Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) is inviting construction companies to discover how the latest developments in visualisation technology can help them to drive greater efficiencies and improved performance. 

Hosted in association with Robert Gordon University (RGU) and the Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), the free-to-attend Visualising our Worldevent will take place in Aberdeen on Thursday, 8 November. It will examine the current and future applications of visualisation technology.

The emergence of Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality has revolutionised the way buildings are constructed and managed.Adoption of these technologies has accelerated rapidly in recent years, seeing them become a valuable tool for construction professionals. These innovative new methods of visualisation present numerous opportunities, from the design stage to communication and collaboration, health and safety training and site management.


Attendees at Visualising our Worldwill have the opportunity to hear from Stephen Slessor, operations director of Morrison Construction, who will explore the current technologies available, and what they would like to see in the future. There will also be presentations from representatives from OGIC, CSIC, RGU, Oceaneering, Return to Scene, CGI UK and Multivista.

There will also be interactive stands, demonstrating the latest in visualisation technology from companies across the country, including an augmented reality app and iHawk software, which can be used to visualise the progress of construction projects.

Ben Westland, Head of Strategic and Commercial Operations at at CSIC said:“Often when a new technology is first developed, it takes a while for companies to realise the range of opportunities and benefits that it offers. In terms of construction, visualisation technology can help reduce costs and time taken on projects. This event provides a unique opportunity to explore the latest technological advances, look to the future of visualisation and find out what it could mean for construction businesses.”
