This site presents few applications of Virtual Reality Technology for Building Construction Delivery. Originally this was the web site of a national RTD project (VIRIL) but after that we've developed and tested virtual reality applications in several other projects. The following four areas are covered @this site:

Modelling and simulation of construction processes using VR technology - 4D

Virtual Reality models of buildings

3D Presentation Technology


Main objective is to gain understanding of possibilities and cost/benefit ratios of VR technology for industrial applications. The mission is to provide knowledge for the development of practical applications of virtual reality technology for live construction projects.

A new national project is under development concentrating on the available PC based vr applications. These applications will be tested together with industrial partners. Also various vr-studio options are analysed (cave, concave, portable vr-studios,..).
