Mills Group’s ability to bring our designs into fully-realized virtual environments for our clients is one of our strongest technology tools. Through the use of a Virtual Reality (VR) headset, our clients can step inside a project site with the capability to see things from unlimited perspectives. It also allows for interactive guided tours and encourages client feedback on adjustments they desire even as the details are being worked out.
Using this capability not only creates an experiential design/review process between the designer and the client, but it also offers our designers a deeper insight into the project details as they work. By entering the virtual space for review during the conceptual phase, our designers can prove or disprove concepts early on and in truly integrated ways. Checking dimensions, sight lines, and testing the overall feel of space in first person are not possible without the help of VR.
In addition, because our VR workflow is optimized for web use, we can work together with our teammates and clients across the country without having to gather in real space. Our software allows for browser/app viewing which offers our clients without VR headsets the ability to log in on their own computer, join us in virtual space, and enjoy seeing their project take shape right before their eyes.
