Communicating The New

A Virtual Public Hearing for Infrastructure is a critical step to success. When FDOT introduced innovative traffic flow designs like the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) and Continuous Flow Intersection (CFI), educating drivers how to navigate the new designs was critical. For that reason, 123BIM technology was utilized to illustrate not only the new driving dynamics but communicate these complexities to virtual community stakeholders. Here’s the story . . .

123BIM – Production to Delivery

First, What is 123BIM?

123BIM is an interactive 3D model of your design using your data for existing conditions and proposed designs. Our interactive models can be used with an integrated suite of viewing and navigation technologies designed to make visualization an integral part of the project development process. Accelerate review and approval time to keep your projects on schedule! We bring your projects to life in a way everyone can understand, while staying on top of design changes in real-time rather than available time, saving valuable staff hours.

Virtual Public Hearing

The purpose of the public hearing was for Florida DOT to provide the community with information about the I-75 at Colonial Boulevard Interchange design. Due to social distancing restrictions Florida DOT decided to use a Virtual Public Involvement (VPI) website to engage with the public, which made the use of 3D visualization even more critical for clear and effective communication. RDV Systems makes your virtual public hearing for infrastructure a smooth and successful process.
