Supporting groundbreaking achievements
Today’s engineering, construction and operations (EC&O) industry is capable of delivering projects that seem almost miraculous. For example, VINCI Group has kept CNIT, one of Paris’ largest and most impressive buildings, floating in the air for more than four years while it builds a new train station underneath.
What makes these achievements even more remarkable is that the industry still relies on very primitive processes and tools. Information is siloed in systems owned by different parties, and none of the stakeholders have a complete view of the history or status of a major project. As a result, at every stage from design through construction to operation, important information gets lost.
Sixense, a subsidiary of the VINCI Group, focuses on developing technologies to support the EC&O industry — from Internet of Things sensors to three-dimensional LIDAR mapping. With its combination of EC&O know-how and technology expertise, Sixense realized it was in the perfect position to solve the information challenge and help its clients transform the way the industry operates.
