FARO's ecosystem to support AEC professionals to ensure traceability over the complete building lifecycle TRACEABLE CONSTRUCTION FARO® offers a seamless solution and workflow for capturing existing as-builts efficiently and accurately in order to process data directly into deliverable CAD plans and BIM models using design software such as Autodesk® AutoCAD® and Revit®. What does Traceable Construction mean? Today, transparency and traceability of construction projects is not only of great benefit in terms of time and money for all project participants, but is also an essential success factor for lean construction projects to ensure a clean and trustworthy cooperation. The reality is often different, however, because suitable measuring tools and software and their shared accessibility are lacking. This is where FARO’s Traceable Construction concept comes in. On-site captureAs-Built Model & DesignDesign LayoutQuality ControlData Connect & ShareOn-site capture Site features are captured quickly, accurately and easily using FARO hardware. In a BIM process, understanding what you have to start with or what has been built is essential. As-Built Model & Design FARO software solutions enable the efficient evaluation of 3D measurement data from different sensor types. These help with the conversion to 3D models for further downstream use. The solutions work directly in industry-leading design software tools with simple, intuitive workflows. Design Layout FARO hardware and software solutions together enable the display of modelled or drawn objects into the real world. The position of components and assembly points are determined, prefabrication is aided and CAD geometry is marked out in reality. Quality Control FARO workflows compare CAD and 3D measurement data and identify deviations. The deviations are visualized in an easy-to-digest image or output as computable values. Deviations in construction can be corrected on-site or taken into account in further planning. Data Connect & Share FARO solutions integrate the data of different measurement methods used in surveying. They work with standard file formats and facilitate data exchange. FARO Cloud solutions enable the secure, worldwide exchange of 3D data and models and collaborative work in real time. FARO offers portable, efficient, secure and forward-looking solutions for data collection, pre-processing and evaluation for various surveying tasks in the design, build and operating phase. This enables FARO’s customers to accelerate processes, reduce project costs, minimize waste and increase profitability.
