AR and VR to Forge Virtual Construction Worksite

Construction Tech Review | Monday, June 24, 2019

With the development of AR and VR technologies, the future of architecture and construction in Tech-enabled reality is sure to boom. The market has a deeper horizon for its implementation in the sector.

FREMONT, CA: One of the world's oldest jobs is revolutionized by technological innovation. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have just broken into the scene and have already transformed civil construction. AR/VR advantages the entire construction team, including technicians, designers, architects, project managers, and service suppliers.

Unlike VR, which generates an entirely new and autonomous real-world environment, AR involves virtual components that communicate with existing ones. Virtual architectural designs can, therefore, be combined with the actual building site, improving effectiveness and precision, decreasing error incidence and saving time, money, and resources. Imagine customers coming to look at a freshly launched construction or remodeling project before it's constructed! Thus, VR technology makes this trustworthy. In particular, the process of design making has become more digital than before. The Building Information Modeling (BIM) became more and more crucial, as well. BIM has achieved recognition for each stakeholder in different aspects that democratize 3D modeling experiences. Builders and designers, therefore, use technologies such as VR to enhance their design perception. Furthermore, to speed up the decision-making process to briskly comprehend projects.

For architects, VR operates to assist them to comprehend their plan thoughts in conjunction with manual sketches and digital designs. The benefit of using VR is the improved feeling of measure and spatial relationships in the design studio. It enables real-time feedback. By allowing more stakeholders to check design ideas carefully, VR has the quality to quicken design-related choices; AR is more like an action plan.

AR helps bring the BIM model to the construction site, enabling building teams to experience it in an intense 3D environment fully. It also promotes the construction sector to examine building systems and assemblies' spatial relationships. So, in a linked BIM globe, AR and VR can alter completely how we believe, design, and grow.

VR, AR, and other associated techniques can provide a digital benefit where traditional media have not been able to do so a few years ago.
