Would you like to walk the construction site virtually? With virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR), your customer will already be able to have a look. The German construction industry may be a leader in providing innovative buildings, but there is still a lot to do in the area of digitization. Digital developments such as Building Information Systems (BIM) software, VR/AR, drones and 3D modelling can accelerate the catching-up process. Would you like to join in?
The largescale projects in Germany in particular have brought to light what is really important for construction projects. BER and Stuttgart 21 are on everyone's lips - modern management and targeted planning as well as the involvement of all subcontractors can speed up many things. This finding helps construction sites of all sizes - including yours.
Better collaboration and faster handover
How much time does your organization spend on meetings and consultations? The German construction industry operates with fixed and often time-consuming processes. By setting up modern ways of working and introducing digital innovations, you facilitate collaboration between different suppliers. And that leads to faster delivery and higher customer satisfaction.
New revenue streams and higher sustainability
Do you want to create a new revenue stream? Increase the satisfaction of your customers? This is possible through the application of digital innovations such as "Smart Sensoring". With this, contractors collect data on road and building usage and its impact on issues such as safety and energy management. You can present this to your customer as a digital dashboard. And what can 3D printing contribute to this? On-site 3D printing alone can help the construction sector make great strides in sustainability by reducing CO2 emissions.
Digital catching-up in the construction sector
The construction sector is in the midst of a fierce digitization process. Companies are digitizing and standardizing their daily work and processes, which increases productivity. Automation solutions are increasingly minimizing and replacing labor-intensive administrative processes. Technological developments and software opportunities are also becoming more accessible: think of 3D printing and VR/AR, for example. A fiber optic network is the solid foundation on which the sector can (and will) continue to build.
Future-oriented, flexible and secure digital infrastructure
How can you transport applications and data securely from A to B? With a future-oriented, flexible and secure digital infrastructure. This prevents data from falling into the wrong hands and meets the growing demand for bandwidth. Has your network connection been unexpectedly interrupted? Then your data is automatically rerouted via another route. Redundant network connections, where the physical fibers are contained in different cables, are a necessity rather than a luxury in the construction industry.
From construction planning to facility management
The capabilities are becoming more and more extensive: With appropriate software solutions, entire construction projects can be handled virtually, extensive databases enable the modeling of buildings and various simulations, a wide variety of participants in the construction program are brought together virtually at one table, planning is designed jointly accordingly, and even the construction itself is coordinated at the virtual desk. Warehouse management, personnel planning, subcontractors, site plans, construction plans - everything is available around the clock. The connection to these data sources is made via fiber optics - reliable and at high speed.
Once the building has been completed, the building data can be accessed by means of "smart sensoring", but also by means of "smart metering", thus simplifying the building management immensely. The building management can virtually retrieve all necessary information and react to it. In addition, this data can be incorporated into models to enable optimized building management. A fiber optic connection is suitable for networking the properties with a management center.
Speaking about construction planning: property owners benefit from high-speed connectivity
Property developers as well as owners are always on search for stable and low-cost connections for the next industrial area or business park, the next office building or for a conglomerate of properties they manage. In such cases, it makes sense to explore the best options for a fiber optic connection in advance and save money right from the start. If everything is prepared right from the start, this saves approval processes, permit purchases, additional excavation work and negotiations. Thanks to the open access approach, basic provision can be initiated right from the project planning stage, and a fiber-optic connection also makes it more attractive for companies to rent your property or use it for their own purposes. Everything is then already prepared, and it is easy to activate the lines. If you are entrusted with the construction planning for a business park, we look forward to planning your connections together.
