Virtual Reality Tour of Finished Project

Keeping the public informed and updated about the progress of a project is essential. Sharing project information builds relationships between community and contractor, and often minimises incidents of complaint.

See the examples below for how one site took this the extra step:

  • Provided cardboard virtual reality glasses which work with a smartphone.
  • QR codes were distributed throughout the site in different locations.
  • The user had to scan the QR code with a smartphone then place their phone in the VR headset.
  • They were then able to view a BIM model of how that area would look upon completion.
  • The user was able to progress through the completed building by scanning different QR codes or focusing on different spots while in the virtual model.

This initiative helped bring the building to life for the contractor, client and user. As this particular project was a school, and students were able to participate, it had the added benefit of showcasing the construction industry and building their interest in the industry as a career option.
