We need your support!
We want to intelligently detect the use of formwork on construction sites using camera-based methods. This requires a large image dataset that depicts formwork elements during transport, assembly and disassembly to develop a detection model for localization using machine learning.
This will enable a comparison between design and execution. But lots of images are needed to train an AI.

Paul Und Philippe

With the help of a laser scanner, we recently measured some bridges in Münster. During the exchange of experiences on site, representatives of the city of Münster and partners from the RekoTi project were present at times. The technical survey was carried out by Paul Hanswillemenke and Philippe Piras. Both are student employees at the IIB. They talk about their experiences in the interview.

With the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in Germany, more and more construction projects are being planned and executed with the help of three-dimensional, digital building models. This also includes the use of digital processes for handling administrative procedures under building planning and building regulations law. The potential of a BIM-based building permit was recognised at an early stage by the City of Dortmund, the NRW state government and by |DA| Drahtler Architekten and the company Louis Opländer Heizungs- und Klimatechnik GmbH and transferred to the joint research project on the BIM-based building application. The report on the first BIM-based building permit in NRW and the video on the BIM-based building application have now been published.
