Augmented Reality and Construction: an Overview

“Technology is giving us the opportunity to do all of the construction inside in the office… with a computer helping us not do the wrong thing.”

– Fredrik Bergstrom, Gothenburg, Sweden

A couple weeks ago, we introduced you to Pat L’Heureux, a project engineer with Severino Trucking in New Hampshire, USA. Pat gave us a deep dive into his job, explaining how he uses SiteVision to alleviate many of the obstacles he faces every day. But beyond listing his own pain points, Pat’s description also hinted at augmented reality’s applicability in construction industry use cases far beyond his own. So today, we’ll discuss how SiteVision can solve problems and alleviate stress in a wide range of construction planning and execution tasks—from initial planning to the teams in the field to wrapping the job and moving on.

With over 170 employees, Severino Trucking delivers earthmoving and services in commercial site development, private subdivision roads, municipal road construction and New Hampshire Department of Transportation federally funded road construction

Let’s get started and learn how SiteVision has transformed Pat’s projects and get his insight on construction technology. 

Angelo Cerullo, Canberra Contractors, demonstrates Trimble SiteVision

Angelo Cerullo, director of Canberra Contractors is so excited about his involvement with the new Trimble SiteVision, that he wanted to share this video of the pioneering augmented reality solution in action.

Here he is on site on one of their Australian Capital Territory (ACT) subdivisions, demonstrating how Trimble SiteVision augmented reality makes it possible for you to walk from the construction site into the virtual completed site.

With Trimble SiteVision you can –

Take a walk through your job site and visualise:

  • Conceptual designs, from buildings to roads, as they might appear in real life
  • What lies beneath the ground or resides inside walls, such as water pipes and electrical services
  • Provide real world context to your designs:⠀
  • Communicate complicated plans and drawings
  • Precisely identify where concealed assets are
  • Minimise costly errors and safety related incidents
  • Simply upload your data, visualise and manipulate it in the field, and report back to the office—all through the Trimble Cloud.
