New ways of looking at projects

At Aurecon we embrace visual technologies to provide the best possible outcomes for our clients. We have been using 3D visualisation for more than 10 years to offer our clients new ways of looking at projects.

3D interactive visualisations are changing the way we understand and interact with projects by allowing design models to be dynamically viewed and navigated like an interactive computer game.

Click on the video on the left to see examples of our 3D visualisation work.


This eNewsletter features recent appointments, award wins, project updates, news on our community initiatives and our latest thinking.

Please contact anyone at Aurecon if you have any questions regarding the contents of this eNewsletter.
