INNOVATION MEETS R7

INNOVATION MEETS R7

Watch how Kier employed digital tools and innovative techniques to deliver one of the UK’s most prestigious new office developments.

“R7” is an impressive mixed-use commercial scheme that forms a key part of London’s 67 acre King's Cross regeneration. The £70M project, developed by Argent LLP and designed by Duggan Morris Architects, offers 14,400 square metres of office space across 10 storeys, together with a publicly accessible “internal street” at ground floor level that boasts shops, restaurants and an Everyman Cinema.

Kier’s project team employed offsite manufacturing techniques to drive quality and reduce the programme while using digital tools such as “Holobuilder” and “Matterport”; an impressive virtual reality capture system.

2018's TECH TRENDS

Technology is having an ever-greater impact on construction, with ideas that were once thought of as gimmicks or the stuff of science-fiction now being steadily incorporated into the industry. From autonomous vehicles to exoskeletons, we've rounded-up the 8 construction tech trends that you MUST keep your eyes on in 2018.  

4D VIRTUAL REALITY

The team delivering one of London’s tallest buildings is working in a "4D virtual reality" environment, enabling them to plan and sequence their works in an immersive space. The innovation enables project teams to move through their programmes in an immersive virtual space; seeing how works will develop before they occur on site.
