3D Model Providing Design View of Building

Utilising new technologies can help improve efficiency and working practices within the construction process, providing virtual environments to help plan and manage building design.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • The site worked with a university to develop a 3D headset which gives a design view of the interior of a building, with the ability to overlay design information over a partially built structure.
  • The application allows the user to view and manipulate objects from 3D design models.
  • The contractor helped develop the system by requesting the addition of health and safety warning signs, noises where risks are shown, ability to view drawings etc.
  • The system is being further developed to identify yellow triangle safety issue spots linked with illustrations of the risks.
  • Benefits include resolving design conflicts, quality control, avoiding known hazards etc.
