We are lucky to be alive during a time when rapid technological advancements make our lives much better, much easier, and in this case, give us a far better idea of what we are getting for our money. In the construction world, immersive 3D construction walkthroughs are changing the industry, allowing clients and project managers to better envision the project.
What Are Immersive 3D Construction Walkthroughs?
In its simplest terms, this is a virtual journey through the construction project. Rather than seeing a model or blueprint, the client can not take an immersive walkthrough of their home before a single shovel breaks ground. You are able to navigate the space, literally seeing every minute detail of the home and its functionality.
Benefits of Immersive 3D Construction Walkthroughs
Enhanced Visualization: believe it or not, the people that benefit the most from this are the architects, engineers, and designers. They are better able to see any design flaws that are present, they can better optimize the space, and can improve the aesthetics of the home right in the programming before presenting final plans.
Better Decision Making: most people look at blueprints and nod, as they fully understand what they are looking at, but we know that is not the case. These immersive walkthroughs enable the client to better see their project, ask more informed questions, and provide real-time feedback to the designers and architects about what is and is not working for them.
Cost Savings: one of the key elements of these immersive 3D walkthroughs is that you can avoid costly changes during the design phase of the project as well as expensive modification during the construction phase of the project.
Augmented and Virtual Reality
With this new programming, you are basically going to see two different methods used. The first being walkthroughs done on screens, such as what you see on virtual tours on realty sites. The second would be virtual reality, literally putting you in a virtual world to tour the home. You are able to do a virtual walk through, with 360-degree viewing angles, of every aspect of the home. This will revolutionize the industry, and builders who are not using this technology will be left in the dust.
There was a time when virtual reality was the future, but it is now the present. It is reshaping the construction business world at a rapid fire pace. This will serve as a bridge between the people who design and build these projects to the investors and clients that are paying for them. This technology brings your project to life and makes it understandable in a way that is simply impossible via a model or blueprint.
