UK: The latest HoloLens OS update (RS4) has yielded some massive benefits for BIM Holoview users. While the performance and projection stability have both noticeably improved, the biggest benefit for BIM Holoview has been the increased memory capacity. This has enabled us to increase the size of the Autodesk® Revit® and Navisworks® files that BIM Holoview processes, meaning that more building services and larger areas can now be viewed. This improvement compliments the other two key features of BIM Holoview: (1) accurate positioning of models to within 2cm which enables visual verification of the exact placement of structural elements and services, and (2) the transparency mode which allows the layers of a building, and hidden structure and services to be visualized.
Design and construction mistakes currently cost the non-residential construction industry approximately US $49 billion per year. BIM Holoview aims to reduce these costs by around 50%, meaning that the average potential savings for a construction company could be $1.4 million per year (and $24.5 billion for the industry overall). Users also benefit from increased productivity due to the comprehensive understanding that viewing models on-site provides – evident in construction of the Park Hyatt Auckland
