How drone technology can be used in BIM for Housing
It was great speaking at the BIM 4 Housing event in London yesterday about how the digital or reality capture information from drone technology can be used within BIM in the housing sector.
I was really impressed by the 5% cost saving made by the WM Housing Group on their Meadows regeneration scheme in Nottingham compared to a similar scheme where BIM wasn’t used. This was the first use of BIM in the housing sector and there was only one variation made to the design on the entire project.
We believe that the 2D/3D digital or reality capture outputs created from drone technology using photogrammetry or LiDAR will save time, reduce costs and improve safety on BIM for housing projects through the improved management of assets digitally, deeper data insights, better collaboration and improved data deliverables to clients and customers.
We also discussed other topics like terrestrial laser scanning or 3D laser scanning, Scan to BIM or Scan2BIM and REVIT modelling.
