The Workshops Rail Museum

Client: Queensland Rail Limited

Year: 2019

Location: Ipswich, QLD

Team: John Philipp



The North Ipswich Railway Workshop complex is one of the most important rail-related heritage sites in Queensland and is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register. The property operator, Queensland Rail, required a 3D record of the century old site to create a digital twin for a virtual reality museum in the future.

It was important that the entirety of the historic features including the buildings and workshops (interior, exterior, machinery, equipment and other contents) were thoroughly recorded in a manner that provides a platform for their future interpretation.

Orion was part of the Consultant Team selected to perform Terrestrial LiDAR scanning, photogrammetry and traditional survey. This information was used to build a digital twin of the site for use in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Systems for future museum operations.
