This presentation will review how 360º photography is rapidly changing the way DPR Construction documents both existing conditions and ongoing progress on job sites. We will discuss new workflows related to progress documentation and its benefits. For example, we'll cover scheduling of documentation on a weekly and/or milestone basis to enable virtual quality assurance/quality control walks with architects, engineers, and inspectors. We'll also review workflows for capturing conversations that revolve around actual project locations to assist with radio frequency interference (RFI) creation. We will discuss use for risk mitigation, including documenting existing conditions for design planning/bidding, as well as capture of MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) rough-in before dry-wall and ceiling close up. We'll then discuss various integrations of 360º photos with Navisworks software and BIM 360 Field software. We will examine these workflows in the context of their implementation across various types of DPR projects, ranging from large tech companies and medical facilities, to small tenant improvement projects
- Understand the benefits of 360° photos compared to alternative reality capture methods
- Understand best practice, 360, and photoscheduling/logistical workflows
- Learn how to develop requirements for client deliverables
- Discover workflows between 360° photos and various Autodesk products
