    Illumine-i addresses the requirements of Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and Builders for complex projects that require consideration of both cost and schedule over time, so that planning, monitoring, and record-keeping must consider both dimensions. 

    Illumine-i provides precise estimation of quantities for all the construction elements of the project. 

     

    Scan data to BIM 

    Scan-to-BIM (or point cloud to BIM) is the practice of using 3D laser scanners to build BIM schematics of existing spaces. For example, a surveyor may visit a location to be used for construction or renovation, and collect data points in order to build a hyper-accurate representation of that physical space using digital tools.

    That scan data can be used to create an as-built BIM model of an existing structure or form the foundations of the model for a new construction project. This is generally done using LiDAR technology and techniques, allowing laser scanners to collect three-dimensional area data that is then fed into the system via point cloud processing.

    Scan-to-BIM can also be used to compare stages of construction and prefabricated parts to plans so that quality control can be managed with exacting detail and projects can be completed to plan. Where deployed, this delivers the highest levels of quality assurance possible, taking the detailed scheduling and schematics of BIM to the next level by allowing teams to compare those plans to outcomes, in precise detail if required. It saves time and money for design and construction teams by preventing mistakes through the use of real data.  

    BIM Automation

    One of the areas that we have shown heightened attention recently is the automation of various tasks in the field of engineering and architecture. The push from clients and competition to finish projects in less and less time is widely seen as one of the core issues in the AEC sector. We have standardized our solutions and have some set of rules for how normally our technologists should approach each project by slowly building up single-purpose tools, parametric objects, sets of rules and quantified data. 

    Benefits should be realized regardless of which project stage it is adopted. In our case, we started with BIM modeling as we saw maximum potential there to reduce overall project time. Increased efficiency in model creation should also cascade quickly to other stages. Nevertheless, automation in any of the process stages can make improvements in time consumption and provide a less prone to errors, more efficient workflow to engineers/architects. In terms of quality, automation enables to keep the quality improvement more consistent, reducing the slope of diminishing returns when applied to final stages, where usually any further refinement to the BIM model requires excessive amounts of time. Standardization and automated templates raise the overall quality level throughout the entire design process. The areas that we focus are 

    1. Computational Modeling

    2. Generative Designs

    3. ML & AI in Construction

    BIM Integration

    Facility management 

    Facility Management or Asset Management: Assets of a building comprises the physical building, its systems, equipment and surrounding environment. Asset management is effective in the short-term as well as for long-standing planning for preserving the building assets properly.

    The bi-directional Building Information Modeling (BIM) integration into asset management software facilitates superior visualization of assets and helps in the maintenance and operation of a facility.

    Space Utilization Management: Facility professionals and department liaisons can employ BIM to control, monitor and allocate proper spaces and pertinent resources inside a facility effectively. BIM space management application is useful for planning renovation projects and future requirements, distributing space for utilizing each corner of the building perfectly and monitoring the effect of intended changes.

    Disaster & Emergency Planning: BIM offers vital information about the building to enhance the effectiveness of disaster response plans and reduce any risk. BIM is combined with building automation systems (BAS) to demonstrate where the emergency is situated inside a building, to discover feasible routes to the affected area and to determine other hazardous areas within the building throughout such emergencies.

     

    Building Performance Analysis

    Building performance analysis emphasizes the measurement and assessment of various performance indicators covering the interests of owners, operators, and occupants in aspects like energy, lighting, thermal comfort, and maintenance. There is a great interest to improve energy management in buildings considering the increasing price of fuel, and the global goal of reducing CO2 output. One of the current challenges in this domain is to optimize energy consumption while considering occupant comfort.

     

    IoT integrated Smart Buildings

    Modern buildings will contain an increasing number of wireless sensors and meters to monitor building performance. This data allows us to analyze the building performance to increase energy efficiency along with user comfort. The continuous development of wired building automation systems and the current emerging of easy-to-integrate wireless solutions have increased the amount of available building performance data to evaluate these indicators.
