The Benefits of Virtual Reality
Virtual reality (VR) technology is experiencing a resurgence after its initial experiments in the 80’s and 90’s. Since recapturing the public’s attention on a large scale in 2014 when Facebook purchased Oculus VR, virtual reality has evolved into a powerful tool with widespread applications and benefits.
Whether it is during the project pursuit, design development, MEP coordination/installation, safety and site logistics planning, or during the facilities maintenance stage, VR is proving it is far more than a fleeting new technology. DPR recognizes VR as a strategic tool that project teams across the country are increasingly leveraging to:
- Increase stakeholder engagement
- Increase communication
- Resolve project challenges
- Improve project predictability and outcomes.
