Keywords: BIM, Mixed Reality, IFC, Heritage Conservation, Unity, Inspection Software, Preventive Maintenance
Abstract. Historical and cultural building conservation is often limited to high value buildings and only receives financial support when serious issues arise. Modern technologies are able to support and encourage a preventive approach, diminishing costs and avoiding possibly irreparable damage. One way of doing so is by improving the work-flow of building inspectors during their inspection r outines. In that regard, mixed reality presents itself as an attractive framework for easing maintenance tasks. This paper describes our current implementation of such a solution, levering the spatial capabilities of Microsoft’s HoloLens glasses.
