The reality of design validation, 3D coordination, and building of the built environment is in a state of disconnection. We live in a constant 1:1 human scale in real reality and yet design and coordinate in scaled 2D drawings and 3D BIM models. How does the aging AEC industry bridge the tribal knowledge gap with processes of construction that take years to learn?
Virtual and augmented reality are new technologies that are advancing at an incredible pace and have promise to improve workflow. In today’s construction economy there is higher demand for construction workforce but a supply of less skilled labor which cannot fulfill the demand. Virtual and augmented reality can bridge the tribal knowledge gap allowing experienced generations to easily transfer knowledge to younger generations, thus ramping up the skills of the workforce via technology. The reality is construction needs a disruption.
Cody Nowak, Founder, DisruptAEC: Cody has experience in the AEC industry coordinating projects with architects, MEP engineers, general contractors, and a variety of subcontractors. As a technology evangelist, Mr. Nowak is bridging the gap between technology, BIM, and AEC with the purpose of integrating virtual reality and augmented reality into a prominent role. He is working on progressing the AEC industry towards the integration of real-time 3D engines to be used for powering real-time collaboration and ultimately the use of real-time BIM in the field via emerging hardware technologies.
