John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) used cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) technology to help win a major new contract with Southeast Asia’s largest airline.

We are designing and manufacturing the 175,000 square feet (16,335 sq m) hangar for Lion Air at Batam Airport, a short ferry ride from Singapore.

Our team used VR headsets to impress senior airline executives with a virtual 3D tour of the proposed development as part of their presentation to win the multi-million pound project.

Now we are setting our sights on delivering the first steelwork later this year and will supervise construction of the hangar – for maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft.

Bid Manager, Benjamin Riviere said: “This is our first development for Lion Air and our first at Batam Airport.

“We were able to give them an exciting opportunity to see how the hangar would realistically look and work at a very early stage.

“Our ability to create these cutting-edge VR presentations for an immersive […]
