Synchro, Microsoft Azure and HoloLens provide immersive construction management solution for Espai Barça sports complex
Synchro, the 4D construction modeling solution recently acquired by Bentley Systems, is being used as part of a mixed reality construction management solution for FC Barcelona’s major renovation to the Espai Barça sports arena, which when completed will accommodate more than 100,000 fans.
In conjunction with time-lapse monitoring footage of the construction site provided by EarthCam, Bentley’s Synchro will help the stadium project team to visualise and compare construction progress with the 4D construction model.
Greg Demchak, technical architect for Bentley, said, “The scope of this project demands that we look for new solutions, and for this, we turned to Microsoft. Using Azure infrastructure, HoloLens technology, and Cognitive Services, multiple users can interact with a holographic representation of the stadium data at any moment in the construction process. We are also leveraging machine learning and on-site images to digitally track actual progress with Synchro.”
