Virtual Reality

Delivering a truly immersive 360 ° experience complete with sound to assist contractors, consultants and stakeholders in visualising, interacting and deciding on construction options prior to build.  

Sometimes a movie just doesn't cut it, when you need to freely move around your virtual project and experience realistic site conditions VR is what you need.


Less accidents

Faster decision-making

Lower costs

Less claims

Improved margins

Higher quality asset information

Enhanced Public Relations

Increased stakeholder engagement

As design complexity increases so does your risk. We build digital twins to rehearse construction, operation and maintenance tasks, improving your project outcomes...

  • Aid design integration during the development cycle
  • Prove the design is constructible
  • Rehearse construction logistics prior to site deployment
  • Eliminate abortive works - reducing time and cost
  • Practice operating and maintaining the asset before construction
  • Achieve faster stakeholder approval and improve public relations
  • Optimise whole life costs

Why SPI?

Our clients trust SPI to deliver realistic, accurate and interactive models to be used for a broad range of applications. Our solutions help you engage with internal and external stakeholders to prove compliance with requirements.

SPI has a large modelling team supporting projects and Enterprises with a wide variety of solutions. From laser scanning and point cloud conversion to immersive interactive virtual reality environments.

Whether you are developing early engineering options, require visual method statements or need to provide operator training simulations, we have the skills and experience to meet your requirements.

Reality Modelling

It's hard to visualise complex design proposals, using reality modelling provides a layer of realism built upon trusted engineering data. These models can be utilised in CAD & BIM authoring software to maintain geometry and trust, but they can also be delivered via interactive applications allowing users the freedom to move, query and comment. Especially useful for stakeholder engagement to eliminate interpretation.

4D Construction Rehearsals

Construction programmes are complex and difficult to visualise. 4D allows tasks to be rehearsed by linking the schedule with the model. Manage change, logistics and identify potential clashes early. Particularly useful on multi-disciplinary projects which require an integrated programme, our 4D solution helps managers to mitigate risk.

3D asset modelling

From laser scanning and point cloud processing to visualising your asset database, our modelling teams are here to help. Delivering accurate and compliant 3D models to a wide range of industry standards.  Looking for attributed models for BIM? We can help you.

Safety Critical Modelling

When you need to make safety critical decisions during the design phase in circumstances such as Rail Signal Sighting or Human Factors our safety critical modelling service delivers an accurate, trusted, change managed solution allowing options to be developed and tested with confidence.

Simulated Environments

From construction installation methodologies and operator training to maintenance training and counter- terrorism scenarios, together with our trusted partner network we deliver highly realistic environments complete with artificial intelligence to meet your specific requirements. When you need a trusted, cost-effective simulation, choose SPI.

"It has been noted by the Network Rail project team that SPI’s Virtual Reality product is the best seen."
