Validate design concepts, structure and constructability

Avoid costly mistakes and rework

View complex 3D design models in VR or MR

BIM Holoview enables Autodesk 3D Revit® and Navisworks® files to be viewed as full fidelity 3D projections using the Oculus Quest 2 or the Microsoft HoloLens.

Models can be presented table-top for demos and discussions, and in full 1:1 scale for accurate remote or onsite visual verification of structural elements, services and fit-out plans.

Key features

Step 1: Process model in BIM Holoview.

Step 2: Download onto Quest.

Step 3: View anywhere (on-site, in office, at home).

No PC or internet connection required.

Easy switch between view of models.

Controllers or easy to use hand interactions.

Supports large models up to 2GB through ARR.

World locking provides the ability to accurately position a model to within 1/2 inch (1cm) of its actual location in the real world.

Easy to use hand interactions.

Issues can be raised in BIM 360.

How does BIM Holoview reduce construction costs and improve productivity?

BIM Holoview provides the most comprehensive understanding of design models possible.

This fully immersive form of visual verification empowers the AEC industry to make design and construction decisions with greater certainty, and to identify and mitigate risks before costly mistakes occur. Thereby rework, delays and cost overruns are eliminated.

Main use cases

The Quest 2 provides a cost-effective way for stakeholders to visualize design concepts, spatial dynamics and structure. Companies can have multiple headsets pre-loaded with models for use remotely and onsite.

Because the HoloLens allows hands-free operation and easy movement within the physical environment, it is well suited for use onsite during and post-construction.

Visualize the design as a digital twin

Architects and contractors can easily show stakeholders what their building will look like anywhere, anytime without the traditional VR setup.

Gain buy-in and achieve client sign-off quickly

Stakeholders can view a building as if completed in its actual location, accurately interpreting plans and their spatial relationship to the surrounding physical environment.

Undertake design reviews and pre-build checks

Superintendents and foremen have the quickest and most effective way to review building designs, mitigate constructability issues and to keep projects on budget.

Contractors onsite have full understanding of their works

Contractors can quickly and easily understand their works in 3D rather than from 2D plans, and plan job sequencing with other contractors thereby reducing errors and rework.

Provide clear instructions and technical support to workers

BIM/CAD models overlay real world construction environments for when works have already started. Contractors can easily see how their upcoming works are impacted by existing works.

Identify mistakes and constructability issues using Digital Twin

Because model overlay is extremely accurate (to ½ inch or 1cm) engineers and contractors can confidently identify design mistakes, resolve clashes and constructability issues early.

Make project scope and design changes early

The new design scope can be projected into the construction environment so that all stakeholders can assess the impact that changes would have on current and future works.

Pre-fabricators and onsite workers collaborate on specifications

Verification of plans with BIM Holoview ensures both the pre-fabricators and onsite workers are working to exactly the same specifications to avoid mismatches in requirements.

Undertake compliance checks

Provide accurate information in support of permits; review plans and issue corrections; remotely undertake progress walk-throughs; and undertake code of compliance inspections for all elements included in the design model.

“By performing projections of the unit in augmented reality the risks of failures in the construction site were minimized, optimizing productivity and, mainly, enabling delivery on time and expectations.”

360% ROI in a year

Construction rework is expensive, often comprising 5-10% of the construction budget. Much of this originates from:

  • Poor coordination
  • Incomplete or poor understanding by contractors
  • Inability to detect errors or omissions early
  • Disconnect between stakeholders and construction teams

BIM Holoview for HoloLens and Oculus Quest mitigate these issues to achieve an estimated 360% ROI in a single year.
