In construction and development VR proves especially effective by allowing the clients to explore and get a much more tangible idea of the look and feel of the property before buying it.
Could you reckon that extraordinary depictions from the Avatar movie where the small version of the city was projected right in front of you as if you are looking at the compressed version of it in the real time? Back in those years we thought of it as something out of the world. Without realizing even before that time we have already laid the foundation of a new technology in the same manner as you lay the foundation for a building.
That is all about the Virtual Reality letting us immerse in a completely new world and experience new surroundings.
Setting the right client expectations is the key to every business as it is the only way to make your clients happy! At the same time, making any major changes once a building is under construction is extremely expensive and time-consuming.
At devabit we created a complex solution to address those problems! We built a virtual reality application alloing the potential apartment buyers to get an exact idea how their future place of living will look like and introduce any changes even before a single brick is laid.
The construction of a building can be simulated in virtual reality as it would in its normal environment. The experience of being inside your future home, moving around, and changing materials, fixtures, and furniture, is exceptional.
In addition, in the next versions of the application will be a community hub where all the dwellers can communicate with each other, pay household bills or call for external services – be it a plumber or whoever you need to tackle a problem. The application will also be integrated with electricity, gas and water meters making the housekeeping just a breeze.
One important factor that needed to be thoroughly tested is the viability of an architectural design, which posed a challenge for our devabit team. With small increments we managed to present the seamless navigation allowing you to walk through a virtual copy of the building, traverse hallways and open doors and windows. In virtual environments clients can instantly experience the design elements such as lighting, fixtures, flooring materials as well as incorporate furnishings to get a real sense of how the finished space will look.
One more thing was to test a number of factors referring to the building itself which will add up to the resulting building. At the expense of the time and cost that would be spent on building the structure, we reduced the number of errors present in the completed building, got the positive client interactions and increased client satisfaction.
As a result end-clients got better understanding of the space and what a project will look like when completed. Because while quantity goes a long way, quality makes more sense in the long run.
First and foremost is that the creation of a VR-based visual interface allows the clients to validate and evaluate what they will be purchasing. VR technology will guide the potential buyers along the way and will pose itself as the manual to their future home.
A community hub is an integral part of any smart house but also one of the key differentiator and value for the end client.
Virtual reality is undoubtedly the fastest-growing tech trend of today. As a consequence with its help the simulation of a building allowed an organisation to fine-tune construction processes for maximum efficiency and a minimum amount of change.
Virtual Reality will speed up the decision-making process thanks to improved communication and instant feedback from all parties involved: owners, architects, engineers, end-clients, and contractors.
