AR in construction theme analysis

akhilesh21 Sep 2022 Business

The adoption of AR in construction is still in its infancy. However, AR use cases are rapidly being realized, and increasing implementation of precursor technologies such as building information modeling (BIM) and cloud infrastructure is enabling adoption. AR can allow multiple stakeholders to be consulted using in-situ augmented walkthroughs and can increase the accuracy of projects.

BIM provides for the gathering of information relating to design, functionality and life span in forms that can be shared by the participants in the project. In this way, designers, contractors and suppliers can have a current view of the progress of the building project and have an influence on the design and specification prior to, and during, execution. 3D representation is a key element of BIM, however, this can be widened to 4D – which includes time frames, and 5D – which additionally comprises cost management.

A number of governments have been taking steps to drive the adoption of BIM. The UK government, for example, stipulated in the Government Construction Strategy 2011 that BIM Level 2 should be used on all public procurement projects from April 2016. The adoption of BIM is seen as a means to achieve a 20% reduction in the construction and operating costs of new buildings. BIM Level 2 requires each member of the design team to develop building information in a collaborative 3D environment that may also include data relating to costs or modelling, but created in separate discipline models. Information should be transferable to all of the project’s participants.

BIM Level 3 aims for full collaboration between all disciplines AR in construction by means of using a single, shared project model held in a centralised repository. All parties will be able to access and modify that same model with the benefit being that it removes the final layer of conflicting information. BIM has been implemented worldwide with the more advanced economies of the US, Japan, South Korea, Germany, France, Brazil, Canada, Australia and New Zealand recording significant take-up.

In the second quarter of 2019 GlobalData surveyed over 100 organisations involved in construction projects, including contractors, surveyors, civil engineers and architects, to obtain an understanding of the state of BIM uptake in the global market and its perceived effect on return on investment (ROI), as well as the barriers and future plans with respect to BIM usage.
