How it works

Construction Progress combines hardware, advanced SLAM and analytics to deliver crucial site information to your teams quickly and easily. 

Automatically generate clear progress reports with visualisations that show you the build progress made on site. 

It’s used by construction companies to track and record progress against a 3D model or a previous scan to improve efficiency, save money, create unbiased progress reports and provide valuable data to help resolve any disputes that may arise. Willmott Dixon are the first customer to use GeoSLAM Construction Progress. 

It starts with SLAM
1. It starts with SLAM

SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) creates a digital model of a site, by using a handheld mobile scanner. The SLAM technology used inside GeoSLAM’s product portfolio was developed by some of the smartest people on our planet. As you walk around your construction site, 43,000 invisible laser beams are emitted per second, and this is what forms a digital map. 

Capture
2. Capture

Using GeoSLAM’s mobile mapping system, capture regular scans by walking around the site. Within one hour, we’ll tell you what’s changed – automatically. No guessing, no maths, just the press of a button (and some very clever algorithms). You can compare each scan against the previous scan, or to a CAD model.

Process
3. Process

Plug your ZEB scanner into a computer, and we’ll automatically process the data using our smart data platform, GeoSLAM Connect. We can set the file to be automatically saved to a network folder of your choice, each time a scan is completed. 

View
4.View

View your 3D data, see notes, voice notes or photos located where they were made. Save your photographs and notes for reference or team collaboration. See what’s changed against a previous scan, or 3D model. 

Create
5.Create

You’ll have an easy-to-understand PDF report automatically generated and emailed to you, or saved in a file location of your choice. The PDF report will show the percentage of work complete or incomplete (compared to 3D model) and a simple visualisation of the site highlighting 3D change. A digital record of site progress over time can now be captured, reported and stored for the life of the project.

6. Where next?
6. Where next?

You choose to sync the results of your project to collaboration tools such as Dalux, Bim360, Viewpoint 4projects. You can also export the data to CAD packages or your CDE (common data environment).

We understand the challenges

Need for speed

Every construction project relies on each specialist in the chain of production being able to complete their work to a tight schedule.

Lack of time

Engineers often have only a short amount of time available to them in which to get all of their measurements taken and compare as-built models against the design plan.

Safety first

Sites are often hazardous and the need for safety and accuracy is paramount, which often makes productivity slow and time consuming.

Access issues

Taking bulky equipment to hazardous sites with limited access points can be difficult, and sometimes totally impossible.

Disputes

Delays can be costly, in time and money, and can cause expensive disputes between contractors and building owners.

Embracing Digital
Technology in Construction.

Innovation in construction gets a bad rap. Which feels somewhat unfair, after all, it is a ‘bricks and mortar’ industry, heavily reliant on equipment, machinery and a ‘hands-on’ workforce. The industry is often flouted as falling behind others in how it has embraced technology. Yet in recent years in particular, many forward-looking construction companies have deployed innovative solutions to better, and more safely, construct buildings.

Construction Progress in action

“We have been trialling the ZEB Go on numerous construction sites. It is extremely easy to use and has been adopted by various colleagues throughout the site. The speed of capture has resulted in us being able to capture a full site in a fifth of the time compared to our existing scanner.”
