Using gaming technology in construction and beyond

Skanska is putting immersive technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) to work starting as early as conceptual design and into construction and operations. These tools place an end-user into a first-person, immersive experience that contextualizes the built environment and enables a personal connection to a space. This can help remove unknowns around design options, clarify assumptions to conceptual estimates, accelerate decision-making and promote stakeholder buy-in. There are multiple levels of sophistication for virtual reality and augmented reality, each with their own benefits and challenges, ranging from 360-degree virtual worlds viewable through a desktop or headset to an interactive environment that responds to the user directly.

Benefits of immersive technology

  • Enhance the client experience through a personal connection to the space
  • Gain new perspectives through immersive, 360-degree views and interactive environments
  • Accelerate decision making and buy-in
