Project Description
Independent real estate construction firm, STRUCTR Advisors were hired to develop Virginia Commonwealth University’s newest STEM building.
Why this tool was selected for your process
As the team was preparing to lay structural concrete, they decided to take a scan of the space using Reconstruct. Using their already owned drone, they were able to capture where the rebar layouts and sleeve MEP penetrations were for the slab. Taking that reality and overlaying it with the 3D point cloud that's generated from the photo, they realized that the sleeves did not match up to the plan, which momentarily halted further work in that area.
The previous method used
Prior to using Reconstruct, the team relied on drone footage and photography for mapping their construction sites. This method, while cheap to implement, was costly when mistakes arose, as visibility for potential errors was low. They knew they needed to use all the tools on their belt for this particular project to keep it moving.
Time / Money saved & the Business Impact
The team was able to proceed with concrete pouring knowing there wouldn’t need to be rework, which would have been incredibly costly, resulting in a $17,000 fee and hours of rework costs, setting the project behind time. All of this was avoided due to one Reconstruct capture.
