Get The Point, LLC (GTP) is a software development firm, specializing in the transfer of information from Autodesk's design applications to robotic total station technology. The conceptual approach of GTP is to move CADD(Computer Aided Drafting & Design) and BIM (Building Information Modeling) data from the office to the field for job site layout. With this improved construction approach, projects are being completed on time and under budget, with more accuracy than ever before imagined.
The construction industry has strugged with how we bring BIM to the field and use it to our advantage. GTP has compiled a team of experienced construction-oriented people to answer these questions. We understand how important a direct import/export is to the AEC community from Revit and Navisworks. At GTP, we have been able to complete that task and now have the only direct point creation import/export based in Revit design software. This capability directly makes the BIM model constructible and allows an increase of productivity from the office to the field. Plus, we have also based that same solution on all CAD/BIM platforms, allowing the contractors to coordinate that point information directly in Navisworks, thus creating a true clash detection tool for constructing a project.
Another major issue we've addressed is the application of laying that point information out in the field. We have made modifications to the Sokkia instrument, by patenting certain technologies, that now can take construction staking to a whole other level, creating the opportunity to be more efficient on every aspect of the project.
At the end of the day, our objective is to streamline the layout process and realize savings on field layout time. Our clients are seeing substantial improvements in field productivity, and sometimes more importantly, reductions in rework. GTP's Total Station solution has bridged a gap between CAD/BIM efforts and the field, and continues to improve on this innovative technology with focus and determination. GTP has made a commitment to the construction industy: From the drawings to the dirt to the deck, efficient layout is not just our goal. It's our purpose.
