Overcoming Challenges of Architecture, Engineering & Construction Teams with FARO Sphere

In today's fast-paced global economy, Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) teams may face numerous challenges when it comes to reality capture, data processing and information sharing, including disconnected operations, limited collaboration and communication, complex workflows, lack of real-time insights, and inefficient project management.

Embracing a cloud-based software platform like  FARO Sphere addresses these challenges, streamlining operations and enabling teams to work more effectively in the fast-paced AEC industry. In this blog, we will explore the features of FARO Sphere and discuss how it supports these professionals.

Efficient Data Exchange and Remote Collaboration:

FARO Sphere serves as a cloud-based information platform, offering AEC professionals the most efficient means of data exchange. By connecting hardware and real-time data, this Software as a Service (SaaS) ecosystem enables seamless collaboration on 3D projects. With the FARO Stream smartphone app, users of the FARO Focus Laser Scanner can pre-register scan data on-site, ensuring data completeness while boosting confidence in the capture process.

Cloud-Based Data Management and Visualization:

At its core, Sphere acts as a powerful data management tool. Leveraging the FARO WebShare Software as the web viewer, users gain the ability to explore and share 3D data captured from reality scans. This data can be compared with CAD or BIM outputs, enabling better insights into design and construction processes. Additionally, Sphere provides access to various customer support platforms offered by FARO, facilitating a seamless user experience.

Streamlined Project Management with Sphere Viewer:

One of the key features of Sphere is the inclusion of Sphere Viewer, a cloud-based solution that consolidates 3D point clouds and HoloBuilder 360° projects in a single platform. This capability is especially valuable for 4D construction management, where the ability to compare elements over time is crucial. By eliminating the need for multiple platforms, project managers and Virtual Design and Construction managers can democratize data and enhance their visualization of 4D data. The result is a streamlined workflow, de-siloed data, and improved ease of use.

Overcoming Challenges and Maximizing Potential:

Implementing a cloud-based software platform like FARO Sphere does come with its own set of challenges. AEC teams may need to adapt to new workflows and processes, and there may be a learning curve associated with the use of the platform. However, the benefits far outweigh the challenges. In summary, by leveraging FARO Sphere, AEC teams can:

- Enhance Collaboration: The real-time data exchange and remote collaboration capabilities foster seamless communication and coordination among team members, regardless of their physical location.

- Improve Decision-Making: Access to comprehensive and up-to-date 3D data allows for better-informed decision-making throughout the project lifecycle. This empowers teams to make timely adjustments and optimize quality, productivity, and profitability.

- Increase Efficiency: The streamlined data management, visualization, and project management tools within Sphere eliminate the need for multiple platforms, reducing complexity and saving valuable time and resources.
