4D Construction Rendering for Health and safety equipment
TALLBOX was instructed to produce 4D construction rendering for marketing purposes. Depicting an ongoing construction project showcasing specific Health and Safety Hub equipment location and possibilities.
These types of renderings are often called 4D construction renderings or digital construction renderings.
We had two options, to build a complete CGI environment or use a 3D – photo technique.
Typically in our true fashion, we decided to use one of our virtual staging methods and made some precise adjustments to fit the need of the project.
Since it was more time-efficient and results – highly photorealistic. Just what we did in this residential project too.
To speed up the process, we decided to use a photo to 3D workflow. First, an aerial drone photograph was needed, from which several elements had to be removed to fit the scope of the project and the rest to be modelled and rendered entirely in 3D.
Since the brief was precise and not the typical 4D construction project, we had to establish a workflow with 5 phases.
All unnecessary photo details were removed (cars, trees, houses etc.), some in post-production and others using CGI techniques.
It was mainly modelling work. Modelling the three towers blocks, along with typical constructions tools, machines, and details, took two days. Additionally, some ready-made models were purchased to support and ease the project’s timeline.
One of the buildings had to be removed since it was a distraction preventing the visibility of the virtual pathways leading from and to each Hub. Each red line indicates paths workers will take to walk across the construction site, and red explanation markers represent the “health and safety” Hubs.
This was a details phase, which means that most of the models had to be refined. An entire section from the photo was replaced with a parking area modelled in 3D.
At the project’s final phase, all trees from the street next to the construction site were removed. In addition, further refinement of the models was introduced, along with texture replacements for additional realism.
At every phase of this 4D construction visualization, the main focal point for us was to follow the established plan and demonstrate all possible locations and variety of “health and safety hubs”.
