Using Robotic Tech to Check BIM Models

LSI teamed up with Kier to welcome Scaled Robotics to the site of our £22M Harris Academy scheme for a demonstration of their pioneering robotic technology.

The robot, named Forge, can be used for setting out and checking the 3D BIM model.

The technology  scans the construction site, collecting data which is then automatically processed to an online viewer for comparison against the design model, giving potential workflow benefits for both the site and design teams.

Here’s a short video of the robot in action!
