About the talk
Brett Settles, Global Director of Customer Success, Revizto
Greg Keller, Director of Sales, Revizto
Building projects have become now more complex than ever before, due to a lot of information coming and the necessity to share it with multiple parties. As a result, it’s easy for misunderstandings to arise, that may lead to additional costs and loss of time. Moreover, each -unit uses different coordination tools on each stage of the project, and you have to bare costs again - for different software and training.
Project teams are in need for one platform where project teams collaborate and share information throughout the whole building lifecycle - be it BIM, plans, markups, photos, project documents or VR.
This session will explore solutions for seamless integration across platforms, getting easy access to 3D environment and 2D sheets for project teams without the need for additional licenses of Navisworks or Revit. Learn how to change the way the teams interact with models, having replaced old methods by new and more effective ones to collaborate and build.
17 years experience implementing, managing, teaching, and using new technology in Geospatial, Mining, and AEC. Dedicated design and construction technologist looking to use data, emerging technology and innovative workflows to better the experiences of those in design, fabrication and construction.View the profile
Alright, welcome back. I hope you're having an awesome time. So far. Next up. Our session is titled. How owners developer and developers gain insight into product delivery and FM. This will be brought to you by two. Incredible speakers from Rio Vista. Please join me in welcoming them to our virtual stage. Hello everybody. Give me one second here as I share my screen. Hello, everybody. Thanks for joining us today. We've got a lot of information to share with you guys and it really only a small window to fit in, but we're really excited to
have an audience with you guys as the top real estate development companies in North America. My name is Greg Keller, North American Sales director with risto, and I'm pleased to be joined by my colleague, that settles, who is our Global director of customer success. Today. We're going to be discussing how the industry that is architecture engineering construction and owners and more, specifically, you all as real estate developers need to have access to solutions that provide you and your project stakeholders with a cinegration across that. The many disparate
platforms that are used throughout the the building life cycle to, you know, ensure proper communication and collaboration. Bravo project deliveries throughout that entire building lifecycle joke in this session. We're going to bring to light. A revista was indeed that one integrated collaboration platform as we like to call ourselves that you truly need to replace. All those older disconnected, methods with new real-time ways to collaborate on 2D drawings 3D models. Point clouds for existing conditions, 360 photos, drone
data, red lines, markups, virtual reality, and more. So that is what we will be covering today and not just for project delivery and in gaining an oversight into that. But then also how you can use revista Downstream to to have that contextual environment for facilities and asset management, and in the end, one more of, of that side, so we'll kick things off your just add some background on some of our existing customers in the real estate. Common space in real related and related Beal are two of them that the
bigger developers that we've had the pleasure of working with over the last couple of years, along with some other big names. If you guys can see here, both here in North America and abroad. But I wanted to put this quote from from Nick Proto at related companies here on the slide. Because I think it does really paint a great picture as to, you know, where the value comes in, for Real Estate developers leveraging, rivest. Do you know? Ultimately there's there's an increased expectations for you guys to manage many
different projects. And in those projects are obviously super complex these days. And one of the projects that we head to the benefit of using resistor on with related, was there 50 Hudson Yards Project in Manhattan and you know, just order the size and complexity of the The aggressive project schedule, you do. They really embraced for this note to bring all of those project stakeholders together both on the design side and then on the construction site as well. So just wanted to show you guys a few few of our existing customers here on that real estate development
side. So when you look at some of the challenges that the you guys in in the real estate development, industry are facing, you know, regarding design and construction and in hand off of your project, you know, there are so many different platforms that that that you have to be working my frightened and how often do you guys laughed at Insight on to what where I am in in the design? You know, what am I going to be happy with what's getting design. Am I going to be happy with what's getting constructed right here. You don't have the most case, you don't have that that access to
that model and all that is associated intelligent data. That's going to make sure that you're happy with. Project. And then you talk about how your design and construction teams deliver that project and how, how desperate, how the disparate silos coming to play when you talk about communication, you know, rabbit and navisworks in AutoCAD and thecla and SketchUp in Excel. Spreadsheets and PDFs in emails and text messages. There's there's no way to detect, you know, combine all them together so that way, nothing slips through the cracks. So, you know, that that really
talks about the twin Silo add method of communication, the lack of the integrated platform throughout those. You know, throughout the industry. And then again, you no problems communicating that design intent to you guys to make sure that you are really satisfied with what they're delivering for you. So those are some of the challenges that you guys face and then some of the things that were this. So does to too, obviously Do those challenges you talked about having one single platform that you can go to not just you guys as the owners, but also of your design, in your
construction and Engineering teams, won Central hub for all that intelligent Bim data and the sheets that come along with that has centralized place to to track all of your issues both ends and all the way from schematic design, all the way through construction and hand up. I'm having a platform that you guys can have no matter where you are when you want to access it. Whether it's, you know, in an office on a laptop or it's out in the field on an iPad, you're having that one platform that you can, then you can entrust that is that brings everybody together having that 2D 3D
