Skanska’s virtual journey – NXT BLD London, June 2017
Paul explains how Skanska is utilising the latest VR and AR technologies to influence behaviours on site and to assist its next generation of engineers in visualising their designs and for interaction and learning. By using VR for learning, for example, Skanska has found construction workers are able to retain site training info for longer as VR uses a different part of brain. Paul also shares how Skanska is testing the latest Mixed Reality tech and where it can be applied.
