“On one of our most recent projects, a 30,000 square foot building, we had a total of 1,027 points to set and one man, working with the robot, was able to do the work in two days. With our previous methods, that would have taken three days, with a two-man crew. Especially on large buildings, there’s a very clear return on investment.”

The most efficient field-to-office solution for improved speed & layout accuracy

Leica iCON build construction software provides unseen versatility and flexibility for field crews to conduct layout, as-built and verification tasks on projects.

Leica iCON build has you covered no matter where in the building construction process. With smart digital workflows for site preparation, structures (concrete, wood, steel), MEP & HVAC, interiors and exteriors, field crews can layout with speed, performance and accuracy – improving quality, reducing errors & enhancing construction execution.

Download Datasheet

Increase performance and productivity on site with an innovative software design, smart digital workflows and an easy-to-understand interface. Layout more points per day and verify as-built data against design models to speed up project progress and minimize rework and future clash issues.

Easy-to-use interface

Simple to use and easy to master, iCON build enables field crews to put design data to work with a wide range of supported sensors. Using the same, interchangeable user interface results in less training, increased motivation and keeping your investment to a minimum.

Exceptional layout functionality

Connecting to construction cloud services means that field crews always have access to the most reliable design data and models. Laying out on site becomes a simplified process, while millimeter accurate field data and reports can be delivered seamlessly back to design teams for quick decision making and project progress tracking.

Enhance your BIM workflow with Real-Time Point Cloud Verification in Field

Using a 3-step process, the iCON field verification app allows contractors to extend their possibilities through the use of multiple integrated sensors, allowing for easier, more complete and real-time verification on site.

3-Step Workflow

1

Fast collection of as-built data from iCON total station measurements and Leica MS60 MultiStation scan data exactly when you need it. Simple automated workflows enable data capture for all surface types such as pre and post pour of concrete slabs, structures and MEP installations.

Capture

2

Quick real-time calculation of the captured data against design is displayed immediately within the iCON build software highlighting areas out of tolerance for immediate correction in the field.

Verify

3

Highlight out of tolerance areas immediately after verification for in-field corrective measures using the calculated contour lines and points. Final results can be sent back to design teams and project managers along with a PDF verification report for project progress tracking and design updates.

Layout

Unlike other solutions that require the data to be transferred to the office, Leica iCON field software enables field crews to complete complex verification tasks in real-time, on site using single point measurements or point cloud data captured via total station.

With Leica iCON field software, field crews can complete all layout tasks and make infield verification decisions with a single solution – enabling better in-field decision making and faster corrective measures to keep projects on track.

Use Cases & Workflows

  • Analysis for dry/wet concrete pour
  • Slab scanning for surface flatness & analysis
  • Inspect columns, walls & formwork
  • Verification of pre-cast concrete walls before on-site delivery
  • Installation verification on-site
  • Structures verification, concrete, steel & wood
  • Pre-pour documentation, post-tension cable, box outs, sleeves
  • Exteriors & Facades systems

“The very early return on investment on the equipment is being able to find conflicts within the drawings. If I find potential clashes that can impact cost and the schedule months in advance before our guys even get out there, it pays for itself. That in itself is worth the investment in the hardware and software.”

Integrated technology for a more streamlined BIM Layout workflow

iCON Solutions feature connectivity with leading industry software systems to offer construction professionals a more efficient building construction workflow – contributing to a more seamless, streamlined process and data transparency at the jobsite and in the office.

By connecting iCON field software with Autodesk BIM 360 Docs, a construction document management software enabling project members to share construction drawings, documents and models from a centralized platform, customers will be able to create seamless workflows between office and field.

The Autodesk BIM 360 Layout app for iOS/Android provides construction contractors the ability to connect the coordinated model to the field layout and verification process, helping to increase job site productivity while improving the accuracy of staked or installed building components.

The collaboration with Procore Technologies Inc. results in a simplified data flow by giving the users the ability to exchange data between field and office.

A cloud connection between Leica iCON field and Procore’s construction management software allows all connected parties to communicate and document most up-to-date information. The workflow becomes smoother and thus reduces rework and saves time. Field crews can now connect directly on site to project data in the cloud, gaining access to previously inaccessible files. On the other hand, project managers in the office can now track progress of as-built and layout tasks based on true mm accurate field data.

Connect directly to Procore’s construction management solution for:

  • Data exchange via cloud-based services between office and field
  • Straightforward data flow to download the most reliable and up to date design data
  • Direct reporting of as-laid and as-built information from the field to the office.
  • Ability to utilize the Procore app on Windows 10 for further construction documentation
