Description

Join us for a guided tour of how Black & Veatch is exploring the potential impact of virtual-reality (VR) job sites on the future of design and construction. What's a VR job site, you ask? It is a virtual version of the actual job site, including cranes and temporary works. This virtual version can take many forms, ranging from 3D meshes to spherical photography. The idea is to create and use VR job sites for planning, safety, and historical purposes because VR eliminates assumptions and risk by capturing and portraying the actual job-site conditions, not just modeled conditions. Additionally—and most fun of all—you can immerse yourself in a VR job site or future design using first-person VR. Together we will explore real examples—proofs of concepts and ideas from infrastructure projects—including power plants and water projects. But it won't be a total space odyssey—some of the ideas we will explore together are being implemented today, and with ease! This session features ReCap, ReCap 360, and Revit. AIA Approved

Key Learnings

  • Get excited about the future of VR versions of job sites
  • Realize that we are closer than we think to making this a reality
  • Learn how to implement workflows for simple VR at your project
  • Leave with some way cool stuff to tell your friends

Ben Bringardner has been working with construction teams to push the boundaries of what is possible with technology on some of the world's largest projects, ranging from Medupi Power Station ($14-plus billion; 4,800 megawatt coal plant in South Africa) to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (2,000,000-square foot renovation; $2 billion). Despite a natural passion for exploring the future of technology in construction, Bringardner’s recent focus has been on making the rubber hit the road in the field, implementing real solutions. In his current role with Black & Veatch, he has invested himself in helping engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) infrastructure construction teams get more value from mobile tools, laser scanning, and virtual design and construction, with a special focus on advanced work packaging.
