Hopeful Future for 3D Design in the Building Sector

Companies across Britain are pouring millions of pounds into developing innovative 3D virtual technology with interactive features offering maximum flexibility to meet customer’s individual preferences even before construction has began.

Tesco has revealed today one of the latest 3D kitchen innovations which aims to help people make the right choice in deciding what is best for their kitchen using 3D building design technology.  Customers will be able to create any styles that meet their exact needs with custom- made interiors. Using 3D technology in building design has become increasingly popular.

The Construction Project Information Committee (CPIC) which is responsible for providing practice guidance on the content and preparation of construction production information believes its practices will become even more popular in the future due to further innovation in the building design sector.

The UK government is soon to outline its strategy to implement Building Information Modelling (known as BIM) on all public sector building projects. It is expected to make a significant difference to building design and optimise the building process in England.

3D digital modelling is transforming the design process of buildings worldwide saving considerable amounts of money to the building industry. It’s predicted that the new building modelling will save the industry at least 10% on build costs at £1bn to £2.5bn a year if it is used on all major projects.

The new method of planning has been estimated to significantly reduce waste and energy usage to enhance sustainability in buildings. This method will be equally caring for the environment too.

Technologies in building design will also influence the way engineers, architects and designers collaborate on future projects. For example, when creating a model of a building, architects and planners will have the capability to work together in order to test every aspect of the building in a virtual world, before any work on the building has begun.

Such technology innovations will allow every expert involved in a project to examine different elements of the building process and make further improvements.

What is your opinion on innovative 3D Design in the Building Construction Sector? Do you think that the 3D Kitchen Design developed by Tesco is a successful method which will be implemented by other businesses?

    i think its gd to see future construction in 3d it will give more dimensions for planning new builds and if its anything like the 3d learning cd s in my course it will be very well thought out
