Gandy & Roberts - BIM for Augmented Reality (AR) on Construction Sites
The Augmented Reality project for construction sites will project a digital 3D model accurately over a building (or parts of it) under construction to visualise and communicate construction intent.
Applying this technology on a finished building will allow users to locate hidden construction objects and services (e.g. services in wall cavities or in-ground services).
AR is best done on projects where BIM is implemented and offers unique opportunities to visualise and communicate construction intent. Innovative IT solutions such as AR also allows the construction industry to offer exciting and future-proof employment and career opportunities.
The 3D model produced, and associated media, will be utilised in future AR and BIM training development.
Project duration: 12 months
Keystone funding: $10,000
