Revizto and OpenSpace Collaborate to Unlock the Value of BIM for Construction Teams
Companies Partner to Enhance Field-to-Office BIM Collaboration Through Integrated Platforms
SAN FRANCISCO, June 1, 2023 — OpenSpace, the global leader in 360° reality capture and AI-powered analytics, announced today a new strategic relationship to promote greater transparency and coordination in the construction industry with Revizto, the industry-leading Integrated Collaboration Platform that streamlines and centralizes project workflows and communication. Both companies are dedicated to unlocking the potential of BIM on construction sites and improving the exchange of information between VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) and field teams.
While BIM has gained widespread adoption among design and engineering professionals, its utilization in the field has been limited. According to the report “Accelerating Digital Transformation Through BIM” by Dodge Construction Network (2021), contractors using BIM have witnessed significant improvements in quality, health and safety, cost control, schedule control, and overall business results. However, only 44% of general contractors, 35% of specialty trade contractors, and 33% of owners have integrated BIM into their practices, indicating a gap between office and field teams. On the other hand, reality capture technology is becoming widely embraced on construction sites.
To bridge this gap, OpenSpace has made substantial investments in its reality capture platform and BIM capabilities. The technology aims to simplify BIM visualization and make it actionable in the field, strengthening coordination between office and field teams. The company has already observed a 27% increase in users that utilize BIM, indicating a strong interest in combining BIM and reality capture in the field.
Revizto is collaborating with OpenSpace to deliver integrated workflows to their mutual customers.
Through our collaboration with Revizto, we can prioritize the interests of both VDC and field teams. By streamlining workflows, we can enhance coordination, save valuable time on a daily basis, accelerate project completion, and enable VDC managers and field teams to be more efficient so they can focus on what they do best.
We are excited to work alongside partners that share the vision to empower the teams on-site. With Revizto, our customers can use solutions like OpenSpace to help field teams effortlessly capture current site conditions, compare it to BIM models, and explore their sites. When combined with our platform, the power to break down data silos and facilitate seamless collaboration among project teams anytime, anywhere, will be easier than ever.
