Bryden Wood is partnering with 3D Repo to develop 4D sequence visualisation features for their database driven Digital Construction Platform. These features will allow users to visualise 3D construction projects, over time, directly from their existing BIM models. Outputs will be viewable not only in 3D Repo’s web based platform, but also by loading directly from the cloud and viewing via market leading virtual reality headsets such as Oculus and HTC Vive.
4D modelling is a term used in the construction sector and refers to the fourth dimension of time, so 4D schedule is a 3D model that includes the construction sequencing. This enables teams to analyse events on a time-line and visualise the duration it takes to complete tasks, within the construction process.
Phil Langley, Director of Bryden Wood said “We are delighted to work with 3D Repo and we see 4D as a key component of digital transformation, especially in the design for manufacture sector when applied to construction. Combining this with the latest technologies from 3D Repo will make for a powerful solution to benefit the industry as a whole. This is pioneering work – putting 4D into virtual reality – a first in construction we think.”
Jozef Dobos, CEO, 3D Repo said “When developing tools for the construction industry 3D Repo has always partnered with industry experts to guide our development. In Bryden Wood we have found not only experts in design for construction but also partners who really understand the power of innovation and how it can help the construction industry.”
3D Repo and Bryden Wood will be launching this new development at the upcoming Digital Construction Week with the fourth British Information Modelling event. Bringing together innovators and experts from across the Building Information Modelling (BIM) and GIS sectors, the latest seminar – hosted by Geovation at their London Hub – will take place on the 16th October 2017 (For event info and tickets click here).
3D Repo, a spinout from University College London, is a multi-award winning company offering a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the cloud. Instead of architects, consultants and contractors sharing massive proprietary files in a costly and time consuming manner, they can simply point their web browser to an encrypted knowledge base in order to examine each project stage virtually, even on mobile devices.
Bryden Wood was founded in 1995 and has grown into a 150+ strong integrated design and operations consultancy for the built environment, whose activities span from analysis and business strategy, through architecture and engineering.
