Virtual Reality Design in Construction

Virtual and augmented reality is emerging as a game-changing technology for the construction industry, as it can enhance collaboration among all project stakeholders before building even begins. Currently, the most common way to view 3-D models is on the 2-D screen of a tablet or laptop. Designers and builders can get more value out of the model when they’re able to fully immerse themselves in it. Companies such as IrisVR specialize in converting 3-D plans into a virtual reality (VR) experience.

Michael Gonzalez, preconstruction director at McCarthy Building Companies, said that virtual reality and augmented reality technologies allow the construction team to detect errors ahead of time and avoid costly mistakes. Stacy Scopano, senior construction industry strategy manager at Autodesk, said the proliferation of 3-D modeling software and new VR products like the Daqri Smart Helmet and Microsoft HoloLens are leading to the tipping point for VR in construction.
