is not very intuitive, and needs more effort.

The process in GAMMA AR is much easier. Only requiring you to just select the building component and do the necessary documentation using augmented reality on the site in just few minutes.

As you can see, GAMMA AR has many advantages for different stakeholders in the construction industry. If you have more questions about the product, we would be delighted to answer to you. Just send us an email at info@gamma-ar.com

Discover what our clients like the most about GAMMA AR

The opinion of our clients is really important to us. This is why we are constantly collecting feedback from them, in particular to improve GAMMA AR. Enhancing and offering what is best for the construction industry is our priority. Here is the testimonial of Roland Frank, CEO of Frank Fachbauleitung GmbH that we had the chance to receive.

Roland uses GAMMA AR for the needs of his company. We had the chance to collect his experience with the software.

1. What were the reasons you tried GAMMA AR?

In all projects, the question arises as to whether the planned will also be built into the conditions on site, whether the space is available and whether the individual components can be revised. Even after the maintenance work, GAMMA AR can display the as-built model and thus make the installations located there “visible” through a closed suspended ceiling without having to open an inspection cover beforehand.

“What I like the most about GAMMA AR is […] the easy handling for all people involved in the construction project”

3 construction problems that GAMMA AR solves

3 construction problems that GAMMA AR solves

There are still many problems on construction sites. Loss of money, loss of time, poor coordination between professionals. GAMMA AR is dedicated to eliminating these problems. Discover the elements that affect BIM Managers and Construction Managers in their projects and how GAMMA AR solves them.
GAMMA AR solves construction problems

2020 has been a very special year for the construction industry. Indeed, with the health crisis of COVID-19, it has affected many projects. First, in terms of productivity due to the shutdown of many construction sites and the implementation of safety preparations and protocols that slowed down the projects in progress. But in addition to this, many problems have already been recorded and are still limiting projects. And for that, GAMMA AR exists and helps.

GAMMA AR is a construction app that brings BIM Models to the construction site using augmented reality. Prevent rework, track progress or combine multiple 3D BIM models, these are some of the features of GAMMA AR. Features that aims to help BIM Managers and Construction Managers, among other stakeholders, to save the followings tasks:

1/ Save time

According to a report of Autodesk, construction professionals lose more than 14 hours per person each week on non-optimal activities. This corresponds to 5.5 hours per week looking for project data and information, 4.7 hours per week resolving conflicts and 3.9 hours per week dealing with mistakes and rework.

This loss of time leads to 72% of projects behind schedule..

GAMMA AR aims to reduce this waste of time and optimize it to avoid delays in any construction project. By bringing the BIM Models directly to the construction site, the app helps to detect errors, and thus helps to avoid or correct them, which significantly saves time.

2/ Save money

The loss of money can be caused by various reasons: expensive rework, poor productivity or poor coordination on job site, as we will discuss later. It is essential for every professional to have the right tool to makes these kinds of saving possible. This is also why GAMMA AR was created. Not only to save time, but also to save money and avoid additional costs.

As you can see with the example below, GAMMA AR could have saved 2800€ to the contractor.

How GAMMA AR helps to prevent construction problems
14 core drillings costs 2800€

GAMMA AR helps you to prevent potential errors (and costs) by visualizing the 3D BIM / VDC information before building it in reality.

3/ Better coordination on site

Coordination on a construction site is the keystone of any project. Poor communication between the different stakeholders of a project causes what we have seen above: a waste of money and time.

Indeed, according to a report, for almost 70% of contractors: missing deadlines and running over budget is caused because of poor job site coordination.

Also the Autodesk report announces that on average, 52% of all rework globally is caused by poor data and miscommunication. This corresponds to more than half of the rework. In conclusion, we can confirm the importance of good communication and coordination between the members of a team to successfully complete a construction project.

GAMMA AR aims to connect the field with the office, to enable better communication on the construction site as well as in the offices. With the GAMMA BIM PORTAL, we provide an intuitive and easy way to connect the construction site with all the stakeholders of a project in real time.


81% of contractors say that, in general, software helps them complete projects on time and under budget. As you can see, GAMMA AR is the solution for all your problems and construction projects. Have a look at the testimonials of those who have already tested GAMMA AR.

GAMMA AR for Building Handover

Easy and fast Building Handover with GAMMA AR

Building handover is a crucial step in the completion of a building. The handover documentation creates clarity for all parties and confirms finished work as well as work that still needs to be concluded. The handover documents represent a legal foundation for any conflicts arising about alleged construction defects and as such requires the utmost diligence and precision.

A well-done handover creates transparency and fends of unfounded claims, aiding builders, contractors, architects, structural, and MEP / HVAC engineers.

Building Handover for contractors with GAMMA AR

How GAMMA AR facilitates the Building Handover

By using augmented reality on building sites, the staff on the field can compare intuitively the 3D BIM planning and the actual construction to track progress and identify deviations. A precise building-component based documentation is created. GAMMA AR’s unmatched precision helps to deliver the handover documentation in unparalleled detail and speed. Information collected on the site can be integrated into the BIM models to have a truly BIM-based handover.

Digital Archive

An important feature for the Handover is that the information is securely archived and protected from tampering. Once information is saved inside GAMMA AR, the system will safely track and store any changes on the information, making it impossible to “cheat”. GAMMA AR supports open BIM methods and allows for all information to be exported as BCF (BIM Collaboration Format) helping organizations to access the data from GAMMA AR in other issue management systems.

GAMMA AR INTEGRATES WITH AUTODESK BIM 360

GAMMA AR INTEGRATES WITH
AUTODESK BIM 360

Instead toggling between two applications, BIM 360 and GAMMA AR customers can now rely on one solution for their construction reviews.

Construction is complex. In order to execute on projects successfully, teams across the project lifecycle – from design to site construction and close-out – need to be able to access the information they need, when they need it.
This is where GAMMA AR and its new integration with Autodesk BIM 360® comes in. GAMMA AR applies augmented reality (AR) to overlay BIM models on live construction sites and makes the views available on mobile devices. GAMMA AR uses the data contained in design files to show what the build should look like and compares it to what’s being constructed onsite. All stakeholders, ranging from owners, design managers, project managers, subcontractors and more, can use the tool to monitor construction and ensure it maps to the intended designs.

Now, through an integration with Autodesk BIM 360, a leading construction management software that is directly linked to design files used across the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, customers can import their design models from BIM 360 directly in to GAMMA AR. By linking BIM 360 and GAMMA AR, customers can ensure they’re always looking at the latest designs available to the project team in BIM 360, so they can identify and address any discrepancies immediately.

GAMMA AR allows customers on site to capture information directly in the application. If they notice any errors or conditions on the site that don’t align with design, customers can instantly create RFIs, write comments and link photos to specific locations in their BIM models. Those observations can also be attached to specific building components, so the on-site team can collaborate in real-time with all stakeholders who need to be aware of the situation. Mistakes can be avoided or addressed immediately, reducing the need for rework and ultimately helping projects stay on time and within budget.
