Digital engineering, Big Data and IoT to improve our performance and the performance of our clients
Digital engineering forms the backbone of the development of the tools we are using to raise the bar on our performance targets. This includes our commitment to developing BIM (Building Information Modeling), we also look closely into nomad applications making use of virtual reality, enhanced reality, drones, lidar (light detection and ranging), etc. for the different project phases. We focus on tools and technologies of the future such as big data (massive data processing), machine learning, artificial intelligence, linked data (data web), new models of collaborative engineering platforms and additive production (3-D printing).
From Egis's perspective, BIM represents a new approach to ensuring digital continuity in all missions related to a structure, the design of the interior, or an equipment throughout its lifecycle.
Digital modeling, a genuine revolution, is at the heart of design, build and operating processes of structures in today’s engineering world. From the early design phase, BIM allows to make the good choices thanks to interactive simulation and the reversibility of all chosen solutions. The interoperable software of BIM fosters collaboration and communication between all parties involved, thus enhancing wide project cohesion. From digital data integration to 3D visuals, the parties dispose of new tools to increase their productivity (cost and time management) and to improve the technical and energetic performance of infrastructures.
At Egis, we consider BIM (Building Information Modeling) to be a genuine corporate project. Committed to research, internal training and promotion of innovation with players in the construction industry, Egis takes the lead in this digital revolution in France and abroad, in the areas of buildings, architecture, engineering, civil engineering and civil works.
Through its active participation in research networks and programs (Mediaconstruct, MINnD), the group actively participates in structuring the exchange of information, in defining a standardized data model, developing new tools and in specifying collaborative platforms between all players in the construction industry. Being a preceptor, Egis recommends the use of BIM from the earliest project stage onwards.
By means of an extensive internal training program, Egis forms renowned in-house experts and teams specialized in the BIM management. After successful implementation in the area of buildings, Egis is now actively promoting the use of BIM and its applications in all areas of construction.
