Utilizing VR for Construction as a Coordination & Communication Tool

By Sofia Jaramillo | Video

As the design and construction industry moves away from 2D documents and implements BIM across more processes, virtual reality (VR) tools can help stakeholders extract the most benefits from 3D modeling.

However, working remotely through the pandemic increased the need for design and virtual design and construction (VDC) teams to work on virtual reality. How can VR help bring us together in a hybrid work environment?

Watch this hands on demo on how Enscape, a real-time VR visualization tool, can help you with collaboration and communication with your clients and other project stakeholders with Brian Vizarreta who is a Solutions Marketing Manager for Structionsite and David Spergel, Applications Specialist from Microsol Resources.

By watching this presentation, viewers will be hearing how VDC teams can use virtual reality for:

  • Design review | Bringing the Owner and Facility Manager into the finished space in VR will assist with acceptance of the final product because the expectations will be aligned earlier
  • Logistics and planning | The ability to see things at a 1:1 scale or a tabletop view allows users to view the scenarios differently and bring up questions before mobilizing onsite
  • Mechanical coordination | Bring in the model in VR to view mechanical systems and penthouses for coordination and clash detection, begin conversations with subcontractors, and verify project scope
  • Getting started | Review the hardware requirements for virtual reality and some best practices
