Visual Progress

Finding the time to walk an entire jobsite to monitor construction progress can be a real challenge. Hexagon puts technology to work to allow 24/7 remote access to visualize and monitor your jobsite progress.

Progress Reporting

Data collection and analysis for timely and accurate construction progress tracking can be laborious and error-prone with traditional, manual methods.

Hexagon's technology and services can mitigate your construction project's risk by performing automated progress analysis and reporting based on digital data capture from your site.

As-built verification

The generation of accurate documentation for operational facilities as well as the verification of existing conditions are essential for both building renovations and new buildings.

Hexagon's workflow can accurately capture conditions in the field via laser scanning and provide detailed 2D or 3D documentation.

How it works:

Images are captured, mapped, and linked to floor plans or models for simple navigation from virtually any device with a web browser and internet connection. Streaming video can be viewed from webcams for real-time visibility or time-lapse videos for historical progress viewing.

Hexagon's Visual Progress workflow helps customers to gather visuals remotely from the construction site and enables them to interpret it, to actively manage project risks.

Visual Progress workflows are available in two service options:

A. Hexagon provides image capture, mapping images to floor plans, installation of webcams, and provides cloud-based visualization of all data in one location.

B. Hexagon provides 360 image capture, maps to 3D models, and provides cloud-based visualization of all data in one location.

How it works:

Earthwork
As-built reality capture data is analyzed against earthwork surfaces or building models using Hexagon technology with cloud-based visualization and reports providing more accurate results for easy communication amongst all stakeholders.

Hexagon's workflow solutions compare real-time earthwork as-builts against the project's existing grade, design intent, or interim UAV progress surfaces to determine scope of work, cost, productivity, and schedule requirements.

Earthwork Progress Reporting workflows are available in three service options:

A. Hexagon provides data capture and cut/fill analysis & reporting as a service.

B. Hexagon provides data capture as a service and trains customer on Hexagon's analysis workflow.

C. Hexagon trains customer on Hexagon's end-to-end capture and analysis workflow.

How it works:

Buildings
Hexagon provides workflow solutions to automatically generate progress reporting by floor, area, and trade by comparing reality capture data from the site to the project's model so customers can monitor and update their project schedule.

Building Progress Reporting workflows are available in two service options:
A. Hexagon provides 360 image capture, maps photos to 3D models, analyzes actual progress vs. planned progress, and provides visualization & reports via a cloud collaboration platform. B. Customer provides 360 image capture; Hexagon analyzes actual progress vs. planned progress and provides visualization & reports via a cloud collaboration

How it works:

For building renovations, documentation can often be outdated and unreliable for creating new designs.

For new buildings, the as-built state at the end of construction can no longer align with the design intent documents that need to be updated and handed over to the owner/operator.

How it works:

As-built verification workflows are available in 3 service options:

A. Hexagon provides laser capture, 2D/3D documentation creation, or correction as a service.

B. Hexagon provides laser capture and trains customers on Hexagon's drafting or modeling workflow.

C. Hexagon trains customers on Hexagon's end-to-end laser scan capture, drafting, and modeling workflow.
