Sven van Duffelen shows us how to embrace our future
Sven van Duffelen is the UK Channel Manager for GeoSLAM, where he manages the sales growth of the company in key markets such as the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa. With a focus on both the technical and commercial benefits of 3D Mass Data, Sven has empowered distributors and customers alike to unlock and embrace the real value of “Go Anywhere” mobile mapping technology.
Here Sven gives us an insight in to what you can expect from his seminar: Embrace the future, map on the move – and don’t get left behind!
“BIM Level 3 is the game changer” said David Philp, BIM Director (EMEA) for AECOM back in June 2015. And a game-changing situation, currently facing the UK AEC industry, demands game-changing solutions.
The challenges facing the UK construction industry cannot be understated. Increasing pressures from population growth on our transport and infrastructure networks, a desperate need for increased affordable housing, stringent environmental targets, and an extensive building stock in need of maintenance, renewal and modification to be made fit for 21st century requirements – the list goes on.
BIM Level 3 is designed to meet these challenges head-on. A working methodology which embraces whole asset-lifecycle management, collaborative working, commercial models that are fit for the 21st century (paperless systems), ease of use, scalability and interoperability. The beating heart of any mid-large size construction or engineering project is the 3-dimensional BIM model – one which is current, built in an open data format, accessible and understandable by all project stakeholders.
Traditionally, creating these digital models was solely the domain of the professional surveyor, and was often a slow, time-consuming and laborious task – with little or no input from these stakeholders. These professionals want user-friendly, hassle-free technology that is easy to install and use, but is robust and reliable enough to do the job quickly and accurately – and without having to rely on a third party to get the job done. And now, GeoSLAM’s game changing solutions are putting the power into the hands (quite literally) of BIM managers, architects, facilities and asset managers and contractors.
GeoSLAM understands that for AEC professionals to truly embrace digital technology, that technology must be as flexible and intelligent as they are. Technology that requires minimal training, allowing you to get up to speed quickly. Technology that is scalable – that is suitable for surveying residential homes, large-scale industrial facilities and national infrastructure projects. Technology that allows the export of multiple file formats, enabling fast and simple integration with a suite of existing software. Overall, technology that works efficiently – with zero downtime, real-time processing and visualization, and which can reduce your project costs by up to two-thirds.
