- World’s first real-scale walk-through technology launches in Perth
- The “game changer” will help industry professionals improve their design and construction
- $60 million has already been invested in PropTech Hub WA members in the past two years
Lifesize Plans, the world’s first provider of real-scale walk-through technology aimed at assisting in the design and construction of new homes has launched a new facility in Perth.
The company helps different segments of the property and construction industry and gives stakeholders the ability to “walk through” a site before a brick is laid, by using state-of-the-art projection technology to highlight the layout of upper and lower floors, external landscaped areas, common areas and renders.
Lifesize Plans CEO James Hickey said the new Osbourne Park facility will allow the local industry to improve designs for better building and delivery of purposeful spaces.
Mr Hickey said, “Industry professionals see Lifesize Plans as an investment, with clear benefits to their customer service.”
“Design approval based on a life-sized scale experience before building creates greater efficiencies and peace of mind for all parties before construction commences.”
A “game-changer” for design
This ability to have all stakeholders connect and achieve their project vision makes Lifesize Plans a game-changer for both designers and end-users prior to building Mr Hickey said.
The technology can also be used as a sales tool similar to a display suite but on a 1:1 scale and the capability for immediate, personal collaboration and feedback adds incredible value to property design.
He said, “The collaboration between project stakeholders on designs presented at Lifesize Plans adds value to architects, designers, builders and site owners through increased customer satisfaction, reduced build costs, and improved sales processes.”
WA PropTech on the rise
PropTech Hub WA General Manager Cullum Ashton said the addition of Lifesize Plans to the Perth industry highlights the state of the market.
He said, “More than a dozen Australian and international property and construction technology companies are entering the Perth market, indicating the strength of the Western Australian economy.”
“Lifesize Plans’ investment into Perth adds to the $60 million already invested in PropTech Hub WA members in the past two years. I believe the property and construction sector will embrace technologies such as Lifesize Plans to better improve customer experience and also increase staff capabilities. This is evident by the amount of interest in PropTech Hub WA from industry members.”
Since launching its Sydney flagship site in 2017, Lifesize Plans have rapidly expanded its operations and have recently opened its first international franchise in Southern France.
The company is also offering the Western Australian Government the use of the facility for the next 12 months for any social or affordable housing project in a bid to combat the current housing and homelessness crisis.
