Rabobank is a Dutch multinational banking and financial services company. The organisation is among the world’s 25 largest financial institutions.
For the new regional headquarters of Rabobank Gouwestreek, located in the Gouda area, iTZiT developed an animation of the final design, as well as an interactive and virtual reality prototype of the building. A good example of re-use of a BIM model for multiple purposes. With these tools, customers, visitors and employees are able to learn about the new building in multiple ways: either via watching the design video or by taking a VR tour and experience the site and features in a truly immersive way. The 3D application also offers future possibilities for integration of live data, and thus visual maintenance and monitoring.
By re-using the model for various communication purposes, different stakeholder groups can be informed. For example, nearby residents are more involved and learn about what is to come. And VR enables opportunities to train employees on the building’s layout and features.
