The relationship between AUT (Auckland University of Technology) and P3D began back in 2014 when two student interns from AUT joined the P3D team.  In their newly found roles, they were keen to showcase AUT as they realised that this new way of presenting spaces would work perfectly for the numerous AUT buildings.

From an initial phone call to numerous site visits to the three Auckland campuses, P3D began shooting the imagery back in late 2016 and this continued into early 2017. Two photographers worked tirelessly to capture over 2200, 360 stills throughout the different lecture theatres, classrooms and common areas across all the campuses. This project involved distinct planning in which our project team had to work closely with AUT to pick the best time to shoot the buildings, taking consideration of room use, term time, weather, construction and so on. The imagery has been live on Google Maps for just under a year, however, the focus of the project was around building the custom tour. Each campus is broken down by building and floor levels which feature 360 stills showcasing the space. This immersive way of marketing the university will allow for more domestic and international students to view the university – find which classroom they may be in for the following semester or browsing the University as a whole.

The project in its entirety has been an immersive experience from start to finish. From business analysis, project lifecycle management, photography, design, implementation, to training – we are delighted with the result. This is the first University in New Zealand to be completely digitised in an immersive Virtual Tour.
