Virtual reality, 3D modeling, drones … the construction sector is digitizing and embarking on the digital level. At Evaco Construction, traditional methods for design have given way to innovative tools. A revolution bringing real opportunities.
In the construction sector, the new technology has sounded the death knell for traditional design methods. The digital revolution is a must to meet an increasingly demanding clientele and meet a growing need for environmentally friendly, ultra-connected and hyper-secure real estate products. 3D modelling or Building Information Modelling – BIM improves building design and construction monitoring by optimising the costs as well as the use of materials. The use of 3D modeling at Evaco is part of the group’s vision of maintaining growth while optimising the use of available resources. This new technology allows Evaco to offer high-quality construction for large-scale projects, and maintain an unparalleled level of service.
Respond more rapidly and effectively
According to Yogeshen Aroonachellum, 3D designer at Evaco Construction, BIM is an intelligent process based on a 3D model. This tool provides architecture, engineering and construction professionals with the materials they need to plan, design, build and manage buildings and infrastructure more efficiently. “Global building trends make architectural and construction projects more complex. The use of innovative tools such as 3D modeling allows professionals to respond more rapidly and effectively to customer needs. Through BIM, we can create intelligent, well-informed 3D models that incorporate information that includes the physical and functional characteristics and properties of the materials and elements that make up the structure. In the end, the team is more collaborative and productive, “he explains.
The building site of the future
The data collected through 3D modelling allows professionals to define design elements, establish behaviours and establish relationships between the various components. “The use of 3D models has allowed Evaco to improve the various projects before they are completed. This technology brings more fluidity to the validation process by stakeholders. It also facilitates access to key information before the start of the project. 3D modelling gives us a global view of the project, a great asset for predictive management and maintenance, “says Yogeshen Aroonachellum. In addition, the use of innovative tools in construction has several benefits including reducing risks, optimizing construction times, reducing costs and improving quality.
A must-have marketing tool
3D modeling is definitely an efficient marketing tool. After the virtual design of the project, a model is printed using a 3D printer thus giving life to the most creative ideas. “3D modeling makes it easy to create the most innovative marketing concepts. For example, 3D models of villas or apartments can be used for commercial presentations. 3D modelling offers an original experience and disrupts marketing codes. In short, technological advances allow designers to dramatize their products to better captivate customers, “says the 3D modeller.
Yogeshen Aroonachellum: the artist’s touch
One is not born an artist, one becomes an artist. Fascinated by new technologies, Yogeshen Aroonachellum charts his professional course in 3D modelling and virtual reality.
“I have always been fascinated by virtual reality and architecture. With 3D modelling, these two areas combine perfectly. This passion has driven me to specialized studies in this field, “he says. Yogeshen Aroonachellum states that 3D modeling and design require a lot of patience, rigor and perseverance.
