AR Jobsite Management System

Engineering-grade augmented reality app for managing building construction.

Engineering-grade AR for construction

vGIS AR provides effortless access to BIM information for everyone at the construction site. Being able to see BIM data in the form of accurate augmented reality visuals overlying the physical world enables workers to consult HVAC, MEP, structural, and other engineering drawings in the most intuitive way possible.

Overlaid with centimeter-level accuracy, augmented reality visuals help prevent errors, rework, project delays, and cost overruns by providing an accurate view of the job at hand.

No special equipment is required. Use devices already in your pocket — Android and iOS devices, or even the futuristic Microsoft HoloLens — to make the system available to everyone.

Industry Case Study

Why vGIS AR?

Displaying the current and proposed models as 3D objects in AR gives you a better understanding of your surroundings, increases productivity, helps validate accuracy, reduces errors, and provides a safer work environment.

Composite view of job site with and without BIM overlays helps validate percent completion. Issue reporting and live video chat capabilities improves collaboration and simplifies information flow between teams.

vGIS accepts traditional BIM and GIS files (IFC, DWG, DXF, and many others) or pulls data dynamically from Autodesk Build (BIM 360), Bentley iTwin, Esri ArcGIS, and other repositories to create accurate Augmented Reality (AR) views of surrounding infrastructure on the project site.

When combined with common platforms like Autodesk Build and Esri ArcGIS, vGIS automatically incorporates all changes in the AR view as your data changes at the source.

A few of many reasons to deploy vGIS

  • A user-friendly UI and an easy adoption process
  • Automated data conversion
  • Highly accurate visuals (accurate to within a centimeter)
  • Complete productivity workflows
  • Leading functionality depth
  • Collaboration and remote assistance tools
  • 85%

    faster understanding of surroundings

  • 80%

    faster review of potential clashes

  • 30-50%

    less time required for clash reviews

  • Up to 100%

    reduction in drawing-AR conversions

vGIS Use Cases

The best part of vGIS is the way it handles geospatial data - you add the data as you need, from different sources and formats, and the system merges it into a unified digital twin automatically.

You could add the entire underground utility of a city, and the app stills runs smoothly.
