The project was planned with a limit on the waste generation of 25 kg per m2 maximum during the construction period, through the use of modern methods and technologies.
This way the team was able to create detailed and precise construction drawings, identify areas to further improve efficiency and sustainability, and closely monitor the work execution with digital construction tools.
Constructing an office building that is sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, and delivered on a tight schedule was a challenging task. Betonmast was tasked with marrying the project’s sustainability goals with the client's desire for a transparent glass building.
The project demanded complicated and technically-advanced solutions, with complex installations placing high demands on work execution. In particular, structural openings and recesses were highlighted as critical components to be built in accordance with the project’s BIM specifications. This is in order to avoid any errors leading to rapid escalations of costs from delays and replanning.
Challenges in construction quality control
In a typical construction project, up to 95% of all built elements aren't fully checked. According to Betonmast, such overlooked errors can increase project costs by on average €15.000 per issue.
With over 100 people working onsite at the same time during the COVID-19 pandemic, the teams found it critical to closely track As Built progress through frequent construction quality control inspections, and avoiding costly surprises.
Betonmast needed a construction software solution that required little presence on the construction site and no work interruptions, while providing full oversight of the construction status with millimetre-precise control.
Automatic As Built Inspections with Laser Scanning
Betonmast had used the Imerso for construction quality control in previous projects, where the combination of easy laser-scanning routines and automated As Built inspections had proven to be a game-changer.
Matilde R. Belsvik, Project Leader at GT5, and Betonmast’s Head of Innovation Magnus Bjørndal Jacobsen implemented Imerso’s scan inspections as part of the project’s routine quality control processes.
