Mabey Hire evolves temporary works BIM integration

Mabey Hire has launched the latest iteration of its immersive platform the integrates temporary works with BIM workflows - EVE 3.0

Mabey Hire has launched the latest iteration of its immersive platform that integrates temporary works with BIM workflows.

Known as Eve, the platform integrates with the likes of Revit, Civil 3D and Navisworks, and allows users to engage in a project, from taking a virtual walk through the construction site and/or existing structure, to physically visualising and exploring the engineered temporary works scheme in-situ. The temporary works specialist launched EVE three years ago.

The new 3.0 iteration incorporates password encryption for designs. For those working on more sensitive projects where an NDA may be in place, a design can be saved behind an encrypted firewall, ensuring it is not viewed by anyone without permission.

Mabey Hire has also added a front-end tutorial, with a step-by-step guide on how to use the application.

Finally, there has been a range of changes to EVE’s functionality, including the optimisation of existing functions to make them easier to use, as well as the addition of a new asset library. This incorporates vehicles, plant and traffic flows into the existing library, allowing for real-life site simulations to be run.

Each project phase can also now be easily selected and cycled through in demonstrations, allowing users to clearly display and explain them to the wider project team.

Customer feedback

Andrew Gascoine, digital engineering manager at Mabey Hire, said: “Following customer feedback and seeing how users have been implementing EVE on their projects over the last three years, we have made a variety of improvements, ranging from larger-scale overhauls of the original user interface, to smaller user experience enhancements.

“With construction and infrastructure projects growing in size and complexity, having the correct digital tools available for contractors, engineers and temporary works suppliers is key. With technologies like EVE, we can ensure that our customers are receiving the best support we can provide them with, as well as helping to push forward the digitisation of the temporary works sector.”