intelligence energy, right? So you have to have your your drawings that you guys are are used to working off of and then you have the 3D model. So really, no, other platform. Quite doesn't like revista, where were able to marry those two. Together and then also, you don't have it connected to alive, and data environments Downstream. And then also a true to scale immersive VR experience. So, you know, one of those, the hot buttons for a lot of developers these days is to be able to, you know, slap a headset on and be able to intelligently walk through the space and
truly gain that, that contacts. So, those are some of the solutions that reduce them songs. So what I'm going to do is get into a demo Aristo from the design and construction side, and show you guys how you are, as developers can really gain that unmitigated access to, to an intelligent platform like Aristo. So, just give me a second here and I'll share my screen. K. So, here we are in Rio Vista. Now, this is revista was built off of the a game engine technology, the
Unity gaming platform. So you know it by Nature, it is a very lightweight easy-to-use user-friendly model where it you know, in the past if one of your designers are contractors is giving you a a rabbit model or naviswork model or giving you to tsheets, you know, those are obviously nice to have if you can get them but it's very difficult for you guys, really to to gain the exes that you want in there. So realistic does provide that democratize access to the model, the sheets and all the associated intelligence files that that come along with that.
Do what I'm going to do is just give you guys a quick breakdown of some of the ways that you can navigate this model, gain access to the intelligent data, around the model, be able to hop around certain views quickly and then also be able to communicate your own design. Ideas to your email, to your Downstream project, stakeholders, then I'll hand it off to Brett and he'll talk more on the, the facilities management and asset management. So you don't show you guys a quick way to be able to navigate through the model, you know, keep in mind. This is a massive model where we brought in, you
know, all kinds of file types, whether it be rather good, models civil 3D models SketchUp model Point cloud data. So, you know, you can see that I'm able to and it may not come as clear to you guys being over the resume meeting. But you know what, this is a massive model that I can really, you know fly around with with ease and everything in this model is going to be intelligent. Data comes through with that. Right? So every single item or object that I double-click on, I can get access to all of that intelligent metadata, right? So, you know again, it's it's very quick and lightweight to be
able to jump around this model. You know what? We want to be able to answer size that, you know, you don't want to feel intimidated that you've got this massive modeling thing. And, how do I get around in and where do I go? Right? So some of the things that we've got in place here are tools that allow you to jump around that model without having to physically go through that entire model, especially if you're talking about a campus like this or a 50-story high-rise, you know that I can take a while. So one of the things that I like to jump right into is leveraging the to tsheets that you
guys are probably all accustomed to and using that as a way to get comfortable and use that as a transition into being able, to better view that 3D model. So here I am in r2d section of resisto. This is where all of your drawings and other Associated to the documents come come from in our. How do I find open up this sheet here? This is our second floor space plan as you can see which I'm sure we're all you is probably what you're used to looking at, right? Well, one of the things that we are able to do to allow you guys to get from point A to point B in in really the click of a button
and use this to D that you're comfortable with as that way to transition into 3D is our navigate to 3D button. So if I'm in the space and I want to be able to hop into this office, I can simply click the 3D bottle up here and that allows me to just single click wherever I want to go and instantly. It takes me to that room in the 3D model. So again, when I talked to her earlier about the power of that 2D and 3D model Synergy, here's a perfect example of that. Where is you know, you guys are undoubtedly used to looking at a dumb PDF,
that doesn't have the intelligence with it. Now. Did the Judy in Inverness, do cherries, win it. All that intelligence, including the x y z coordinate. That's what allows us to to be able to use those drawings as a way to get to that spot in the 3DS. Right. And then once I'm in there you can see how I can use my the right button, my mouse to just simply look around, you know, click on objects, gain access to that metadata take measurements and it and then I'll come back to that one other thing. I want to focus on to with Tudy that truly bridges that Gap and and really brings
to light the 2D 3D model Synergy. Is this intelligent overly. So again, no better way to illustrate the fact that we can intelligently tie, your 2D drawings in your 3D models to life. With the studio Verlaine. This is probably Far and Away, the most utilized feature when you have people that are trying to make that transition and and gain that insight into in a going from leveraging, the Tudy information into the intelligent 3D model. So that's really, you know, when you talk about the easiest way to, to gain that intelligence and and make that transition this
to the overlay is certainly Are the main features and keep in mind, this is not anything that you guys would have to or your, your Downstream project. Stakeholders have to spend a ton of time setting up. This. All comes with the intelligent export from a rabbit Mom. Okay? So jumping back now that we've got Illustrated the the way to go from 2D to 3D. I'm going to now focus into back into our 3D model and you don't really show you guys a couple other ways to be able to get around the model and talk about your issue creation and in how you're
able to see that in in and provide that design intent or or gain access to those those issues as you move about the project. So couple other quick things you points for these can be preset up. They can be brought in from Reddit, from Nana's work. But you do a whole folder structure of you points that allows us to really jump from point-to-point. There's also, you know, we have the ability to leverage Point Cloud. So if I go into, let's see forgot what it's at the very top Dragon. The very top folder.
