Why They Came to Umbra

The AECOM team decided to benchmark the application of digital workflows and immersive technology in structural engineering. Spearheaded by a Director, Regional Director and Principal Engineer from their London office, the team explored leading technology and its applications to their typical workflow.

Their Feedback

“This [Umbra Composit] has allowed us to divert our own resources away from model optimization, thus speeding up the process of MR model creation so we can focus our efforts on communicating and reviewing our engineering designs.”

-Matt Burton, Principal Engineer, AECOM Sports

Multi-Device Benefits

The team notes that thanks the Umbra Composit they were able to take a model of the Al Wakrah Stadium from Revit and optimize it in 30 minutes to be streamed on an Apple iPhone (with ARKit) as well as on Microsoft’s Hololens.

Communication Throughout

The AECOM team also states this solution ‘takes a fraction of the time and resource to produce and as a means of communicating an evolving design or engaging in the review of a construction detail prior to fabrication it is a very valuable tool.’
