Preconstruction planning is one of the most challenging aspects of a building project’s life cycle. Design professionals often rely on yesterday’s data to plan tomorrow’s projects. However, historical data has proven to be unreliable as it does not include factors for present markets or track trends impacting costs. Thanks to modern data science and predictive analytics, those involved in the construction planning phases are now able to supplement historical data with reliable projections of future expenses.
In construction, augmented reality (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.
Three teams won the complete virtual construction contest, the latest stage of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA’s) 3D-printed Habitat Challenge. They awarded a share of the $100,000 prize purse.
