How VR is shaping the AEC industries?


With this event dedicated to the Virtual Reality in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industries, we will dive you into some of the real-world use cases of how clients are using VR technologies in reality!
We will discuss how VR visualization solutions have evolved focusing on the wide variety of AEC use-cases in general, and be pointing out why virtual reality and collaboration is key in these industries!

David Edge

Creative Lead @ARUP

Creative lead for Arup’s visualisation studio.
His expertise – and the studio’s work – sits at the intersection of advanced visualisation, human/computer interactions, extended reality and gaming design. The high-fidelity, virtual environments he creates give clients a powerful way to communicate unbuilt schemes to developers, communities, investors and government.
His work on major commissions has helped grow ARUPS’ studio and their abilities. They delivered the virtual launch of ArcelorMittal Orbit, a centrepiece of the London 2012 Olympics. They have visualised options for the proposed Garden Bridge and, recently, simulated the passenger experience on the UK’s High Speed 2 rail project.
He is active in the visualisation and virtual environment community and sit on the advisory board of Immerse UK, the UK’s immersive technology network.


Dr. Erfan Shahabpoor Ardakani

Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human-Structure Dynamics @University of Bath

Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human-Structure Dynamics at the University of Bath.
He joined the Department as lecturer in 2017.
Current research interests involves vibration measurement of real-world structures, modelling human-induced structural vibrations, human-structure dynamic interaction, and investigating human perception and acceptability of structural vibration.
Working together with an interdisciplinary team of psychologists, physiologists, building physicists and structural engineers, this work will provide the next generation of motion and vibration serviceability criteria and assessment methods.
