Verity-GeoSLAM Collaboration Advances Real-Time Construction Quality Management
The partnership between Verity construction verification software from ClearEdge3D and GeoSLAM’s “go-anywhere” 3D mobile mapping technology promises to help AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) professionals significantly advance their ability to verify as-built field data with design models.
INTERGEO, BERLIN, GERMANY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2017¾The next generation of construction quality assurance/control methodology and technology is integrating simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) with building information modeling. GeoSLAM and ClearEdge3D are pleased to announce an upcoming beta program that allows as-built construction data¾measured using GeoSLAM’s hand-held, lightweight mobile laser scanners¾to be compared against design/fabrication models using ClearEdge3D’s Verity software to quickly and easily identify installation status and out-of-tolerance or inaccurately constructed work.

ClearEdge3D Acquires Construction Verification Software Firm Pericept
The acquisition joins two strong construction QA/QC technologies, Verity and BIMtrace, into a single market-leading company.
ClearEdge3D, the developers of the Verity construction verification software and the EdgeWise automated modeling software, today announced the acquisition of Pericept, a construction verification software firm based in Texas. Pericept’s BIMtraceTM software captures recently installed scopes-of-work (SOW) on a construction site and compares the as-built work to the design model to verify that the elements have been properly installed. A unique feature of the BIMtrace system is its ability to utilize iPhone or iPad images instead of laser scan data to give users a comparison of the as-built conditions to the design or fabrication models in a matter of minutes Learn More.
Announcing Verity 1.0!
Construction verification software that analyzes point clouds of as-built construction against the design/fabrication model and flags any out-of-tolerance work
It’s estimated that 5% to 12% of a construction project budget is consumed by mistakes and rework. New software called Verity™ (from the makers of EdgeWise™) dramatically reduces this financial impact, resulting in reduced risk, more profitable construction projects, more accurate as-builts and fewer schedule delays.
Verity compares point clouds against design & fabrication models, allowing you to verify 100% of your work in the time it currently takes you to spot check 5%. The software helps you find construction mistakes before they become expensive problems.
Verify 100% of your work in the time it takes to spot-check 5%
If you’re like most GCs, your field engineers, armed with a total station or a tape measure, spot check anywhere from 5% to 10% of your subcontractor’s work. This is a wholly inadequate workflow for today’s complex projects and invariably leads to downstream clashes, schedule delays and cost overruns. With Verity and a laser scanner, you can check 100% of your work in the time it takes to spot check. Verity gives you a complete record of a sub’s work—when it was installed and if it was installed to spec.
Announcing EdgeWise 5.1!
With automated extraction of gridded steel, enhanced automated pipe extraction, deeper Revit integration and a Plant 3D plug-in
The research lab at ClearEdge has done it again! EdgeWise 5.1 is our biggest software update ever. Kevin Williams, Chief Scientist, and his team have completely updated the core automated feature extraction algorithms and the results are amazing. Not only is the pipe extraction SUBSTANTIALLY better, they’ve also designed new algorithms to automate the extraction of gridded structural steel and concrete. Pretty groundbreaking stuff! Here’s what’s in the 5.1 release:
- New pipe extraction algorithms that virtually eliminate false positives
- New technology to automate the extraction of gridded steel and concrete structures—this will fundamentally change the way you model structure
- New Plant 3D plug-in that brings EdgeWise intelligent models directly into Plant 3D
- Improved Revit plugin that enables import of even out-of-tolerance as-built elbows
- The new photo-realistic visualization engine called ClearView™
- And much more!
