Best Industrial Presentation Award at Web3D 2018
Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) has witnessed a boom in the use of web3D technologies over the past few years thanks to the proliferation of WebGL support in modern web browsers, and the ever increasing need for multidisciplinary collaboration across large-scale construction projects. In this summary, we present a number of AEC-specific requirements and a set of applications for interactive visualization via the Internet based on the 3D Repo open source platform. These span collaborative design, 3D change and clash detection, data mining, maps integration and health and safety training. The presented use cases were developed in collaboration with large AEC companies, namely Atkins, Balfour Beatty, Canary Wharf Contractors, Costain and Skanska in the UK.
