    A deeper dive into BIM – a new immersive experience brings 3D models to life at Digital Construction Week

    A
    deeply immersive experience that allows architects, engineers and contractors
    to explore, touch and annotate 3D BIM models as they ‘walk’ through
    construction and civil engineering projects will be on display at next week’s Digital
    Construction Week (DCW) at ExCeL, London.

    3D
    Repo, the pioneer of a cloud-based digital construction platform for design
    collaboration in 3D BIM, has partnered with Mission Room to bring one of its
    large touch-screen media displays to the show. This installation enables a
    virtual walk-through of construction and infrastructure projects, giving
    greater depth of understanding of the projects’ complexities, risks and
    solutions.

    Consisting
    of three large screens and suspended projectors, Mission Room’s theatre-style
    viewing system allows project managers to view their BIM models like never
    before. Clients, contractors and designers can conduct detailed
    cross-functional reviews of models from any location, and the software allows
    them to annotate content and quickly share results across the business.

    In
    addition to demonstrating its multi award-winning BIM collaboration tools, 3D
    Repo is offering visitors the opportunity to see a demo of their own 3D models
    on the large screen at stand E22 at Digital Construction Week on 16-17 October.

    Delegates
    can email 3D Repo at marketing@3drepo.com
    to request a secure link so they can upload their models prior to the event.

    Dr
    Jozef Dobos, founder and CEO of 3D Repo, says:

    “Digital
    Construction Week is all about exploring the potential of industrial
    technologies to help create a better built environment, and we’re excited to
    join the conversation, to discover new opportunities, and to showcase the
    possibilities of our own digital platform.”

    3D
    Repo is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for BIM coordination in the
    cloud. Its platform allows users to manage 3D model revisions and to highlight
    potential issues using live collaboration tools, which enable the whole project
    team to work from a single source of truth anywhere and at any time.

    Instead
    of architects, engineers and contractors sharing massive proprietary files in a
    costly and time-consuming manner, they can simply point their web browser to an
    encrypted cloud platform in order to examine each project stage virtually.

    The
    3D Repo team has collaborated on a number of large-scale projects with
    companies such as Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Bryden Wood, Buro
    Happold, Canary Wharf Contractors and Crossrail among others.
