DatuBIM

An interview with Carlos Campo, Project Manager

What is DatuBIM?

A cloud- based software that connects the design model and aerial pictures taken by drone at sequential stages of construction to compare different stages of construction with the design of the facility. At a glance on the computer, the project can be seen as it is built condition and compared with the design.

Some of the benefits DatuBIM brings are:

  • It facilitates the study of the project in a better way to detect any potential issues on an early stage
  • The tool allows to take some measurements directly from the software, such as excavation volumes or surface of paving
  • It helps to organize the project and plan the work ahead, for example traffic switches, erection plans, etc

How has DatuBIM impacted the projects?

The survey team and field engineers are spending less time on the field measuring quantities. If there is any problem on the project, surveryors can take the as-built documents and upload it to the software so we can share that information with the client, which helps in the process of decision making whenever there is any issue on the field.

How does DatuBIM change the way you work?

I was so happy to hear about this tool because previously, I was working on a similar software powered by Google Earth that was useful to help me understand the projects. DatuBIM has way more potential, you can do measurements and implement new designs on it. Plus, it’s a very friendly interface, which means that it can be learned very fast.
