Construction can benefit from a virtual world. When things go wrong it is costly. Augmented and virtually reality provides an opportunity to prototype and test continually.
As data grows, information needs to be visible quickly and easily. Apps provide a method to share patterns and progress.
Sometimes software doesn't do what we need. Bespoke plug ins simplify workflows and improve outputs.
Our geeks love a challenge. Sometimes we have to find an answer which hasn't been thought of before.

Working with Invest Newcastle the SAT team designed a virtual experience for this international event in Cannes. The model showed development sites across in Newcastle. The HTC Vive headset was used to allow visitors to interact and move within the space. An accompanying application was created to allow the model to be viewed on Google cardboard.
As part of a continual development of their design tools, SAT worked with Metsec technical team to create a Revit plug in to help specifiers to design with Metsec design parameters.
