New tools will further augment existing technologies to foster a more comprehensive and integrated level of analysis for the built world
Through its new feature updates, Avvir’s Progress Quantification offering allows for the ability to use a project’s existing Work Breakdown Structure or Schedule of Values, providing the first-ever coherent and transparent link between finance and construction teams. Now, project managers can leverage the company’s enhanced offering to quantify construction progress or verify trades’ self-reported status on a line-by-line item basis. The company’s custom Work Breakdown Structures or Schedule of Values add to Avvir’s existing support for Uniformat and Masterformat. In addition, improvements to Avvir’s Automatic Inspection make it easier to find what installation errors require immediate action and act on them.
“Avvir provides the richest breadth and depth of data, but knowing what to do with those insights is the key to preventing re-work, avoiding mistakes and protecting project schedules,” said Raffi Holzer, CEO and Co-founder of Avvir. “These improvements to Avvir’s offerings are ultimately driven by our desire to equip construction executives with the tools to extract data, and subsequently embolden them to make swift, confident decisions on where and how to act.”
In January, the company introduced its Avvir Onsite service, which provides end-to-end reality capture and allows for the real-time extraction of data from the field for immediate analysis. Its capabilities are wide-reaching, from traditional stationary 3D LiDAR scanning, to 360-degree photo capture, to drone photography. By seamlessly integrating these real-time findings with a project’s building information model (BIM), Avvir can effectively identify any downstream effects from potential installation mistakes and better quantify construction progress and reporting.
Beyond collecting project data, Avvir continues to bolster its contextual capabilities, which act as the bridge between the digital and physical worksites. The company has made improvements to its BIM interaction tools, allowing for larger model sizes while simultaneously offering more detailed viewing options, including minimaps and dynamic panels. When coupled holistically with Avvir’s suite of solutions, these updates provide contractors and managers the ability to toggle information and better orient themselves in the context of their own BIM in order to get an intimate and detailed view of the project at hand.
Throughout 2022, Avvir will continue introducing much-needed tools to accelerate the development of new analyses and customizable features. A demonstrated focus on machine learning will increase prediction accuracy and decrease turnaround time to receive results. From an operational scope, the company is developing self-managed subcontractor permissions and a Do Not Track feature that will allow for added control of progress and cost tracking. In addition, Avvir is working to improve communications capabilities within its software in an effort to streamline remote coordination, assess imagery and data, and better collaborate on contextual analysis.
