The construction industry has been lagging in adopting technology applications but has begun to integrate them in the past few years. Augmented reality (AR) is an innovative technology that allowed for the visualization of virtual objects in the real world. Presently, it can be used for various activities and tasks in construction but does not yet have the accuracy to be relied on. This case study interviewed industry personnel to determine if AR should be implemented into practice based on their experiences in the field. Based on the responses, the majority believed that it was a potential technological tool that had a high ceiling but was not at the level yet where it must be widely incorporated. However, they reported that there were many beneficial uses to AR, such as quality control/assurance, clash detection, visualization of the building, and double-checking work being performed. Many interviewees stated that technology is a revolutionary tool that has simplified and increased efficiency in construction. Ignoring technological advances will only hinder the growth of the company. Competition is constantly happening in the industry, so being ahead of competitors by adopting innovative technology is an advantage that must not be overlooked.
