Use of XR to address coordination challenges in construction projects

Building design is a complex and iterative process that requires collaboration between designers from numerous disciplines. Quality of design has a direct impact on the project success and poor-quality designs are the leading cause of project delays, reworks, and cost overruns. This research aims to improve the quality of design by focussing on two themes: addressing the design coordination issues faced and getting design inputs related to constructability and maintainability from relevant end-users. For this aim, the use of modern technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) which are together denoted as Extended Reality (XR), with their potentials for providing stronger spatial understanding, will be explored. The research investigates the impact of using VR and AR tools to improve the design quality and measures its potential benefits. TO BE CONT’D
