"Full-Scale Virtual Reality: The Future of Contract Bidding"
presented by Macrae Cain,CEO, The Digital Media House
The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.
In this session you will learn how the emerging technology of immersive, interactive, full-scale virtual reality will affect the architectural design, estimating and construction in the future. It is the next step in better communication with the client during the design process, efficient sub-consultant coordination, and problem-solving during the QA/QC process.
Contractors will learn how a full scale walk-through virtual reality model will help them develop better, quantity take-offs, cost estimates and effective coordination between subcontractors. A VR model turns the process of reading 2-D plans on-site to seeing the finished product in all its phases in a real-time full scale. Full-scale VR walkthroughs cross all language barriers and will revolutionize communication between clients, architects, engineers, contractors and code inspectors.
