The Luminous Group has evolved over the last 15 years driven by innovation and new technology. Originally founded in 2004 by Peter Bennett and called Digital Surveys Ltd the business focused on dimensional control and survey services for the built environment and the oil and gas sectors.
In 2007 Peter’s son Ben joined the business and was tasked with identifying new markets and technologies that could be utilised to differentiate Digital Surveys from others in the market. This was followed by the companies first laser scanner purchase and a move into all things 3D. Over the subsequent years the team expanded gaining a reputation as innovators in the production of detailed building information models.
OUR VIRTUAL WORLD
As the companies expertise in all things 3D expanded the team looked to new ways to engage clients and interact with the content created. In 2014 the first Oculus Rift developer kit was released. Digital Survey immediately spotted an opportunity to take our 3D imaging and modelling skills and apply it to this new sector. Over the coming years the team expanded with the recruitment of a number of talented developers and 3D artists. Using Games engine technology the business expanded to offer development service building apps for mobile, AR and VR. To more accurately reflect this much wider 3D offering it was decided in 2016 to rebrand the company and the Luminous Group was born.
