Track Every Phase of your Project with DroneDeploy and Avvir

October 6, 2022

DroneDeploy is proud to announce that we have partnered with Avvir to bring your team a better way to track construction progress.

Gone are the days of manually comparing project photos against your building information modeling (BIM). This integration enables your team to automate the process of quantifying & tracking project progress over the course of the construction event, using 360 Walkthrough reality capture from DroneDeploy and artificial-intelligence-driven BIM analysis from Avvir.

As a result, your team can benefit from enhanced workflows that reduce rework and ensure every phase of your project stays on track and within budget.

Side-by-side comparison for objective, BIM-based progress reporting

How Does the Integration Work?

DroneDeploy and Avvir make project management and progress tracking easier by enabling your team with intelligent Progress 4D and 5D tracking software that uses images captured from the ground to accurately detect changes from one 360 walkthrough capture to another. This comparison is then paired up against your project’s schedule and BIM to identify the current state of your project and how it matches the expected completion model for each phase.

Gain Full Project Visibility from Bid to Completion

Avvir’s AI progress tracking and DroneDeploy’s 360 Walkthrough give your project managers, superintendents, VDC teams and architects the insights they need to realize faster results and gain clearer day-to-day visibility. Thanks to automated processing in Avvir, you’ll be able to speed up your existing workflows, improving the accuracy of your estimates according to your BIMs. At the same time, this detailed view of work progression can ensure that every phase of the project remains on budget — helping you catch issues early and reducing the possibility for overspend.

Additionally, you can save time by avoiding hours spent reviewing project photos and estimating project completion for MEP, framing structural, or other building components. With Avvir’s cloud-based software, stakeholders have remote access to view project progression without ever having to visit in person. DroneDeploy and Avvir provide you with the tracking solutions you need to prevent critical path delays and improve financial visibility for all stakeholders, throughout every phase of construction.  

DroneDeploy provides more than just 360 Walkthroughs and can act as your all-in-one tool for project inspection. On the ground, you’ll be able to take advantage of full reality capture using everything from mobile phones to ground robots to inspect every inch of your job site with a fine-toothed comb. In the air, DroneDeploy empowers you to use drone technology to gain a bird’s eye view of your entire project, ensuring pinpoint accuracy of your projects from the initial bid to completion.

Our integration with Avvir is in a closed beta, please reach out to our customer success manager for more information.
