Having the ability to show the phasing of a construction project can help you communicate a lot about your design and how it will be built. Phasing is also visually impressive and can help wow your customers. 

In Lumion, there are 4 ways to approach construction phasing. Chris Welton is a seasoned Lumion user who took the time to put together four tutorials, each one summarising a phasing method.
