About this talk

In an age of perpetual advancing technology, it’s often difficult to keep up with what’s going to be the “next big thing”. Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction. As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction. The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual 3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether? Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space. In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:  What is Augmented Construction  Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry  How to use AR effectively  What role does data play in this?  Example projects, who’s using this now  The next step