You can see how it instantly takes me from one spot in the model to this intelligent View. And I and I want we wanted to use this for you to show you guys again the power of Aristo and in all the file types are able to bring into one environment. So we went from working through a, an intelligent rabbit or navisworks model. Here in Reverse go to a point Cloud. So especially when you guys are talking about retrofix and in seeing how your new building design is going to fit on top of, or within an existing structure or whether you just want to have that point Cloud, reality capture
to monitor the progress of the ongoing construction. You have the ability to do that in Reverse go. And, and again, it's super lightweight and easy-to-use and fly through this. So, you have a massive mechanical room here, but I'm able to To really fly through with ease and you can see how light waited. Additionally, now that were in here. We talked about things, like being able to section cut right? So let me undo that or know what happened there. There we go. I'm so being able to just quickly, you know, cut a section plan inside of that intelligent modeler that
point Cloud space. Being able to come in and and take measurements. When we click out of this, be able to measure right. Whether it's, you know, Point Cloud file, whether it's to an inventor file to Revit, violin, navisworks file, we can come in here and and do measurements. Okay, so I clicked on the wrong thing again and check the screen, grab the measurement tools so I can grab our measurement. And again, we have a few different ways to measure inside of resisto. This one being a laser ruler where it'll just be automatically Brad, two sides
of two surfaces that are recognized. I can also do point-to-point, point-to-point measurements, minimum distance measurements, spot, elevation slope elevation. So, all these tools are able to be done in revista, really with these and, and then again in Is democratized in a way where that the learning curve is virtually nothing. You don't have to be a power user, you know, technically in Revit Hernandez words to be able to do that in Reverse though and then real quick with it with a minute or so that I have left before I turn it over to Brett's, I want to talk briefly about our
issue tracker here. So, you know, when you talk about that that siloed communication method, the e-mails back and forth the screenshots that the PDFs, you know, what are your project stakeholders delivering to you as a way to to keep you in the loop. As far as where things stand, you know, what issues are being worked through. What programs are what Avenue do you have to to come in here and then communicate what you want to your Downstream stakeholder? So this is a single, you know, invented issue tracker that allows us to have everything in one place and it removes
those data silos. And it, it brings it all into this intelligent issue. Acranet then ties it automatically to those 2D documents and those 3D models in one Fell Swoop. So you can see in this example here. We had actually a sheet over late with her and intelligence section kind of the 3D model. You know, this is our Mark of you, but if I come here, if it brings me to that live view of the 3D model in that section cut, but it also doesn't allow me to see where that issue. Resolved on any 2D drawing of aware of that, that shares that x y z coordinate. So, you can
see how I can click on this to d section here and not just this one first floor, space plan, but also first floor mechanical, because it has that same x y z coordinate. So again, this gives you guys the the ability to come in CDs issues in 2D or 3D or create these issues for that matter, do it. If you're if you're in this drawing real quick and you want to be able to, you know, maybe communicate to your to your architects. You know, you want your two doors here. Let's say what I can do is come in with our stamp functionality and you don't find whatever pre-formatted stamp that I
have here, which are intelligent one, click issue creation and just drop a stamp here. So I'm going to take this comments to architecture stamp drop it right on the the location to the store. And not what I can do is just say, you know, I would like Two door is here. And now you've instantly made that communication directly to your your Prime design architect and and they can instantly see that. That issue not just here in Modesto, but also natively back into rabbit. So, I know, I might my time is is pretty much up. So with that being said, I'm going to
now transition this over to Brett settled and he's going to talk a little bit deeper into the issue tracking and it how you can leverage it for handoff and and with facilities management. Tell Brett take out. Thank you, Greg. Yeah, absolutely. I'm going to run through a few slides myself before we dive into the project. So we'll get this open and get him present mode. So what I used to do for a living as this, I used to work for an EPC. I'm firm. Now for most of you you don't develop real estate like this, but this I
uses example, because it was really important for the owner to always be connected to what we were doing. And so as we work through a project lifecycle, you'll notice it as the real estate developers, the owners of these buildings. I mean you really have a stake in every part of this process from the first napkin sketch all the way to commissioning, right, where you decide to take the building over. And what we have found is is when we put this in place with a lot of our owners, they found it, very enlightening to be able to be part of the development of their building. Understand that
they always have insight into each and every phase do for At the beginning, phases of the project, we would have been talkin about occupational requirements. Right? What do the maintenance Crews need to be able to do their job? How can they access to critical systems of the building in Hospital project? We would say, alright to the or nurses have access to everything they need by doing that in an immersive environments and you do all sorts of Occupational parts. That allowed that designed to really fit the needs of what your building and the people that are going to occupy
