A US engineering services business have touted the success of their latest solution to combine gaming technologies with Building Information Modelling.

Chicago-based VIATechnik has “set a new bar” relating to methods of bringing BIM, virtual design and gaming together, with their new service also accommodating logistics planning.

“Our engineers can create a virtual environment to help a client interact with a project,” explained Anton Dy Buncio in an official press release.

“The difference with this and something like [Autodesk] Revit lies in ability to create a UI [user interface] where the client, with no modeling experience, can easily make changes to the model and interact with our work. For example, in a power plant project that we are working on, our client is able to manipulate multiple logistics plans and evaluate various logistical challenges quickly.”

VIATechnik elaborate by stating that the benefits of using their new service is “undeniable” and an “indicator towards the future in BIM”. We can’t say we disagree!
