Ouseburn’s Luminous Group creates ‘innovative’ VR construction site tech

UK cross reality firm, Luminous Group has teamed up with Aarsleff Ground Engineering to develop a state-of-the-art VR room.

The room is set to enable Aarsleff’s clients to virtually visit their construction site pre-build.

Luminous, based in the Toffee Factory in Ouseburn, delivers digital strategies to organisations and sectors through the latest 3D imaging and mixed reality technologies.

Now, Aarsleff Ground Engineering, a provider of ground engineering, sheet piling and geotechnical solutions, has invested in one of the company’s virtual reality rooms, now known by its employees as the ‘VROOM’.

Ben Bennett, founder of Luminous Group, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Aarsleff Ground Engineering, they’re a terrific company who are ahead of the curve in embracing virtual reality for their sites.

“We’re just at the beginning of our journey with them and it’s great that they’ve already identified so many potential areas that our technology can aid them with.

“VR really is the future of several industries and I have no doubt there is much more we can do with VR and AR technology.”

Soon, Luminous’ new application should allow Aarsleff’s existing customers and potential clients to understand the process on site.

Managing director, Kevin Hague, added: “In embracing VR, we also hope to tackle the challenge that ‘young people are not interested in construction’ by rolling out the virtual application at careers fairs and university shows.

“Students and aspiring engineers will be able to walk around on an Aarsleff site, helping them to understand several ground engineering disciplines and learn about the machinery operated on site – all whilst in a safe and engaging way.”
