The pandemic has encouraged many organisations to adopt more flexible ways of working. As a result, they seek efficient alternatives to business travel and face-to-face meetings. They need an experience as good as visiting the site, without leaving the comfort of their workspace.
Technology such as virtual space capture (VSC) has the power to unlock great potential, helping us adapt and transform like never before. So what role can it play in the design and build process? And how can it help us deliver quality, efficient and timely projects?
Travel restrictions have affected every sector, including the design and construction industry. However, the challenge has been ensuring consistent results while not always being able to meet in person.
We’re using innovative virtual space capture technology to improve how we run projects. These 3D models are spaces that clients can explore and engage with before and during construction. VSC provides interactive experiences for everyone involved in the project. As a result, this improves the overall efficiency of the design and build process.
Firstly, our specialists take 4k high-quality scans of spaces with 360 cameras. Then, they convert the still images into an immersive 3D environment that works on any device.
The technology offers:
Using virtual space capture technology helps us streamline project management processes. So our teams can collaborate seamlessly within a digital project model. It improves efficiency and, therefore, the speed of project delivery.
It also impacts:
– Your people
– Your project
As longstanding members of the virtual space capture community and its beta testing teams, we’re also involved in developing new features. This ensures M Moser can shape the technology in a way that prioritises our clients’ needs.
For example, we’re currently in the process of developing digital Operations and Maintenance (O&M) manuals within the model. The overall result will be a valuable guide for facilities and operations teams to maintain their space after moving in.
“The Europe team initially found success with the tools, inspiring M Moser to adopt its use globally. From there we knew we had to join the beta testing community. Things are only going to get bigger and better.”Garth Chamberlain, Associate Director, EMEA Contracts, M Moser Associates
We’re excited to continue exploring how new technologies can enhance the design and build process. After all, virtual space capture is just one example of how advanced technology can support people’s changing needs.
These cutting-edge tools have enabled remote communication and collaboration during challenging times. However, we see even greater potential for the future. VSC capabilities are part of our commitment to innovate and deliver quality environments where the client experience is central.
