UKI Arkkitehdit Oy

Utilising Cave in construction planning is in accordance with the principles of sustainable development. UKI Arkkitehdit has been involved in developing the laboratory from the beginning.

”Thanks to the fact that the model’s perspective matches reality and shows the truth in practice better than mere measurements, we are able to repair possible problems in advance instead of expensive repair after years of use.”

The City of Oulu

Kaleva newspaper wrote an article about the planning of Hiukkavaara district in Oulu on 8 May. The article describes a test group who familiarised themselves with the construction plans with the help of a 3D model in Oulu UAS’ 3D virtual laboratory Cave on Tuesday 7 May.

This is perhaps the first time in Finland that a group of citizens estimate a model of the town planning implemented in a new way, planning architect Jere Klami from the city of Oulu’s Urban and Environmental Services estimates. He considers the 3D model an interesting tool for planning and is convinced that it will become more common in all other kinds of planning as well.

– It is cost-effective. Mistakes can be fixed and changes made for free, Klami says in the article.

More and more often, the means of digital marketing are used to promote tourism. One way to stand out is to create a 3D virtual model of the destination. The model helps consumers explore the destination and its details in a virtual environment.

Oulu University of Applied Sciences (Oulu UAS) has implemented a 3D virtual model of the Hailuoto island in co-operation with Stormbit Ltd. The project’s primary aim is to promote tourism in Hailuoto. The key marketing message is the island’s nature, exoticism, tranquillity, peaceful environment, and the sea – the right atmosphere. In the model, a tame seagull named Okki nesting in Marjaniemi guides the traveller along the< landscapes of Hailuoto.

The aim of the pilot production is also to create a functioning service model for increasing awareness and interest towards travel destinations in the region.

The 3D virtual model made of Hailuoto will be published at Oulu UAS (Kotkantie 1, Oulu) on Wednesday 8 May at 12 am. In the event a group of sixth graders from Liminganlahden yhtenäiskoulu will familiarise themselves with the model. The pupils are going on a school trip to Hailuoto on 13–15 May. The model will help them explore the destination in advance.
