Construction is one of the spheres that regularly lacks skilled staff

Construction is one of the spheres that regularly lacks skilled staff. While the demand for new buildings, architecture solutions is growing around the world, the number of young professional workers is decreasing.

In order for the commercial companies to hire and onboard new employees fast and effectively, new technologies become a necessity. Virtual reality for hard skills training is here to change the game.

LET’S FIGURE WHAT VR CAN REALLY OFFER THE CONSTRUCTION SPHERE

Solution of any problems for training at construction sites:

safety training at a construction site
training of the brigade and engineers
training of the necessary skills at construction sites
training of construction equipment management
 

Accurately re-created environments in 3D help VR give newcomers an opportunity to feel themselves as if they were in a real location.

The ability to monitor the construction process gives more control over the work, which leads to more productive work.

Design review and pre-construction planning give the opportunity to adjust and improve the implementation of the object before it is built, and customers will be happy to see the exact result in advance.

VIRTUAL REALITY IN CONSTRUCTION: BENEFITS FOR THE INDUSTRY

More and more companies are using VR to train employees as these simulators have become a popular replacement for hands-on training.

Here’s a few reasons why:

Fast learning

Virtual reality construction training is an opportunity to teach your newcomers and employees more effectively. Nothing and noone distracts the learner and the interactive approach allows to remember new materials better and faster.

Precise creation of 3D-models, the ability to see the final result in advance

Architecture visualization allows your customers to see their future home or office in advance. It is a great opportunity to up-sale any solution.

Integration with external systems for precise planning

Having the ability to integrate the necessary data, VR application becomes an all-in-one solution that allows not only to see the virtually reconstructed future building but to also calculate the amount of material needed for the future construction.

Security

Being fully immersed, the worker can go through dangerous situations in a safe environment as many times as needed.

Less costs

Discussion of the project not with drawings and images on the monitor, but with a prototype on a one-to-one scale allows to prevent multiple alterations.

Work is much more productive and time-efficient

A virtually reproduced environment allows different teams around the world to collaborate without the necessity to travel physically.

Finally, using this technology, it is much easier and faster to identify possible difficulties and pain points either for the educational purposes or clients’ needs.

 

What Are Sensorama’s Approaches to Using VR for Construction?

We look beyond the boundaries of our perception

While working with the client’s stakeholders, we also involve additional experts in the field in order to have the broader perspective on the topic.

We visualize, develop, simulate scenarios, implement, accompany and support clients at all stages.

Full-cycle process allows us to speed up development accordingly and optimize the final cost. For example, we can use the previously developed modules, like the instructor’s dashboard, but a completely individual solution always possible.

We select suitable devices for customers’ needs.

We work with the latest hardware and always consult the client on what would be the best fit for their needs. At the same time, we also develop VR applications for professional equipment like the Varjo xr-3 and Varjo vr-3 devices, which have the largest expansion on the market due to headset’s characteristics. They provide the best resolution and photorealistic image. Additionally, HP Reverb G2 can be a more affordable solution but it requires a workstation with a good graphics card. Oculus Quest 1/2 virtual reality helmets are completely autonomous but require graphics optimization for a mobile device.

Sensorama customers can also ask for cross-platform solutions.

This means that any application can be developed not only for VR devices but also for a smartphone or tablet or desktop PC with a mouse and keyboard, or even web. If initially agreed, we design the system taking into account the adaptation to the required platforms.

We offer development of the backend-server side.

API integration of external systems and development of a web interface for editing, managing, or displaying analytics or other results and data are also possible.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO DEVELOP A VR SOLUTION FOR CONSTRUCTION?

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO DEVELOP A VR SOLUTION FOR CONSTRUCTION?
  • Project scope
  • Level of detailing
  • Initial materials and data needed for project implementation
  • Complexity of scenarios
  • Development of training modules
  • Additional modules and integrations
  • Number of simultaneous users
  • Amount of 3D-models
The use of VR in the construction industry expands the possibilities simply to limitlessness.
