Nemetschek Group announces strategic investment in Imerso

By Catrin Jones04 January 2022

Norway-based technology company, Imerso, is offering a next-generation platform to automate construction quality monitoring through a combination of advanced artificial intelligence (AI), reality capture, and BIM (Building Information Modelling) technologies.

The solution enables everyday use of industry-grade 3D scanners on site. The scanners capture the as-built status throughout the construction phase with point clouds – a collection of 3D data points that digitise real-life physical spaces, such as buildings, floors, or rooms.

Imerso’s cloud-based platform automatically analyses the captured 3D scan data against the plan in BIM. 

Combining AI and advanced computer vision, it highlights and lists in real-time any relevant work deviations or issues, so these can be resolved through re-planning or fixes on site.

By connecting the BIM model directly to the as-built snapshot on the actual site, Imerso delivers an efficient roadmap for accurate, as-built digital twins. 

Combining the technologies of Solibri and Imerso mens that owners, engineers, and contractors, can monitor the progress and quality of work on-site at a detailed level and produce reliable final client deliverables for the management of the facility.

“This is a tremendous step in our journey, as we continue scaling our solution with some of the leading players in our industry. Partnering with the Nemetschek Group is rocket fuel for us to leverage their deep roots in the construction sector and in-depth knowledge, and to accelerate the go-to-market strategy of our technology,” said Frederico Valente, founder and CEO of Imerso.
