Hilson Moran’s ‘Stand Out’ 3D BIM augmented reality app won ‘Gold in the Best use of Digital in the Property Sector’ category of the Digital Impact Awards on 14 October.
Hilson Moran is at the forefront of Building Information Modelling (BIM) design within the property industry and the unique app can be used to discover what goes on behind the façade of a building. Created by integrated communications agency Wagstaffs, the app uses both 2D overlays and 3D geometry to enable users to view the mechanical, electrical and public health elements in an augmented reality environment.
Vince Ugarow, Hilson Moran Director, said: “Our app lets people look beyond façades into the inner workings of buildings through the use of BIM. It’s a new and flexible tool that can be used to help clients and wider industry professionals understand the advantages of BIM technology.”
Louise Ball, Head of Marketing & Communications at Hilson Moran said: “We are thrilled to have won the award and to be recognised for our work in BIM. We developed this idea to overcome the challenge of the behind-the-scenes nature of what really makes buildings work and it has been exciting to see it through from a concept to reality.”
The Digital Impact Awards is a leading event in the Digital Marketing industry with over 20 categories across a range of sectors.
