AI-Powered BIM for Clients Series – Data-driven Decision Analytics

Data-driven Decision Analytics for Onsite Risk Mitigation!

Every construction project inherently involves various risks. These include the likes of quality, safety, time, and cost. The scale of the project directly correlates with the magnitude of the risk that may be involved, especially when multiple contractors are working on-site at the same time.

At Pentagon, we understand these inherent challenges and risks associated with every construction project. These all play a critical role that can significantly impact the success of a project.

Combining Building Information Modelling (BIM) with Artificial Intelligence (AI) has proven that data-driven decision analytics have the potential to significantly transform the construction industry, providing enhanced insights, improved efficiency, and better risk mitigation strategies for the client’s project.

Through advanced technologies like the Internet of Things, organisations have been able to utilise BIM with AI to complete predictive analytics for data-driven decision-making.

Integrating IoT into your project provides a way of moving that one step closer to producing a true digital twin of the project. BIM models contain valuable information about the construction project while AI technology assists in effectively integrating and analysing this data; Pentagon has been able to assist in the initial setup of this, providing a bridge between IoT, AI, and the high-fidelity data required for successful project completion.

Utilising high-fidelity data for any project is key when assessing previous, current, and future projects. Pentagon has been able to analyse and optimise this data for clients and contractors to highlight key pitfalls from these projects, allowing for adjustments to be made at the planning, construction, and installation phases.

Enhancing Clash Detection

One of the benefits of AI-powered tools is the creation of interactive, 3D visualisations. These visualisations help clients gain a better understanding of the project, identify potential risks, and make informed decisions before ever getting onsite.

The integration of AI and BIM software allows for the automatic identification of clashes among different building components. This eliminates time-consuming manual quality assurance processes that previously would have been completed on-site. This has enabled early conflict detection allowing for improved scheduling and planning of the project.

Through rule-based detection, this system follows predefined rules and guidelines that encompass industry standards, building codes, and project-specific requirements. Through analysis of digital models, these AI systems can highlight potential clashes, empowering construction teams to address issues proactively before they escalate into costly problems during construction.

The AI system not only identifies these clashes, but also proposes automated resolution strategies. These strategies may involve automatically adjusting clash-prone elements or generating alternative design options that still meet the project requirements. This simplification of the clash detection resolution process results in reducing the necessity for manual intervention, with previous projects being prone to delays due to poor planning or human error.

Risk Mitigation

Through the utilisation of AI-based predictive analytics, project teams can optimise construction schedules and assess risks before they happen on-site.

AI systems allow the project team to anticipate these potential risks and proactively implement mitigation strategies.

On-site risks include:

  • Resource Management Issues
  • Scheduling Issues
  • Installation Issues
  • Health And Safety Issues
  • Record-Keeping information

By analysing these various factors alongside project complexity, environmental conditions, and other risk data, AI systems identify potential issues before they can escalate. Optimising available resources can quickly reduce waste and prevent shortages, resulting in cost savings and enhanced productivity throughout the project.

Pentagon can take your current and previous project data to identify these recurring issues. High-fidelity data plays a key role in finding what areas need to be addressed in-house, onsite, or other external factors. Through our in-house development Team, we have developed a Construction Intelligent software that utilizes this information seamlessly.  

Project Information is already readily available, through comparison reports, project schedules, and construction processes, we can assess this data a create an optimized project dashboard. Understanding and presenting this information is critical to making the proper changes for your organization.
