ConTech Series: Virtual Reality – How is VR Increasing Efficiency and Profit Margins in the Construction Industry?

Wednesday, 14th October 2020 0945hrs – 1130hrs

Virtual Reality (VR) is one new technology that is changing the construction industry by solving old problems. In this webinar we will be exploring the benefits of VR in construction including how it can be used to increase efficiency and increase the speed of scaling up, streamlining collaboration, and improving the client experience as clients can walk into a VR model and see for themselves what their project will look like when it’s complete – empowering clients to make smart decisions, and improving the contractor’s ability to set and meet expectations

This webinar is part of a new series on the future of the construction industry which are taking place over the coming months, and will explore the next big trends, innovations and challenges the industry needs to prepare for.

We will gather major industry influencers and free thinkers to discuss the challenges and opportunities that will be present across the built environment in the years to come.
