- Virtual immersive visits and the creation of drawings with precise space measurement open up a line of value-added services for the company’s clients
- The electronic format based on captured reality offers applications that are highly useful in the marketing and management of real estate, the tourism sector and the maintenance of industrial installations in order to optimize operating costs
ACCIONA Service has incorporated Captured Reality into its portfolio, enabling it to obtain a 3D digital model, an ‘As Built’ drawing and a BIM model for any closed space, thereby adding a new added value line for its clients.
Captured reality technologyoffers a wider range of options for the industrial, real estate, tourism and facility management sectors, as it has both commercial and marketing applications with immersive visits and operational options in the form of measurements and the generation of drawings very quickly, the planning of renovations, improvements to processes, the management of space and buildings or the maintenance of facilities.
‘Captured reality’ is different from other techniques to create 3D models in that it starts from 360º-degree photographs combined with infrared sensor technology to speed up data collection and create a 3D model of the reality in a very short time, as well as a construction plan of the captured surroundings.
Three-dimensional models make it possible to create virtual immersive visits, take real measurements and identify alternatives to optimize operating costs and calculate reforms and maintenance remotely, quickly and more reliably. A construction plan is also of great value in engineering, industrial installations, architecture, etc. as it provides up-to-date and detailed information on space, because in many cases there are considerable differences against floor/ground plans and sometimes these are not available.
The models created with captured reality are easily accessed by the client through the Internet and can be visualized on mobile devices with virtual reality glasses, making the immersive experience more intense. This feature gives captured reality great potential as a commercial tool for real estate operators, museums, hotels, shopping malls, etc., using it as an advertising tool on their websites or at events or trade fairs.
The new system can also be used to develop training processes in a virtual environment that is identical to reality.
Following its internal use in a number of the group’s divisions, ACCIONA Service has identified the functionalities that add value to sectors such as hotel & catering, real estate and industrial facilities/properties, leading to the development of a methodology to implement and exploit it. The Victorio Macho museum in Toledo was one of the first projects completed.
This new service is the result of synergies between different businesses of the ACCIONA Group. Apart from ACCIONA Service, the Innovation, Environment and Quality Department of ACCIONA Engineering and other personnel from that division intervene in the process.
