XYZ Reality, a pioneering UK-based construction industry augmented reality (AR) company, and SmarTwin™, a New York-based digital twin technology advisory, have announced their USA alliance.
After a successful early access program, deploying their technology across projects in the UK and Europe, XYZ Reality is entering the US market and bringing their Augmented Reality solution, HoloSite, across the Atlantic. The SmarTwin team will play an integral role in sourcing and securing a wide range of deployment opportunities for the state-of-the-art AR tool’s usage across the construction sector.
View and position BIMs on-site to millimeter accuracy
HoloSite facilitates the on-time and on-budget delivery of construction projects by enabling management teams to view and position building information models (BIM) on-site to millimeter (mm) accuracy. The system helps construction workers position objects to within construction tolerances, immediately seeing when something is out of alignment. Being the first of its kind custom-built solution for the construction industry it is making waves and construction teams have already seen success across the mission critical and complex projects market, i.e. data centers, pharmaceutical facilities and airports.
SmarTwin Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ken D’Amato stated, “We are extremely impressed with XYZ Reality’s purpose-built for construction, trend-setting Engineering-Grade AR technology that we believe is a gamechanger for large construction industry projects. HoloSite’s certified AR hardhat, cloud platform, proprietary software and other key features facilitate accurately positioning 3D design models on construction sites, enabling teams to build it right, first time.”
Mohammad Daudi, VP Sales at XYZ Reality said, “After seeing success in the UK and European markets, we are prioritizing XYZ Reality’s US expansion and SmarTwin is a critical partner in further expanding our geographic footprint into this all-important territory. Their diverse and deep industry experience with building information modeling (BIM) and digital twinning was a key reason for joining forces with Ken and his colleagues.”
