Game changer in virtual realisations

first_imgA new 3D virtualisation platform, using the latest gaming and architectural technology, is now available to the property market. Revvis offers the ability to virtually walk through ‘live’ any yet-to-be-built or existing property. You can accompany and guide a potential buyer, and you can both interact with the property, adding a new dimension to viewings.The user is able to plan and decorate the interior and the garden through a specialised menu. For example, you can view various kitchen and bathroom options; choose furniture and move it around; change the colour of the walls; select furnishings, fixtures, fittings, flooring and tiles; measure windows for curtains; check that their television isn’t too big for the living room or decide where would be best for their barbecue and outdoor furniture to go. It is the only way to truly visualise the property as their new home.Having recently launched in March 2020, Revvis is already working with a wide range of property professionals including housebuilders, developers including two of the top five real estate agents in the UK.Paul Spencer, Managing Director of Sales (UK) for Revvis said, “Virtual tours should be more than just showing a video or walkthrough, but creating greater engagement in the property and ultimately converting it to either a physical viewing, maximising sales both off-plan and existing.“We at Revvis strongly believe the short-term norm of virtual viewings will become the standard practice for estate agents and developers going forward as businesses adapt to a more dual process to qualifying properties, that is by both the agent or developer and potential buyer vetting before a physical viewing takes place.”This link is to one of Revvis’ recent visualisations of Gabriel Square – a townhouse in a gated development in St Albans.3D virtualisation platform gaming and architectural technology VR walkthrough Revvis paul spencer virtual property tours virtual viewings July 1, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?

UK sets out “battle plan” to try to contain spread of coronavirus

first_img“This is a national challenge … I think we’ll get through it in very good shape,” Johnson said at a news conference alongside England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty and the government’s Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance.The government said its strategy was aimed at delaying the peak of the outbreak until the summer when the weather is warmer and the health service is under less seasonal pressure. This would also allow more time for the development of vaccines.Possible options include discouraging unnecessary travel as part of what it called a “social distancing” strategy, delaying non-urgent health care, and drafting in health professionals who have retired.If staff shortages impact emergency services such as the police force, they will focus on responding to serious crimes and maintaining public order. Johnson said the army was also ready to step in and provide back up to the police if needed. If the outbreak worsens or is severe and prolonged, the government said it would move from seeking to contain and delay the outbreak to mitigating its impact.The government will launch a major public information campaign later this week, run from a “war room” in the Cabinet Office, setting out steps people can take to limit the spread of the virus, such as washing their hands regularly.Johnson’s office said it would also publish legislation in the coming weeks which would give the government necessary powers to prepare for and tackle the outbreak.Whitty said he thought it was unlikely Britain would be in the situation of locking down individual cities, but all options would be kept available.Finance minister Rishi Sunak has asked officials to draw up “further measures to support the public health response, businesses and the economy as needed” and will give an update when he presents his first budget to parliament on March 11.Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said policymakers around the world were working on a “powerful and timely” response to the economic hit from coronavirus.”It is reasonable to expect a response that reflects a combination of fiscal measures and central bank initiatives,” he said.Topics : Britain unveiled its “battle plan” to tackle the spread of coronavirus on Tuesday, warning that as many as a fifth of employees could be off work at the peak of the outbreak.The United Kingdom has so far had 39 confirmed cases of the virus, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was “highly likely” the country would see a growing number of cases.The government’s plan includes possible school closures, home working and cancelling large-scale gatherings to delay the peak of the outbreak. Businesses could be given extra time to pay their taxes if they are facing short-term cash flow issues.last_img read more

first_imgCostas Takkas pleaded guilty to money laundering in a New York Court Former Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) general secretary, Costas Takkas, pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering conspiracy in a New York federal court on Wednesday.The 60-year-old Takkas is a former attaché of former CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb. He faced charges relating to the transmission of millions of dollars in bribes paid during the official’s tenure in office.According to documents presented in court, Webb received a $US3m bribe to guarantee media and  marketing rights for the home World Cup qualifiers of Caribbean teams during the 2018 and 2022 campaigns.  One of the marketing companies involved in the deal, Traffic USA, conspired with Takkas to secretly funnel half of Webb’s $3 million bribe through front companies and accounts which he controlled.  The other, Media World, paid approximately $500,000 of its $1.5 million bribe through a sham transaction involving a false invoice, to accounts controlled by Takkas.Webb, who is currently under arrest at his home in Georgia, pled guilty to similar charges last year and will face sentencing later this year.Takkas was, along with Webb, one of 14 officials arrested in Zurich two years ago.  He faces a maximum of up to 20 years in prison.Webb sentencing hearing delayed againlast_img read more
