Article
Full-text available
As the notion of data-driven analytics and turning data into action is becoming more salient in the construction industry, researchers and practitioners have recently devoted considerable effort to investigate the digital transformation of the industry. Along this journey, Digital Twin has been introduced to the industry as a concept that holds the...

Augmented Reality (AR) is a Construction 4.0 technology that is seen as a site-extension of Building Information Modelling (BIM). In addition to the practical aspect within the design and construction processes AR can be used to support teaching through visualizations and interaction. This article presents a new AR platform called “AR-supported Tea...
Article
The construction industry has undergone a radical transformation in its design and documentation process as it evolved from the days of the drafting board to today’s Building Information Modeling process. Despite the progress, a paradox of designing 3D in 2D space remains, calling for new visualization technologies that leverage the use of informat...

Building Information Modeling etabliert sich in der Bauwirtschaft schrittweise immer mehr. Aufgrund der offenen Standards gibt es hier eine Tendenz zu openBIM, vor allem bei öffentlichen Auftraggebern. Der gemeinsame Einsatz der openBIM-Methodik für alle Projektbeteiligten über den gesamten Planungs- und Bauablauf ist jedoch noch relativ neu und un...
Article

This research explores the current state of Construction 4.0 and discusses a four-layer implementation of Construction 4.0 in the industry. The research methodology consists of an extensive literature review to gain insights about Construction 4.0 and frame the four-layer implementation plan. A case study is also presented to showcase the proposed...

KURZFASSUNG: Im Forschungsprojekt BRISE-Vienna entwickelt ein Team aus Forscher_innen und BIM-Expert_innen das Baubewilligungsverfahren der Zukunft mit und für die Stadt Wien. Im Fokus steht das openBIM-Modell des einzureichenden Bauvorhabens. Dieses BIM-Modell wird teilautomatischen Prüfroutinen unterzogen. AR und KI unterstützen die Behörde im Ve...
Article
Full-text available
The digital transformation in the construction industry, which is also referred to as Construction 4.0, is gaining impact in recent years. BIM as the central point for model-based planning and communication is at the centre of this development. This paves the way for the implementation of further technologies, such as augmented reality (AR) or arti...

Die digitale Transformation in der Bauindustrie (auch als Bauen 4.0 bezeichnet) schreitet immer stärker voran. Im Zentrum dieser Entwicklung steht BIM als zentraler Punkt für modellbasierte Planung und Kommunikation. Der verstärkte Einsatz von BIM in Bauprojekten ermöglicht den Einsatz von weiteren Technologien im Bauprozess (Augmented Reality, Vir...

To date, the construction industry is one of the sectors of economy least affected by digitization.The increased use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in design firms is now accelerating the digitization of the construction industry. This enables the increased use of other digital tools in the construction process, e.g. Augmented Reality (AR)....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The construction industry is forecast to grow from its already impressive size to unprecedented new heights. This significant expansion, along with the increased complexity and sophistication of construction projects, has placed more pressure on construction companies to maintain their vitality and grow in the modern market. As the fourth wave of t...

The BIM model is the central point of data and information and has, therefore, diverse potential for the entire life cycle of a building.These advantages were still largely unused in the submission process. The City of Vienna is following a very innovative path and started the EU-funded research project BRISE-Vienna, in which a complete openBIM bui...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The construction industry has undergone a significant and radical transformation in its design and documentation process as it evolved from the days of the drafting board to today’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. At each stop along that journey, gains were made in information density and exchange. However, for all the progress made th...

Zusammenfassung Building Information Modeling (BIM) etabliert sich immer mehr in der Planungsphase als auch in der Ausführungsphase. Augmented Reality (AR) ermöglicht die Verwendung von BIM direkt auf der Baustelle und fördert somit den verstärkten Einsatz von BIM im Bauprozess. Sowohl Tablets als auch Datenbrillen können für AR zum Einsatz kommen....

BIM wird in der Planung immer mehr zum Alltag. Auch der weitere Bauprozess kann von der richtigen Verwendung von BIM profitieren. Dazu muss BIM auch auf die Baustelle kommen. Eine sehr vielversprechende Möglichkeit bietet dazu Augmented Reality, eine neue Technologie, die gerade ihren Weg in die Baubranche findet. Dieser Beitrag gibt eine kurze Ein...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Building Information Modeling (BIM) stellt für alle Beteiligten am Planungsprozess im Bauwesen den „nächsten großen Schritt“ dar. Es ist absehbar, dass sich in wenigen Jahren – wie bei der Einführung von CAD im letzten Jahrtausend – der gesamte Planungsprozess dahingehend anpassen wird, dass die BIM-Methode eine zentrale Rolle einnimmt. In Europa ü...

Project
The aim of BRISE is to significantly reduce the duration and increase the efficiency of the construction approval process by establishing a BIM-based system that makes use of 3D building models, combined with modern technologies. This system will be able to process BIM-based data provided by applicants, match this with existing, applicable and relevant legal frameworks and give immediate feedback on planned construction projects. Overall, it is expected that the quality of the building design will improve as well as the quality and quantity of blueprint information while reducing process time and costs. This should also improve the relationship between the building authority of the city of Vienna and the citizens.
Project
The aim of this research project is the development of a construction site-suitable augmented reality (AR) system included a Remote-Expert-System and a BIM-Closed-Loop data transfer system for improving the quality of construction, building security and energy efficiency as well as increasing the efficiency of construction investigation.
Project
In Zusammenarbeit mit dem unabhängigen und übergeordneten Verein „buildingSMART“ wird ein modulares Ausbildungsprogramm entwickelt, das den Abschluss mit einer Zertifizierungs-prüfung angegliedert an das „Professional Certification Program“ von buildingSMART Interna-tional ermöglicht. Damit werden schlussendlich österreichweit und international vergleichbare Qualitätsstandards für personenbezogene Kenntnisse und Kompetenzen in Building Informa-tion Modeling gewährleistet.
