The limitations of static decision making in control room design

Traditional control room design rarely captures the interaction between people and their operating space. Plans, renders and documents are static representations that don’t represent the dynamic environment of a control room.

Key decision makers are not able to adequately understand all aspects of the operating environment from static designs alone and therefore the design may not capture all key requirements. This can lead to sub-optimal performance of the control room.

VR, AR & MR improve control room understanding & decision making

Our interactive virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) & mixed reality (MR) spatial design tools are used to provide a superior immersive perspective though depth, movement and audio – resulting in improved understanding and decision making.

Applications include design, design reviews, live decision making, human factor assessments, stakeholder engagement and training. Contact us to ensure you achieve an optimal design for your control room.


“We found CADwalk to be extremely responsive and innovative in developing the VR models for this project. Highly recommended.”
