Emerging technologies—such as augmented reality (AR), reality capture, and wearable technology—are reducing project costs, improving communication and collaboration with remote teams, and letting us experience information in a way never possible before. In this presentation, we’ll share experiences from a large natural- and built-asset firm regarding how we’re using AR to deliver enhanced value to our clients in multiple ways: 1) on-site, full-scale AR design visualization; 2) 360-degree reality capture; and 3) hands-free remote communication and documentation. Attendees will learn the workflows for each application and value captured by clients and staff. Our examples will include integrations with Revit software, Navisworks software, and BIM 360 software, and we’ll examine use of hardware and software like Microsoft HoloLens, RealWear HMT-1, 360-degree cameras, VisualLive, Librestream Onsight Connect, and HoloBuilder.
