Want to see what that new office space might look like when finished? Prentice Office Environments, a Buffalo-based supplier of Steelcase and other office furniture and equipment, has launched a new virtual-reality tool designed to create a visual 360-degree rendering of new or redesigned space before it's actually done.
Similar "pilot floors" or "mock-ups" are growing in popularity within the commercial real estate field, but virtual reality enables clients to see what works or doesn't earlier in the process.
"This is a cutting-edge opportunity for the commercial real estate community to attract new business to Buffalo and change how the public sees and experiences existing space," said Jan Malof, Prentice Office president and owner. "Business owners will now be able to step inside a virtual model of their unbuilt office."
