Industrial facilities
Hexagon supports the complete lifecycle of complex utility projects with solutions that enable industrial assets to ramp up quickly while operating safely and reliably throughout a more sustainable, longer-term lifespan.

Operate and maintain phase

Leverage data from the planning, design and build phases to create an operational twin: a smart, digital reality that connects people, processes and events throughout the entire industrial facility lifecycle.

Explore all solutions for the industrial facilities ecosystem
Hexagon’s solutions for the buildings ecosystem ensure utility-related projects are optimised to reduce rework and meet time and budget plans while protecting human and material resources throughout the life of the asset.

Design phase

Capture an accurate digital reality of a building site’s existing conditions, features and positioning to help digitally design initial concepts that minimise inputs and reduce waste during the project.

Plan phase

Transform your vision and design into a plan of action, digitally mapping out every detail for the construction phase including materials, scheduling and cost.

Operate and maintain phase

Leverage all data from design, plan and build phases, to create a Smart Digital Reality that delivers full transparency to every element of the completed building to optimise operations, maintenance, safety and resiliency.

The identification of buried pipes and cables beneath the ground is crucial to eliminate utility hazards. Combine the mapping process with a topographical survey, and the results will provide you with a comprehensive detailed map of utilities.

Plan phase

Visualise the site above and below ground, digitally mapping out every detail for the construction phase, including time, materials, estimating, scheduling and cost.

Design phase

Digitally capture all the right distances and volumes that are key to construction performance, with accurate positioning and measurements integrated into the 3D model.

Prepare phase

Ensure that your infrastructure project is set up for success through careful site preparation. Our solutions can help with everything from site evaluation to preparing the machines — from underground utility detection to setting up GNSS corrections — and the effective mobilisation of your team and resources.

Construct phase

Maintain a data-driven approach to orchestrate the entire construction phase, creating a 3D model of productivity and efficiency — with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste — while layering 4D cost and 5D BIM scheduling data throughout the project.

Operate and maintain phase

Empower asset owners and operators with solutions that go beyond smart infrastructure and provide 24/7 visibility into the operational twin to optimise safety and efficiency throughout all operations and maintenance while extending the life of the infrastructure asset.
