Augmented reality (AR), along with virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR), provides a method to deliver information to users that places them in the digital context, and are all parts of what is coming to be known as extended reality (XR).

In construction, AR is most commonly used to display digital building information modeling (BIM) content onsite, allowing users, designers, owners, and workers to see what a building will be like before and during construction. Gregory Ceton, CSI, CDT, recently had a chance to speak with several individuals about their different uses of AR in construction, how they apply it today, and what it will mean tomorrow. Read about these conversations in his latest blog[2] on the CSI website.
