3D animation shows new Sainsbury’s store rising from the ground
Using the available BIM models, CADS’ 3D visualisation team created an animation showing the Sainsbury’s building rising from the ground, starting with the structural shell. Once the building is complete including the Sainsbury’s branding, the viewer is taken inside the store, up the travelator and into the empty store. The space is then quickly filled with the mechanical and electrical features followed by the retail fixtures and fittings.
The animation then demonstrates the range of information that can be added to the model from other data sources such as the macro-space detail from CADS’ StoreSpace®, micro-space information and additional specifications for equipment via ICON/Sainsbury’s specification management system.
Finally, the animation completes the picture by filling the aisles and shelves with products, while taking the viewer on a walk through the store, creating a real sense of the completed store’s look and feel.
