Barco pioneers large scale visualization, decision-making and planning
By visualizing construction sites or buildings in virtual reality, architects, engineers and other stakeholders can evaluate a project before it is built. This enables them to take well-founded decisions internally and externally without wasting time and budget.
Not only the looks, but also technical master plans (like HVAC and building materials) can continuously be simulated, evaluated, validated and improved. Projects designed in this way are not only better thought-through, but also advance a lot faster than traditional projects.
Virtual site visits immerse a group of users into a self-contained, digitally generated and safe world that is inexpensive and practical. A shared immersive experience allows people to better see and understand the project and provides a tremendous amount of info to a large group of people - at every stage of the design process. This results in sparked new discussions, more informed decisions, and improved collaboration.
