Texas A&M is the largest university in the US, with 70,000 students and an ever-changing campus in College Station. The university has $1.5B in development and construction projects expected through 2027. Their construction and renovation teams needed to provide greater visibility to the facilities teams to maintain 3D As Designed vs. As Built. This is what Reconstruct delivers at every stage of each project’s lifecycle.
Texas A&M’s construction team acts as an owner’s representative for the Texas A&M Board of Regents – the entity that approves and owns the university’s capital projects. With hundreds of simultaneous projects under management, the team is always looking for a better way to capture percent complete and project quality while keeping all stakeholders aligned.
Reconstruct empowers Texas A&M teams in managing time-stamped documentation, quality control, and stakeholder visibility on multiple projects, most recently a 4-story, 83,000-square-foot facility slated for completion in November 2024.
By utilizing reality capture from an existing drone, 360° camera, or laser scan, Reconstruct produces a realistic, measurable model of the as-built conditions of any site that can be overlaid with design drawings and BIM models for seamless comparison of planned design to the as-built. What does this mean for Texas A&M:
In under an hour a week, a project team member can walk the site with a 360° camera, capture and upload footage into Reconstruct, and deliver unprecedented access to a realistic site walk experience for all stakeholders.
Inside of Reconstruct, they can compare any available designs to reality at every stage of the project.
During construction, handoff, and operation, Texas A&M has complete as-built documentation for every building using Reconstruct—knowing where and when everything was installed on what date.
