Ilona Rose House is located in a busy area of Soho, London, between Charing Cross Road and Greek Street. Although it is the early stages of construction, the project has been going on for a couple of years as there was extensive demolition and excavation. Due to the location and duration, the project is of high interest within our community.
To address the high interest of our project within our community, we have installed a user-friendly version of BIM on our community website. The model is embedded within the website and does not require any additional software or websites. The controls to view and walk around the building are very simple – right and left mouse buttons and the scroll wheel. The model has been advertised in our community newsletter to ensure people know about it.
The benefit of having this interactive but simple to use model on our website is so that our community can begin to understand what is going on behind the hoarding and what the neighbourhood will look like once the works are complete. Given the long timescale of the whole project, having our neighbours understand what we are building gives them a better sense of control and less frustration with construction projects in this busy area.
