After completion of the model, Aurecon travelled to the Brisbane International Terminal and set up a temporary virtual reality space onsite, allowing more than 15 Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) employees including CEO Julieanne Alroe to experience the model.
These employees came from a variety of backgrounds and roles, and allowed BAC to capture a broad cross section of feedback and understanding about the proposed wayfinding changes.
“We took the mobile kit to Brisbane Airport so as many BAC staff and project stakeholders could experience the virtual reality model and have a hand in designing the wayfinding layouts,” said Murphy.
In addition to the general positive feedback regarding the effectiveness of the virtual reality experience, real design issues were identified and resolved.
Aurecon firmly believes we are at the beginning of a paradigm shift that will continue to challenge our ideas of how we interact with models, data and reality.
This powerful form of collaboration, using virtual reality, now has Aurecon applying digital engineering solutions to other aviation projects across the globe.
