Dr. Renate Fruchter


At the PBL lab, we have worked with 3D ICC’s Terf for over 5 years.  Our integrated R&D and education program focuses on AEC global teamwork engaging cross-disciplinary, globally distributed architects, structural engineers, MEP, construction managers, life cycle financial managers, and clients. Our research shows that using the immersive TERF significantly impacts product quality and process agility Terf enables team members to import large BIM models into the virtual world, experience and troubleshoot the virtual BIM building together as avatars to scale. Terf offers a platform in which global teams co-create their collaboration space that persistently maintains their content and models in context.
