Digital Engineering


Realistic, Large Scale Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

In a market saturated by single model virtual reality and augmented reality tools, DBM Vircon provides innovation through specialized processing, federation and model enhancement, utilizing extremely large numbers of models from various authoring packages. Capable of spanning the entire project lifecycle, models can produce innovative conceptualizations for build-ready plans and ongoing management support.

Our virtual reality and augmented reality models enable you and your client to experience and visualize the project ahead of construction, facilitating the expedition of design review and sign-off procedures. They facilitate efficient communication with key stakeholders and the general public, enhance proposals and tender submissions, as well as marketing materials and PR efforts. They also serve as useful tools for your design teams when reviewing perspectives, scales and usability.

Digital Engineering – Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Capabilities

Engineering Precision

Our augmented and virtual reality renderings, 3D models, documentation and cut-aways enable you to explore, validate and communicate designs to your clients, as well as other project stakeholders.


With visualisations that incorporate lifelike textures and details like light and shadows, your clients can see the space from every possible angle and get a feel for size and layout, expediting approvals.


Win more competitive bids by incorporating our superior quality, highly accurate augmented and virtual reality renderings, site logistics and more in your next marketing presentation.


When it comes to maintenance shut-downs, our animations reduce schedule slippage and safety risks, by ensuring all stakeholders (which can be hundreds of people on large job sites) are engaged.


With all stakeholders able to visualise the construction timeline, critical issues and clashes can be effortlessly identified, with necessary changes to your construction schedule being managed with ease.


Proposed projects can be rejected due to uncertainty around their appearance. Accurate, augmented and virtual reality models reduce this uncertainty, increasing the likelihood of government approval.

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality – Delivery

DBM Vircon’s Approach

A unique combination of industry leading modeling experience and technical animation skills allow our teams to produce the most compelling visual representation of your project and perspective.

Our wide variety of models—from generic masses for spatial awareness, to photo realistic renders for presentations and customer engagement are presented in our custom designed virtual reality and augmented reality platforms. We tailor these deliverables based on our clients’ needs to support and enable effective communication in VR and AR modes.

We specialize in the optimization of differing and wide-ranging data sets. BIM, GIS, spatial data sets and visual assets are used to create our virtual reality and augmented reality environments. Our digital engineering workflows make this a seamless step.

The advancements in virtual reality and augmented reality technologies are fast paced, we thrive at staying up to date with these advancements remaining a preferred partner in VR and AR delivery.
