City of Bochum plans the new youth welfare office

With the employee conference, the plans are presented

New Work in the city: Planning progress can be experienced and imagined virtually.

Modern city management - move to new premises

When companies or administrations move, employees leave their familiar working environment and have to adjust. Familiar habits are broken, traditional privileges are lost. Rarely is everyone enthusiastic. New Work means change!

  • Virtual presentation of the planning data
  • Workshops in tuijo on furniture and materials
  • 2D plans become walkable

Employee conference with the key messages on New Work

New Work is a mindset. Interior design can provide a framework, but New Work is nowhere a foregone conclusion. There is a lot to communicate, experience, learn, communicate again, redo and communicate again. Why is something done differently, what is the benefit, why does it make sense to leave out something else?

Virtual Twins

Not everyone sees themselves as winners from change. When an entire organization moves, there is friction. It's inevitable. Curiosity about where you'll soon be working meets a desire to have a say. How should it look, what is really modern? Are your own plants still allowed and how far is the way to the coffee machine? Do I really have to work in an open space? And what does clean desk policy mean in reality?

Then the professional side: There must be shelters for personal counseling in youth work, how can visitors:inside be cared for separately in case of doubt? Are there creative spaces for design thinking workshops? Quiet and retreat rooms, focus rooms for individual work? Many find it difficult to imagine on the basis of the colorful 2D supervision plans. Where was north again?

All the better if you can walk through the rooms. If you can find out about the planning status together with colleagues and make constructive contributions - that's modern urban management.

Using spaces before they are built

It takes several years from the initial building planning processes to construction and occupancy completion. Early on, the plans are on the table, but only a few have insight or can interpret them correctly. Until now, there was no thought of using the plans even before the building was completed. This is now changing. 3D models can be built from the planning data. These can be viewed in VR on a smaller scale or in perspective from above. Or you can walk through the new building directly together.

Web-based, no additional equipment needed. If you disregard the camera and the headset, which is available anyway through zoom and team sessions. With tuijo, builders can benefit from planning data for much longer. Thanks to the virtual use of 3D rooms during the construction phase, users already know their way around. When the move is due, they will have experienced the first workshops virtually in the rooms and will be able to use the virtual twin for remote meetings even after moving in. Investments in corporate architecture thus pay off a second time in VR.
