On December 8, Dean Vahan Agopyan visited the Trimble Technology Lab, a Polytechnic School (Poli) laboratory dedicated to training and research in 3D building projects, Building Information Modeling (BIM), topographic surveys and georeferencing, scans and environments built sustainable.
The space is the result of the University’s partnership with the North American company Trimble, which develops technology in the area of positioning, modeling, connectivity and data analysis for the entire productive chain of industries, mainly in the areas of agriculture, construction, geospatial and transport and logistics.
The Trimble Technology Lab will provide Poli students, including the Departments of Civil Construction (PCC) and Transport Engineering (PTR), with practical experience in solutions that include building and construction site scanning, architectural modeling and digital cost estimates and construction schedule to improve productivity and reduce costs.
“For USP, receiving a donation from Trimble is not just a financial advantage to improve a laboratory or support research. First, it expresses the confidence invested in what we do; second, it represents support for our activities and, thirdly, the collaboration enables continuous dialogue with Trimble, which will certainly be strengthened as we build this relationship with a leader in construction technology, ”said Agopyan.
The laboratory includes various equipment and software donated by the company, such as the robotic total station, mechanical total stations, Trimble GNSS topographic system, a 3D laser scanner and handheld scanners, as well as monitoring, scanning and geospatial data processing software. and 3D modeling.
The director of Poli, Liedi Legi Bariani Bernucci, and the global vice president of Trimble, Carlos Alberto Pinto Nogueira, as well as professors from the school departments and other company representatives also participated in the visit.
