The Virtual Built Environment Element Explorer (VBEEE) software enables learners to explore and experience the construction process. Learners are given an opportunity to choose from 3 different briefs to construct a building virtually.
This includes an industrial building, a house, and a building made offsite. The brief asks learners to consider the building performance, comfort, sustainability, and cost measures at each stage. Your building efforts are provided in a report!
