CLIENT: Carbon Dynamic
PROJECT: Augmented and Virtual Reality CoDesign Platform
Carbon Dynamic were initially looking for a solution that would enable them to facilitate crowd-sourced design sessions informing the development of a technology enabled assisted-living home.
The decision was taken to provide this platform using the latest augmented and virtual reality hardware and needed the existing BIM data to be processed in time for a co-design workshop attended by over 100 people from 17 organisations.
This was then evolved into a solution that the business could use on-going throughout many stages of the manufacturing and design process.
Sublime created the solution, named ‘FitHome’, a platform that would enhance the design, manufacturing, and assembly processes of the modular housing business.
Using both virtual and augmented reality, Sublime developed applications which allowed Carbon Dynamic to quickly make detailed and informed decisions for the design of their spaces based on direct feedback from end users.
The level of detail and feedback gained from using this technology was hugely beneficial to the business, saving time and money and avoiding costly mistakes.
This approach avoided the traditional cost of manufacturing a full-scale prototype and offered more flexibility for updates, whilst the project’s timeline was accelerated and therefore costs reduced.
By having the client and designer create and visualise potential layouts quickly for largescale developments, both in augmented or virtual reality (AR / VR), there were less delays and reduced errors due to improved communication flow and annotated displays providing animated step-by-step instructions.
“I am excited at the prospect of where we can take this exciting and emerging technology next. It is clear that with such a strong, experienced and pioneering partner in Sublime we really do not need to impose any limits on what can be achieved.”
