Construction site managers and craftsmen can benefit from GAMMA AR's augmented reality-based construction management software by intuitively overlaying 3D BIM Models accurately on the site. This reduces errors and enables quick and clear communication and progress monitoring, which ultimately saves time and money. The program overlays the workplace using augmented reality on mobile devices utilizing data from Building Information Models (BIM). This enables various building process participants, such as site managers and craftspeople, to keep a close eye on and monitor the construction site as it develops. Faults in the 3D BIM model as well as errors on the construction site (such as missing plumbing apertures in walls) are easily detectable and may be avoided at an early stage of the building process. GAMMA AR gives users the ability to annotate text, photos, and audio in addition to the ability to flag mistakes. All relevant stakeholders may see these annotations in the app and in a common web service. This makes the customary physical communication between many stakeholders that takes place at various phases of the building process considerably more effective. Early detection of building mistakes is essential because if they go unnoticed, they can become much more expensive to rectify and take much longer to complete. Therefore, GAMMA AR saves time in addition to lowering building expenses. Additionally, GAMMA AR continues to be useful even after construction is complete since it aids facility managers in sustaining buildings by offering visualization and communication infrastructure (e.g. visualize cables inside a wall for electricians). Using the GAMMA BIM PORTAL, planners and project managers may access the data from GAMMA AR in real-time. Users may connect with other solutions, distribute data, manage tasks with assignments, due dates, and revision statuses, and manage their projects here.
