Vision AI for BIM modeling
An EPC leader in the energy industry has been looking for an integrated solution to provide enhanced progress monitoring against their planned model and schedule for complex infrastructure development projects (4D BIM).

With many complex components, they sought a solution to support building their 4D BIM model by linking BIM elements to schedule activities and the ability to generate 3D point clouds from both drone images and 360 ° video capture. Most significantly, the solution had to support the entire lifecycle of the project, starting from site works through commissioning.

The company has relied on Alteia's data science and artificial intelligence expertise to build a solution for as-built vs. as-designed evaluations, 3D visualization, and engineering information completeness verification, using plant design files of various formats, and aerial drone surveys of physical assets. The platform displays visual progress and provides mark-up and measurement capabilities while leveraging AI to automate the identification of sub equipment and simplify the analysis process.

The ability to master project delivery dates during plant construction is critical for O&G companies. They must meet the first oil or first gas date in field development and ensure that yield increases are obtained without delay. Alteia developed a construction monitoring app on the Alteia platform to deliver information on progress and potential deviations to the engineering and projects department and visual intelligence from aerial and ground imagery to ease the acceptance process in the field.
