On Demand through March 23, 2018

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

The rapid advancement of Virtual/Augmented Reality technology is no more relevant than in the AEC market. Construction progress assessment and validation has always been a highly visual process: work was not signed off on until a supervisor laid eyes on it and confirmed the work was done.

The difference today is that supervisors now have powerful new digital tools for visualizing and validating progress in the form of processes that can turn heaps of daily jobsite photos into geo-registered, 3D images. The data captured by those processes can then automatically be compared with digital construction models and schedules to audit, validate and record quantities of work accomplished to date.

 

During this webinar, you will:

  • Discover the latest trends and technologies fueling this advancement and the applications relevant to your workflow
  • Find out how this technology is expediting the planning and design process by allowing clients to be given a more accurate sense of designs early on so changes can be made with minimal disruption or delay 
  • Hear from early adopters of this technology to see how it is rapidly becoming a valuable assistant in their project controls workflow

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.
