Associates: ASHVIN

LAIA is associated with the ASHVIN consortium, that combines strong R&I players from 9 EU member states with strong expertise in construction and engineering management, digital twin technology, IoT and data security/privacy.

Ahsvin Approach

Approach

To enable the European construction industry to significantly improve its productivity, while reducing cost and ensuring safe work conditions, ASHVIN will provide the first of its kind digital twin platform that will be completely IoT ready and that will be interoperable with a wide range of design and engineering applications. Through this interoperability, the ASHVIN platform will be able to represent as-designed models. At the same time, through the integration with a wide range of sensors (including photogrammetric sensors) a continuous synchronization between the as-designed and the as-built models will be achieved.

Challenges

Productivity
1.

Productivity

Construction productivity needs to be significantly improved and costs reduced.

Global labor-productivity growth in construction has averaged only 1 percent a year over the past two decades. The construction industry is one of the least digitized sectors with flat or falling productivity rates. By 2025 full-scale digitalization will lead to annual global cost savings of 13% to 21% in the design, engineering, and construction phases, and 10% to 17% over the operations phase.


Safety

Current safety levels on construction sites are not acceptable.

Within the EU, construction is by far the most dangerous occupation with an extremely high rate of fatalities compared to all other industries. Safety planning in the construction industry is complicated due to the dynamic nature of the construction environment and the active involvement of various stakeholders.

Technology

Digital twin and IoT technologies are mature and already used on construction sites.

The viability of using digital twin technology and IoT has already been proven in pilot projects. The constant flow of real-time data from IoT sensors combined with historical data from other projects can be used not only in the monitoring of current job sites, but to provide the required historical data for predictive and prescriptive analytics with advanced AI methods.
