Renewal SA

case study


The Tonsley Innovation Precinct is an new and exciting redevelopment of the old Mitsubishi site in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. One challenge with the ongoing redevelopment is to explain and showcase the precinct in a way that is as innovative and unique as the businesses and projects within it. Initially the shared vision was to capture a virtual tour for Google Street View. Following the success of that project, Renewal SA returned and the vision was expanded to build an interactive site CloudTour and in particular, to engage an international audience during a delegation tour to Europe with custom branded VR headsets.


Our team captured a full virtual tour of the Tonsley Innovation Precinct, including TAFE SA, Flinders University, community areas and businesses within the precinct. A series of aerial panoramas were also captured.

The custom CloudTour begins with an aerial panorama which captures and gives context to the entire site by incorporating map pins and a menu for navigation. Using our 360-degree rendered images, users can view future plans of the precinct (Tenancy 4 and Ageing Well Living Lab). The Tonsley Innovation Precinct corporate video is incorporated into the tour (MAB – Central Forest). The tour is compatible with desktop, mobile and VR headsets. Custom branding is used throughout to match their brand guide. The tour will be continually updated as the precinct grows and changes.


The full virtual tour of the precinct and its businesses is available for viewing on Google Street View and Google Maps. The custom CloudTour is available at for viewing on all devices, including with the Tonsley custom cardboard headsets.

To ensure fast load times internationally, the tour is hosted on a globally-distributed network
