The Future of Corporate Real Estate in a World Where Virtual Meets Physical

03.18.2021 // As technology plays a bigger role in everything in our lives, we look for ways to incorporate it into our work environment to add efficiency and productivity where possible. Augmented Reality (AR) has long been a hot topic but it can often feel out of reach. The good news is that nowadays AR can easily be deployed to expedite project delivery and avoid costly design misalignment by projecting the proposed design on top of the existing conditions, which allows us to communicate and collaborate better with management and users. Watch the discussion with end-users that have recently leveraged AR in their real-life projects to build consensus, speed up delivery and avoid future costly change orders.
