ReconstructED

Start the journey to VR in your classroom!

With ReconstructED, you can bring construction sites into the classroom, and release the power of your students imaginations!

Augmented and virtual reality are shaping new ways for built environment professionals to communicate with each other, and with communities they are working in. With ReconstructED, you can prepare your students for this future world of work from the comfort of your own classroom.

Not got the tech yet? Not to worry - ReconstructED can work as a 3D walk-through environment.

Design the COP

Developed with partners for COP26 in Glasgow, COYO launched a challenge for students: could you design a centre for our planet? 

Design the COP is now a DEC Award that can be studied by students anywhere around the world. If you choose to locate your design in Glasgow, then ReconstructED will enable your students to explore the site in 3D and VR, and import their designs into the virtual environment!

Explore the VeloPark 

Developed with partners and the DEC Consortium led by London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), ReconstructED enables your students to explore the VeloPark in 3D and VR. 

We've created a lesson plan that introduces surveying and enables students to understand the site - including orientation, measuring, tools and more.

We are also welcoming East Bank Partners to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a new design challenge - Design an Exhibition Space - that schools in east London can participate in during the 2022-23 academic year.

The VR model of the VeloPark and surrounding areas was created using surveying drones with mounted lasers! 

Why ReconstructED?

Aspiring design, engineering and construction professionals need to think carefully about their building site. That’s why we’ve created ‘reconstructED’, a tool that allows you to bring the site to the classroom and visit it virtually, using your VR headset or your desktop PC!  

Whether they’re designing a climate science education centre in Glasgow, engineering a bridge across the River Ganges or constructing a school in rural Uganda, one of the most important factors ‘built environment’ professionals must consider is: “Where is my site and what does it look like?”  

It’s the job of GEOSPATIAL SURVEYORS (often referred to as ‘land surveyors’) to gather all this information. They are often the first people on site and work closely with other built environment professionals throughout the project timeline.  

As you venture through the DEC Learning Programme, you’ll also need to understand the why, what, how and where of a particular site – but this can be difficult. Building sites can be dangerous places, they may not be nearby or be easily accessible.

In ReconstructED, you’ll be able to do many of the things Geospatial Surveyors do – from measuring the site to locating obstacles such as rivers, roads, buildings and trees.  

You’ll understand the orientation of the site (where North, South, East and West is), what features lie in each direction and learn how the sun might affect your building design.  

Check your specs! ReconstructED works on PC only and may not work on older computers, particularly where VR is being used.

We hope you enjoy using it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it!
