In the video below, senior architecture executives speak about how they’ve seen the value of Virtual Reality impact multiple facets of the AEC industry including lean construction, a decades-old practice that aims to minimize waste and maximize the value of construction projects.
Jason Goshart, Vice President at Skanska explains: “Contractors, developers, end users should care about Virtual Reality because it’s a tool that can let them visualize the end product of their project well before it’s even under construction.” Ken Kulaga, Senior Construction Manager from HCA Healthcare states: “It will be a great tool in the application of our industry…the application of VR is a tool that we can use that would eliminate having to build mock-ups, get a decision much earlier, gets speed to market a lot better with the project, and it gets the decision made by the staff and the users much quicker.”
WorldViz has worked with numerous leading Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) companies, including but not limited to Turner, DPR, JE Dunn, McCarthy, Forster+Partners, and HKS, to propel Virtual Reality to the vanguard of AEC design practices. The Vizard-powered Architecture Interactive (AI) software platform allows AEC professionals to eliminate physical mock-ups and streamline collaborative design reviews to a degree previously impossible. With AI, users can simply import existing 3d BIM files, connect to all VR hardware / software, and create custom interactive and immersive VR simulations with zero programming.
