Abstract

It is not uncommon that design and constructability errors are not detected until significant progress has been made in projects. Design and constructability errors have the potential to significantly impact cost, time, safety and quality of a construction project. It is envisioned that Virtual Reality (VR) can enhance communication among stake-holders and allow them to visualize design and constructability errors earlier in the project. This paper evaluates and compares three VR displays to view construction assemblies. The three VR displays compared were the CAVE™, a Head Mounted Display (HMD) and the Immersive Workbench (IWB). This paper presents the VR displays’: (1) Suitability to display 3D models, (2) Ability to show details and, (3) Ability to convey dimension and space.
