ABSOLUTELY!! Working with the AECOM Viz team was again a HUGE success. The best part of the experience was sharing our vision of the meeting and working collaboratively to make it happen. With the most recent updates to the platform, we now have a public friendly menu guiding people to their area of interest. This was a huge success and greatly appreciated by our client and the public alike!
“This is how I really feel! My first experience working with the Viz Team was amazing! Going into the project, I had absolutely no idea what was involved. They met with us, answered all our questions and were there throughout the entire process, providing excellent advice and making the entire process fun. I have nothing but great things to say about them – they are all very talented and extremely professional!! Can’t wait to work with them again!!”
Team – There is no doubt this was group effort. The entire visual team did a phenomenal job on such an expedited schedule. Everyone should be very proud of their contributions and accomplishment. I am always in awe and grateful to work with this entire team. Each of the CEO Circle Team members were impressed by the room. You wowed them all.
While we developed the virtual room because we were unable to host in person stakeholder meetings during the pandemic, we found that the virtual room had some unexpected benefits over meeting in person. First, the virtual setting allowed those who would not otherwise be able to attend due to mobility, child care or work conflicts to participate in the engagement process. Second, the always-on nature of the room allowed County residents to engage with the Climate Action Plan materials when it was convenient for them.
AECOM’s Visualization Team delivered a high quality virtual room that has interactively informed the public of the East Colfax BRT project as it has moved forward through preliminary engineering and the NEPA process. The unique-to-Colfax graphics and user-friendly interface have facilitated an influx of positive public feedback on the project.
The American Planning Association’s National Capital Area Chapter selected M-NCPPC’s West Hyattsville Queens Chapel Sector Plan for the chapter’s 2021 conference to share virtual engagement success stories with planning professionals in the DC region. The virtual room that AECOM developed for the planning process was featured in the conference for its ability to provide a tailored experience for stakeholders, host live chat sessions, and get the community excited about the future of the neighborhood.
Seriously, none of this would be possible without you all. I cannot express my gratitude enough. It was an uphill battle (which seemed to only get steeper at the end). I’ve said it before, but we are incredibly appreciative of AECOM’s innovation when it came to pivoting to do this update completely virtual. The ingenuity of the virtual room gave us the opportunity to ensure stakeholder participation throughout this process as the World continued to rapidly change around us.

I really liked using the virtual room. It was easy to navigate during the interview and we had comments just on the room at the start from the client and how they liked it.
It was easy for our team to use and move around the room in real time. Helped that we choreographed it and placed the boards in consecutive order.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with the AECOM Viz Studio 360 team in turning an idea into an interactive virtual experience (for the AECOM Safeguard Hall).The team was so very helpful in making the vision of creating an engaging Safeguard experience into a reality, one which received overwhelmingly positive responses from a large number of AECOM end users across the globe .It was an amazing experience to work with the group, one that made me think in a different way.

I had a very positive experience working with Pao and Jeremy on the WEFTEC Virtual 360 room over the last few weeks. The quality of their work is also commendable as well as their ability to brainstorm and find creative solutions to some of the more abstract requests we received. Content and changes were made quickly and accurately – I could not have wished for a more capable team.
