WDBE UPDATES // WDBE Talks episode 16 released

Ben Guy Brings a Human Scale to Planning with 3D Tech

Dr. Ben Guy, the founder and CEO of UC 3D Planning Technologies – Urban Circus – is Aarni Heiskanen’s guest on the WDBE Talks podcast. They discuss the use of 3D visualization technologies to bring a human scale to urban development and construction. Ben is a keynote speaker at WDBE 2022.

Urban Circus is a family-owned, 20-years-old Australian business. Examples of their work include videos, stories, VR, AR, interactive models, gamification, simulations, and planning workflows.

Guest of this episode: 

Ben is a doctoral qualified urban and civil planner with 20 years commercial experience running Urban Circus 3D Planning. He’s built a 3D planning technology to support clients and users do better planning and make better plans. Better plans means contextualised and integrated in 3D reality, faster to build and easy to comprehend at the human scale for construction, users and maintenance. Better planning means multi-disciplinary, cross-organisation, collaborative, negotiated openly, clear and understood. In actuality much planning tends to be obfuscated, schematic, closed with vertically segregated silo-thinking.

When Ben brings the new 3D Planning methods to projects and organisations – transformations in planning quality, efficiency, culture and alignment tend to occur. This applies to planning for works, layouts, operations, development, construction, townscape and everything in between.

You can reach Ben on LinkedIn and at urbancircus.com.au. His #WDBE2022 keynote takes place on September 28, 2022. You can review the program and register for the event here.
