Not only did this project call on the wide range of engineering disciplines across our business, including civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, electronic, plumbing, fire and sustainability, but it was the first fully modelled project in which all the different disciplines took part. This enabled seamless collaboration with the architect, project manager, quantity surveyor and full construction team to achieve a better coordinated outcome.
In the early design phase, we used our 3D assets to design an immersive, gamified, virtual reality rendering of the planned redevelopment for the precinct and a detailed rendering for our new HQ. Once we had completed the detailed rendering, we were able to host 3D coordination sessions from our previous offices. This not only ensured that the design process was thorough, but also enabled us to identify any potential problems early in the design phases, so we could correct them in the 3D environment. This provided a holistic and integrated design that allowed the whole project team to be truly proactive and collaborative in developing solutions. It also led to far more coordinated and streamlined construction phases.
