FINALIST - Safer construction or contracting site
FM Conway Structures (FMCS) regularly came across situations where its stakeholders were unable to visualise what FMCS was proposing, grasp the magnitude of clashes with other activities or how it may affect the general public. In addition, they recognised that traditional design packs submitted to clients and operatives, do not utilise the detailed and extensive information gained during the design process.
As part of FM Conway’s innovation strategy, a team was asked to look at opportunities to utilise technology that would enable safer and smarter working. One of the ideas was to explore the capabilities of Microsoft Hololens and how it could be integrated into its business.
HoloLens is an untethered, self-contained holographic headset that allows users to leverage enterprise-ready mixed reality (MR) applications while working “heads-up” and “hands-free.” FMC recognised among many potential applications, HoloLens could be used to make some of the investigation and maintenance work undertaken by Structures safer whilst addressing the issues highlighted above.
