WE HAVE MOVED! We’re excited to share that... WE HAVE MOVED!
BIM CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) Bringing to you our very own BIM CAVE in our new office!
A BIM Cave is a projection VR system that creates virtual worlds via 3D projections in a “cave” like environment with users wearing lightweight 3D glasses! In a BIM CAVE, you can visualize designs, have a 3D model walk-through, implement MEP clash coordination, execute constructability review, and more.
Stay tuned for more updates!

WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
Digitally Manage Your
On-Site Workforce Workshop
Novade Workforce management is a collaborative system to manage and monitor workforces. The attendees have gained insight into how they can digitize your workforce management such as track hours and attendance, optimize human resources,automate the data transfer on work hours from site to HQ by using digital timecards.
Streamline Your Design to
Fabrication Process Workshop
Dive deeper into BIM to gain even greater value across the fabrication, manufacturing and assembly workflow. The attendees have gained knowledge on how an integration between your BIM Model and SOLIDWORKS can help them to streamline workflow, produce detailed designs, and use the output from engineer design to fabricate directly.
4D Scheduling & Project Controls
with PowerProject Workshop
How can PowerProject help to fulfill IDD requirements for 4D scheduling & resource planning? The attendees have learned how to create schedule with ease of “Drag and drop”, compare Planned Vs Actual schedule plans via 3D window, display timeline simulations of the construction sequence and more.
Immersive Edu Tech Meetup:
Let's Build! @ Ngee Ann Polytechnic
We have been invited to Ngee Ann Polytechnic to conduct a workshop regarding the 3D capture and virtual tour creation with Matterport. The students have learned how Matterport 3D camera captures 2D photography and 3D data and automatically stitches them into a complete and immersive 3D model.

Over the last five years, we have witnessed the widespread application of digital technology across the construction industry. With it, contractors and clients have enjoyed considerable benefits, ranging from increased productivity to the attraction of bright young talent to the sector. Incorporating these types of technology is saving between 10-30% of time that would otherwise have been spent accessing or creating traditional “paperwork”. - PBC Today , BIM News, 08 July 2019
Technology is playing an increasingly important role in the shift to offsite construction. Robotics and other automation technologies are enhancing and speeding up the manufacturing process, making it more like automotive production. Many modular players utilize virtual and augmented reality programs, which create digital models that allow customers to visualize and tailor designs before they are built. Technology also is helping facilitate digitally-enabled, "just-in-time" delivery to the jobsite. - Construction Dive, 03 July 2019
Shifting construction away from traditional sites and into factories could dramatically change the way we build. Modular construction offers the industry an opportunity to make a step change: shifting many aspects of building activity away from traditional construction sites and into factories with off-site, manufacturing-style production. Modular (or prefabricated) construction is not a new concept, but technological improvements, economic demands, and changing mind-sets mean it is attracting an unprecedented wave of interest and investment. If it takes hold, it could give the industry a huge productivity boost, help solve housing crises in many markets, and significantly reshape the way we build today. - McKinsey, June 2019
