Going the Extra Mile for a Local Resident

During a community drop-in session for their Scape Burnshot Bridge project, Balfour Beatty brought a 3D model of the bridge for residents to view through a VR headset. Unfortunately, a local blind resident was left disappointed as he thought it would be a physical model which he could have explored with his hands.

The site team and client were really affected by the resident’s disappointment, so they commissioned a fully detailed, textured, 1 : 200 scale model to be 3D printed. The resident was invited back to site for a presentation and the opportunity to interact with the new 3D model.

The resident was very appreciative and thankful for the effort made by the site team:

“Words cannot express my thanks to you all for making this presentation possible. My thanks to you for going beyond the call to instigate the project, it is refreshing to know that there are still some people out there who are willing to go the extra step to include all members of the community who for one reason or another could and in some cases feel left out as they are not able to join in with the majority of folks.”
