Since 1957, virtual reality (VR) has been used for manifold purposes – starting from gaming, music videos to simulations and product prototyping. Construction professionals are also choosing BIM vr in architecture, structural and MEP services to underpin digitized technologies for efficient building design, delivery and maintenance of physically built asset throughout the project lifecycle.
Virtual reality in construction takes the building design engineers to 3D environment, which is a different from an actual situation. The 3d effect provides an accurate representation of the construction with various elements as if in reality. In 2016, BIM engineers first used VR models to assess the feasibility of building plans. In 2017, a national initiative of the construction sector – Open Construction Day was arranged to provide VR demo to the general public. The demonstration was aimed at visiting construction sites that are normally inaccessible. The demo was executed using Samsung Gear helmets to walk through a VR model of a finished construction. Currently, construction professionals, including design build firms, contractors, structural engineers and architects have started exploring the advantages of 3D BIM Virtual Reality.
What is virtual reality in construction?
Virtual reality in construction happens to be the next level of 3D modeling. Just like 3D modeling, it comprises a comprehensive virtual model of the project. VR takes the users directly inside the virtual environs, immersing users into a virtual design build space. Using high-precision infrared sensors of virtual design and construction (VDC construction), enhanced tracking of construction is undertaken. VDC integrated Building Information Modeling or VDC BIM helps to accurately replicate an entire building, providing a perfect BIM execution plan for building design project compared to a computer screen or a print-out.
Advantages of BIM Virtual Reality:
- Project Viability – VDC engineers assess the project viability at its inception. Using VDC BIM at the design stage, engineers are able to visualize the real picture of the project, considering the environmental elements. VDC construction integrated with BIM helps to make an accurate project estimate without any scope for errors, simulating the completed project as it would be.
- Design Fine-Tuning – BIM VR in architecture helps to fine-tune the design build solution. VDC BIM engineers show their clients the virtual walkthroughs of projects, exploring the finished projects at different stages. VDC construction provides customers greater transparency about the design build changes. Consequently, this helps to make design changes before construction without wasting any time, resource, or money.
- Construction Safety – VDC engineers pick up potential hurdles before construction through virtual reality and prevent safety issues like space constraint and tricky maneuvering of significant elements throughout the area of the new building.
- Improved Planning – VR in architecture, structure and mep services provide improved planning for construction using BIM virtual reality, avoiding additional costs and problems throughout the project. Clients are able to make necessary changes by visualizing building designs before installation.
