v.create as the first shared digital tool

Drees & Sommer experts have already proved the success of the collaboration through development of the shared configurator platform v.create. Over the past 1.5 years a tool has been developed, which will enable clients to configure office space productively and take a virtual tour through it. Integration into the digital planning environment makes it possible to link the procedure seamlessly with BIM processes. At present the responsible team is expanding this successful platform for other applications, e.g. for logistics industry or blue modularity.
