The environmental benefits
Most companies today follow the positive trend of having green milestones set, with aims to cut down on carbon emissions.
Cutting down on construction mistakes and delays is a great carbon footprint reducer on its own.
While face to face in vr, you can make a strong argument for how close it feels to real meetings, thus reducing the need for travel.
In some cases we come close to physical meetings, in most areas we equal them and in some we even surpass the benefits of being physically present.
Just think about that. As great as hangouts, skype or zoom is - it would very rarely happen that two people in the same physical room whip out a form of video conferencing to enhance their conversation.
Yet, this is exactly what is often done with Dimension10.
It just adds that extra dimension to the conversation, by being able to interact with the model together in a way not possible on any other technological platforms.
And this point can only hit home when presented in VR.
Below an excerpt from a research paper Rune made during is time at AF anlegg, in collaboration with the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE) at Stanford University. He analysed eight VR design review meetings involving 16 stakeholders during that time and tracked metrics from users via a survey after each meeting in line with the Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) framework developed by CIFE, reporting results and iterating plans monthly.
