Architecture and Building Information Management

HLRS's visualization tools can support architects, engineers, and, planners in designing better buildings. Our platform can integrate computer aided design (CAD), building information management (BIM), simulations, and environmental datasets to develop a comprehensive, immersive model of how a building will function. Once implemented in virtual reality, the developers can move through a building virtually, gaining a more immediate understanding of how it will function and be experienced. This approach can help to identify potential opportunities for optimization and even avoid costly design mistakes before construction begins.
