ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Because of international competition, global team distribution as well as limited resources we need to make development and infrastructure projects and construction smarter, safer and more sustainable. Through visual replication, streamlined data capture and software application, we can assist in collaboration through better desk planning and approved integrated workflow for AEC professionals. High dynamic range image recording ensure site establishment, design, costing and project coordination from early stage assessment to handoff with more accuracy, improved operational efficiency and reduced risk. Timeline and milestones can be remotely identified from the safety and comfort of a desk improving the occupational health and safety of all participants involved.
It is crucial to conduct accurate surveying of heritage assets. By recording historical structures we secure an appreciation of the building but the visual data also help curators, historians and expert practitioners, make inform decisions around the approval and implementation of conservation and alteration. The Historic Building Recording Survey ask for a detailed measured survey to assess and record historic structures before redevelopment can start. By capturing real life detailed interior and exterior environments, parts of the building that will be lost as a result of restoration, demolition or neglect is surveyed and recorded for historic importance. 3D documentation also assist in heritage management, use of the building and the rights of owners and occupants.
EDUCATION AND TOURISM
The process of creating new methods of receiving and giving instruction is vital in the post-pandemic ever-changing modern world. Creating immersive and interactive learning experiences offer individuals, groups of scholars, lifelong learners and employees new ways of engaging with subject content whilst retaining interest and developing skills.
By creating 360 virtual plans and visualisations identical to future work environments, college and university students can familiarise themselves with the space, equipment and machinery they are to use in the real world beyond learning.
Visual asset management also promote campus visits and safety. Student and parents can assess college facilities through informative virtual tours before enrolling. Knowing the layout of the campus through digital mapping and visualisation can help create a safer environment for both student and college staff. It will ensure faster co-ordination during evacuation, faster emergency response and regaining of control during a crisis.
Digitalisation of the tourist industry is fast becoming the norm. Navigating virtual tours not only enhance pre-visits to tourist sites and outdoor locations but can replace the experience completely. Virtual tours can bring entire collections, exhibitions and installations to the traveller whilst supporting not only the value chain of tourism but also the preservation of tourist attractions.
Virtual reality and information rich walkthroughs, visual assets, create interactive experiences and engagement with your web audience. It is now at the heart of digital marketing and an important step in holding your customer or client’s attention. Visual exploration empowers, educates, informs, entertains and engages purchasing power and loyalty.
STRUCTURAL, EXAMINATION INSPECTION AND DECOMMISSIONING
Capturing a 32 HDR image ensures a high quality image with no loss of visual data, a crucial requirement when doing structural inspection and examination. All detail is captured in the most difficult lighting conditions, often the norm, in various industrial industries. During the inspection of tanks, pipelines, tunnels, roads, bridges, basements etc it is crucial to optimise data as to avoid the loss of detail when studying structural changes and dilapidation. Stereo images capable of measuring dimension remotely identify and document hazards and reduce the risk and cost of re-visiting dangerous and difficult to enter sites.
Visual Asset Management ensures responsible and safe decommissioning of facilities and infrastructure at the end of production. Careful distance planning amongst all stakeholders ensure the method, time line and removal happens safely and as per regulations. 3 D document management ensures vital close-out reports.
The administration of building and grounds, infrastructure and real estate requires management of the existing surrounding conditions. Visual digital data allows for distributed information that assist in the operations and management of various disciplines and services, safely and timely integrating people and their environment.
