Pixel Image, a PropTech firm based in Edinburgh has developed one of the first 'intuitive image-based online specification systems' in the housing industry. The technology can display thousands of possible finished combinations throughout a home before the construction begins, allowing home buyers to get a picture of the finished project before renovations begin.
Developed and designed in-house by Pixel, the ‘Finishes SelectorTM’ system allows users to personalize and specify their choice of finishes, and integrate these into the supply chain for house builders and their procurement teams.
Scots housebuilder Springfield Properties has incorporated the system in its sales center at Bertha Park, the company's 3000-home development near Perth. It allows users to trial various combinations of tiles, worktops, flooring, kitchen cabinets, door handles, switches and sockets, and even wall colors, to see how their choices would look together before making their final selection.
Springfield’s chief executive Innes Smith said: “Customers can now design their new home at a time convenient to them and as often as they like, before visiting our developments or suppliers.”
