    Abstract

    In any construction project, a design review process is used by the project team as a means to detect and identify discrepancies, errors and inconsistencies in designs. We established that the current approaches i.e. (1) paper-based checklist system, (2) with- assisted checklist system and (3) using PMUs are based heavily on 2D paper based drawings can be improved and enhanced by using VE-based design review system. Using this system designs can be better coordinated, visualised and understood, and errors can be reduced effectively. However, various development issues need to be considered before a VE based design review system can be fully implemented and usable. The main issues include checklists formation, user participation, software development, information management and leadership are discussed in this paper.
