DV21960 - Viewing a Space Before It's a Space—Virtual Reality for Design Verification

Class speakers
Session description

Virtual reality (VR) isn't always for architects to show off their pretty designs! Viewing mechanical and electrical rooms before they’re constructed, and before equipment is purchased, is important from a constructability standpoint. Just because something fits in a space, doesn't mean the design works. Having a contractor, operations manager, or client walk-through and experience the space well before construction can help clarify the design intent. They can give insight on design “flaws” and layout preferences, which will help the designer to produce an efficient and clean design. This class will showcase case studies in which a design team at MCW Consultants Ltd. used VR to enhance and validate their design intent in a number of mechanical spaces. This session features Revit MEP. AIA Approved
