Application of an Interrelated UAS-BIM system for Construction Progress Monitoring, Inspection and Project Management
Construction progress monitoring and constant comparison between “As-planned and the actual state of the project “As-built” is a critical task for construction project managers to keep projects on track. Currently, progress and inspection reports are based on manual input and observation of each and every phase of the construction projects, such processes are costly and time consuming.
Unlike the traditional method for project control, integrating advanced technologies such Building Information Modeling (BIM), Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) and real-time cloud based data modeling and analysis, enable real time project control, monitoring and inspection. Advanced BIM encompasses project As-Planned information such as design, specification, cost, and schedule which enables CPMs to have an accurate comparison between as As-Planned and the UAS based As-Built states of the project. This paper describes:
- The current state for building information modelling and unmanned aerial system in construction projects.
- A strategy for the application and integration of BIM and UAS throughout progress monitoring of the construction of a recreational facility.
- The challenges and opportunities for full automation and data analytics towards real time project control and monitoring of Construction projects.
