From spinning holograms and robot dogs capable of scanning buildings to mixed reality and generative design, no matter which part of the industry you are apart of, there was plenty to learn about and see this year at AU 2019! With all of the software and technology emerging in the AEC industry, more tedious and time consuming workflows can be automated, data can be more efficiently stored and used, and we are nothing but excited about all of the potential.

Between the Keynotes, classes, exhibitors, and thousands of attendees, this event was not was not to be missed and we can’t wait for next year!

Looking forward to attending the CIFE Summer Program and representing one of Silicon Valley's tech giants in VR for Construction.


At first, this immersion inside the building interior appears too real to be true. The teleportation function of the HTC Vive controllers make the experience of hopping from point a to point b pleasant even for the worst vertigo sufferers. After just a few minutes, moving about the model becomes second nature and the real work begins. Clients report getting a better feel for scale, volume and flow through the space. The working environment and the difficultly to find your way in a building is often not captured in a plan view. Having the ability to walk through the space allows for more scrutiny about vertical surfaces that may block benchmarks and other visual navigation aids. Until now, owners were provided isometric renders which most often depicted the most pretty angles of the space. This technology appears to be much more than the latest toy and is going to revolutionize the design review process for owners.
