AR Construction Solutions

The global construction industry is worth an estimated 10 trillion USD. As the global population continues to rapidly grow and our presence continues to expand further across the globe, construction projects are very common.

Given the scale of the construction industry even the smallest new efficiency can result in incredible savings. Augmented Reality could transform the very nature of construction to make new builds cheaper and safer.

How Will AR Affect Construction?

Augmented Reality takes the real world and adds to it. This is perfect for construction as it can help architects, workers and shareholders to visualise every single part of a construction project from beginning to end until the project is a reality. There are countless advantages to this and it will help result in buildings that are built quicker and to a stricter budget. The buildings will also, ultimately, be safer. This is important as our urban centers continue to rapidly expand in size.

Typical use cases

Renderings of New Builds

The most obvious application of Augmented Reality in the world of construction is the visualisation of new construction projects. Architects will be able to design their projects with an understanding of how they will fit within the existing environment.

As construction projects continue to be built in more densely-populated areas this will become particularly important. This is also useful to pitch projects and for real estate agents to help new customers visualise their property.

Building Information Management (BIM)

As the property continues to evolve throughout the construction process the various stakeholders will be able to perfectly track their own particular areas of responsibility. Building Information Management or BIM is becoming more and more the standard in the industry.

Using this information, efficient maintenance and works can be done on new and existing buildings. Through AR applications, the BIM information can be overlaid on top of the existing building, to visualise the piping, electricity conduits, structural information and equipment data, in real time.

AR Walkthroughs

Once the initial foundations of a building have been set, Augmented Reality can be used to paint the remainder of the work onto that canvas. This means that stakeholders and workers alike can walk through the empty building but get a final view of the way everything will look in the end. This is useful for interior designers and owners who want to plan ahead.
