Consultant engineer Robert Bird Group has launched a platform in which design and construction planning can be viewed, developed and coordinated in real-time.
Named RBG Reveal, it gives project stakeholders direct access to navigate, explore, interrogate, and interact with design and construction solutions, from any angle, at any stage of construction. It can be used by both co-located teams, or teams working remotely.
Robert Bird Group claims the new platform will “revolutionise virtual design and construction services”.
Jarrad Warhurst, construction engineering director (UK/Europe) of Robert Bird Group, said: “The RBG Reveal platform is a step-change in the way we interact with, develop and communicate design and construction solutions for projects. It is more accessible in terms of construction visualisation than anything on the market at present, putting the power to understand challenges and communicate solutions into everyone’s hands. It is a highly interactive and intuitive 4D communication tool and – since it draws on project BIM information – the data provided is extremely accurate.
“We are using RBG Reveal on a number of projects to get under the skin of complex project delivery challenges.”
RBG Reveal offers high quality visuals while being data-rich, Warhurst noted. “It has an interactive interface and is intuitive to use, but is also very mature in the data it captures. You can use it to interrogate most of the information used to build up project BIM models, making it a powerful tool for co-ordinating design and construction outcomes with project teams.”
