Engineering companies embrace technologies to create innovative solutions for their client's most complex challenges. For example, to improve collaboration and streamline the workflow, many are transitioning to a 100% Building Information Model (BIM) environment and increasingly using Matterport digital twins to generate 3D BIM models.
Matterport Case Study - HH Angus
HH Angus, a company dedicated to engineering excellence for over 100 years, has turned to new technologies to streamline its workflow and improve collaboration among team members.
To minimize training on multiple software platforms, the company is moving towards a 100% Building Information Model (BIM) files environment, focusing on using Autodesk Revit as its primary platform. To aid in this transition, HH Angus has implemented Matterport digital twins to generate models that allow faster start times and improved collaboration among team members.
Rapidly Capture Spaces
In recent years, HH Angus has captured over 700 spaces in digital twins using its Matterport Pro2 cameras. This modern workflow has led to a reduction in the cost of site surveys by half, as well as a reducing the need for repeat site visits.
The team used the Matterport Pro2 camera to capture mechanical facilities at the Toronto Western Hospital throughout a multi-year, multi-phase project, referring designers, engineers, and owner-operators to the Matterport 3D digital twins throughout the project lifecycle.
Order BIM Files from Matterport Account
When Akira Jones, Director of Digital Services at HH Angus, heard about the new Matterport BIM Files service, he was excited about the potential to accelerate workflows by providing Revit-ready models.
Jones explains that the cost of creating BIM files from scanned data is high, and even outsourcing it can be expensive. With Matterport BIM Files, it is possible to deliver orders for a 20,000-square-foot space within four to five days. And orders for spaces of less than 5,000 square feet are offered in just two to four days.
HH Angus has seen significant improvements in modeling efficiencies using Matterport BIM Files. In addition, the convenience and ease of use are unmatched. The team can quickly and easily order Revit-ready models with just a few clicks in the Matterport portal, saving time and effort during busy periods.
Clients notice the improvements in efficiency and productivity. Ultimately, HH Angus has benefited from the level of detail and accuracy in the models produced by scanning jobs with a Matterport camera to collaborate better and communicate with their customers and project partners.
