A series of virtual design contractors were interviewed regarding the future involvement of augmented and virtual reality software integration with construction processes. Within the construction industry, VDC specialists rely on Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create digital models that can be used to analyze the design of a building from all points of view. The interviewees responded to questions about software implementation advantages, and related user experiences. Six interviews were conducted, amongst three industry leading companies. Their assumptions of future AR and VR usage in construction were based on learned knowledge and prior field exploration. Interviewees determined that construction companies can gain more security in their day-to-day tasks through rigorous software implementation. Software adoption within a company carries minor costs, while paying off tenfold in years to come. More precision and efficiency will translate to increased cost savings. An interviewee mentioned, “VR visualization allows us to gain a comprehensive view of how the project will appear when complete, and how to handle it successfully”.
