We offer all designs represented in 3-dimensional format.
As a learning and progressive business we pride ourselves as an early adopter of new technologies. We have a 24-strong in-house design department that ensures close collaboration with the customer during design development.
A recent advancement in our design capabilities is the adoption of new digital immersive techniques. These include 360 degree cameras, 360 degree scanners, point cloud surveys, 3D CAD and Virtual Reality models.
At the end of this process our 3D CAD enables us to model stress on the design and also to create fabrication drawings straight from the 3D model – this is a major plus for us because the 3D is a full design, not a representation.
We’ve now taken this to the next level with ‘immersive technology’ that blurs the line between the physical world and digital or simulated world, thereby creating a sense of immersion. We now have the capability to walk around within our 3D models in a cloud-based virtual environment that offers the possibility of a shared experience with multiple users.
We support Gear VR and Oculus Rift and use a GT73VR GRF Titan Pro laptop, with a 6th Gen. Intel Core i7 processor, specified to run the most demanding of virtual reality tasks.
This technology is very new in our field and using a virtual environment, means that we can not only render the resulting structure in stunning 3D, but also experience it as if in the real world. We’ve even created an Immersive Technologies Viewing Room at our headquarters in Midsomer Norton so that our clients can experience this for themselves. Please see a case study here.