the real estate that you're developing. And then of course, after we figure out what the design intent of your building as we jump into the coordination part of it, and this is the really technical part of the process between the people who are building or buildings your general contractors or subcontractors and the people that designed the building and what's really important about there is there can be some critical changes that happened in this process that are technically could. What are not what you want as the person, or the people, or the
group, that is actually doing this building. And we have found that with your Insight. We were able to deliver a better product because you were constantly in tune with the developed. The deliverables that we were producing. Sorry. I've been talking all day. And then, once that happens, we go into construction, right? In this is where your building starts to become a reality. A real asset that you have to do, then, take care of. You have two cell spaces inside of it yet to make sure make sure that its operating at a high level. And a lot of that comes down to what
construction and stalls during that process. So what happens is, is this, keeps you connect it. It allows you to head off any problems that you're having in that process. Now as we jump through and let's make sure I can. Jump over here doing that 211 thing. Other thing to point out to is that, you know, one of them, the biggest are two of the biggest things that you talk about when when you're getting a successful project delivery is trying to, you don't reduce both the time that it takes to get out to build that project and reduce the as
many errors on site as you can. And all the, all the things that I've shown so far, that bread is talking about is, is really geared towards exactly that having that one platform where everybody is, is communicating together throughout the entire lifecycle to wear those. Those on inside errors in that time. It gets spent is greatly reduced. Greg's exactly corrected and, you know, some of our larger projects that we've been working on. This has really been an accelerant do those projects. We worked on a very large NFL stadium out, west, that ended up under budget and three months early and a
lot of that was because of the way that they put this information together and the way they communicated with their owners who were very involved in the building of the structure and then, as we get out of the design and construction phase, right? And that could contractor begins to give you a occupant. See then you have to operate that building, right? And the better information that you get from your designers and your contractors, in the way that you leverage that can play heavily into the way that you can operate the building through the life cycle. And that I think that that's a
really important aspect. Because as we get into that, while we're not a true facilities management system, one of the things that we do really well. How is his we distribute and track tasks that have to happen in a building? Right? The FM system says this, this room needs to be painted. How are we going to track that that gets accomplished? Who are we going to sign that too? And if they find any problems or three painting that room, how do they communicate that back to you? So we're vistos really operating as a as a communication pull that sits on top of your f---ing
database that allows you to actually use that intelligence information to give your cruise more contextual information about the building that they're basically maintaining. One of the things that I want to point out here on this. Is that while everyone in this room, may not understand how their buildings get built. I definitely do and there are massive variations in the type of data that is used actually produce your buildings before they get built. And what were Visto does for you. Is it a How's your designers contractors in fabric, caters to bring all that
data together so that you can see it in an easy-to-use format. But also so that you can use that data after your contractor isn't designers are all gone. And you're on your own. And I think that that's a really important aspect as well and I was supposed to go to the software. So I apologize. Final point to that. I want to make bread is in a you guys as real estate developers. You guys should be. You guys are the ones that get your control and and mandate what you want as a final deliverable and in the case of related companies in University of West,
England and Smithsonian. They were mandating hate. We went over this bill novel as are deliverable. So this gives you everything that you need in one spot that you can then have for that close out and in Facilities Management along the way. Yes. Chocobo final things about this that go above and beyond. What what Greg said is that if you have technology professionals that are working in your real estate company or not. All of this intelligent data is available and, you know, to give a real quick example, cuz they know we're coming up on time. You know, everything is an asset, you own all of
this, everything from this chair to that staircase. All has to be managed by the real estate company and retrieving information about these objects. As I dive in here is very easy, right? You start talking to your interior designer. This isn't the chair. This isn't the finish that we wanted for our cafeteria, and I want you to change them. And that's something that you may have not even known until you seen the chair sitting there when you walked into your building for the first time. Now, imagine scaling that everything inside of your building from statues to you. No
existing. Yeah. Rooms that they have been added on or any aspect that you have Wi-Fi router, having all that information is critical to get into the FM system and is also critical and communicating to your maintenance Crews and your occupants. What exactly this information is. Awesome. Thank you for the audience is time for you to make your way to your next session and along the way makes? You accept your connection request as well as check out her amazing exhibits. Thanks so much and will see you around. Thank you.
