3D Virtual Reality and Visualization

During the due diligence process, our team delivers enhanced project understanding through the EMJ Smart Site package. These real-time visualizations allow our clients to make the most informed decisions possible. Rather than relying on outdated, inaccurate site elevation data, EMJ delivers clients real-time information that provides topographic measurements at an accuracy of up to half an inch. EMJ Smart Site



CAPTURE • Utilize LiDAR technology and/or photogrammetry software ANALYZE • Utilize Pix 4D or similar software to analyze the data • Upload and format data • Export topographic files to CAD • Run earthwork calculations

EMJ presents project stakeholders with panoramic views and virtual topographic mapping of the construction site. The team repeats this process throughout the construction progress and presents real-time project updates to the client.

Volumetric cut and fill data can also be provided.

BENEFITS Project stakeholders’ enhanced knowledge in the earliest stages of the construction process facilitates consistent goals and understanding. Enhanced Smart Site visualization creates accurate, detailed cut and fill analysis regardless of geographic location. Visual validation of the project schedule (as it relates to billing) makes the construction process more efficient and cost-effective.


Topographic data received through publicly available satellite imagery is not always up to date. Relying on this data has the potential to increase cost and risk on a project. Using EMJ Smart Site technology eliminates this risk.


During renovations or additions to existing buildings, drawings may be unavailable or inaccurate. EMJ provides clients with vital information by using laser scanning instead of traditional surveying or hand measurement methods to create accurate, updated existing conditions drawings. Laser Scanning Existing Building Conditions



COORDINATE • Schedule time to scan facility • Plan scanning location(s) CAPTURE • Facilitate clear lines of sight • Calibrate the laser scanning equipment to achieve the client’s goals • Scan the site PROCESS • Import into Revit or CAD software to produce drawings and 3D models

EMJ gives project stakeholders an accurate, complete set of drawings and/or 3D models that reflect current site and building conditions in the most timely and cost-effective way possible.

BENEFITS Drawings are completely accurate with no historical errors or omissions that can hinder the design process. Laser scanning is much faster and efficient than traditional surveying practices and yields better results. Accuracy far surpasses levels attained through traditional surveying. Laser scanning gives the ability to view areas that may otherwise be difficult to reach by traditional surveying methods.


Accurate drawings from 3D scanning can reduce total project costs by as much as 7% and the schedule by as much as 10% on construction projects.

Value 82% of US-based Contractors consider BIM activities to be a top pre-construction activity.

McGraw Hill Construction, Business Value of BIM for Construction in Global Markets, 2014


Traditional project schedule documents can be complex and subjective based on the reader. By merging the 3D model with project schedule activities, the planned construction sequence comes to life through 3D images and videos. Many clients find value in using this visual scheduling technique in conjunction with traditional project scheduling techniques. 4D Scheduling



CREATE EMJ obtains or creates both a detailed 3D model and a project schedule showing the proposed sequence of construction. VISUALIZE Objects within the 3D model are linked to the schedule activities using an associative database software. Once linked, the result can be played to show a step-by-step construction sequence of the planned building. INTERACT & ANALYZE The team plays the sequence for all team members in an interactive setting which encourages informed decisions in the planning process.

EMJ shares information with jobsite staff and subcontractors to visually communicate expectations. The team can use the 4D study as a one-time exercise at the beginning of the job, or it can be updated incrementally as the project progresses.

BENEFITS The process removes ambiguity of the project schedule and all parties are held accountable for their work.

Alternate schedules are quickly visualized and analyzed.

Project stakeholders participate in schedule reduction suggestions while viewing the 4D schedule video in an interactive setting.


In a survey of construction industry professionals, over 300 respondents reported an average schedule slippage of 3.64% on their construction projects.

Charles Pankow Institute and Construction Industry Institute, Examining the Role of Integration in the Success of Building Construction Projects, 2014


One of the most time-consuming and laborious tasks of a construction project is estimating quantities of materials. By extracting quantity takeoff information directly from the 3D model, EMJ’s estimating and pre-construction teams quickly back-check their quantities, resulting in highly accurate pricing information. Model-Based Quantity Analysis



CREATE EMJ obtains or creates a 3D model of the project with as much detail as needed by our pre-construction team depending on the project type. ANALYZE & INTERACT • Extract quantities • Organize data and group and sort in a way that is meaningful for viewer • View 3D model to see exactly where materials take place in the design • Track design and understand variances from last design submission

Once the project is uploaded, team members utilize exported spreadsheets with quantity information and 3D models of each part of the building. As objects are selected on the quantity takeoff spreadsheet, they are automatically highlighted on the 3D model so that the user can visualize exactly where objects are located in the design.

BENEFITS This method validates hand-takeoffs and increases accuracy, and overall project costs are kept in check. EMJ is able to analyze the project design faster and more accurately each time a new design iteration is received.


Stanford University’s Center for Integrated Facilities Engineering showed that BIM provided for a 40% reduction of unbudgeted changes.

Penn State, BIM Planning Guide For Facility Owners, June 2013


Traditionally, construction companies build simply based on specifications. At EMJ, we analyze targeted equipment or materials in order to provide our clients with options so that they can make informed long-term decisions. We take into account not only material and installation costs, but also warranty periods, maintenance costs and lifespan replacement costs. Life-Cycle Cost Analysis



DISCOVER Our team searches for and researches value-creating opportunities in the building’s design and specifications. EMJ facilitates industry research and pulls from historical project data in order to formulate options for each value opportunity. ANALYZE & INTERACT Each option is monetized with a life-cycle cost formula applied for easy comparison. Choices are summarized, quantified, and communicated back into the design documents to be incorporated prior to construction.

EMJ delivers a deep cost-analysis for each phase of construction. Through interactive meetings, project stakeholders are informed of life-cycle cost information in order to make the best choices for their project goals.

BENEFITS The process reduces the cost of building ownership in areas such as warranty, maintenance, and replacement of equipment and materials. Clients move into the construction phase with confidence due to full transparency of options from all team members during the design and planning stages.
