Often, large construction projects meet with scepticism from the population or certain interest groups. Airport companies, for example, go to great lengths to explain the construction of new terminals using computer animations and extensive models.
The acceptance of such construction projects stands and falls with the quality of the presentation. If future users and residents can experience projects with their own eyes on site before construction begins, this helps to form a well-founded opinion. For the initiators of the projects, on the other hand, there are completely new opportunities to communicate their concerns. Changes can be implemented at short notice and different scenarios can be depicted. Flexibility in presentation is another advantage of using HoloLens and AR apps for 3D representations.
By the way, this does not only apply to new buildings. If existing buildings are to be renovated or listed buildings upgraded, the end result is often only very abstractly defined. Concept drawings or computer animations do not change this. Does the new façade really match the character of the old building? What is the visual impact of neon signs or the installation of a solar system? What could the house look like after a conversion? All these questions can be answered during a walk-through before the actual construction project begins using HoloLens and augmented reality. In real time and with the option of incorporating changes at any time.
