About the workshop:
Over the last several years, sustainable construction has become more popular because it boosts productivity while reducing costs and waste. With the help of Augmented Reality (AR) technology, construction workers are able to remove the need for printed materials, making it more economical and efficient by eliminating the cost of paper.
At the same time, workers can get all the necessary data, such as blueprints, manuals, etc., without looking at computer monitors or mobile devices, thus reducing human error and unnecessary accidents that occur when workers constantly look at the screen.
What you will learn:
In this hands-on session, we’ll explore how Mixed Reality headsets can help improve sustainability in the construction industry by enhancing productivity, reducing downtime, improving safety and enhancing sustainability.
We’ll also look deeply at how Mixed Reality headsets can help reduce waste by enabling you to perform 3D measurements virtually, eliminating the need for physical measuring tools. We’ll even see how HoloLens 2 can be used to overlay 3D scanned objects over top of real-world objects!
Who is the course for?
Anybody who’s interested in learning about Hololens 2 technology, by Microsoft,
This technology has created all kinds of new possibilities and we will explore how this technology can be used to improve existing processes in the construction industry.

The world is now a very different place—and so are the ways we can use different technologies for greener and safer construction work. We started the series of workshops in July this year, showcasing Drone Technology and Unmanned Ariel Vehicles (UAV).
Now, it’s time to learn about the benefits of using Hololens 2, the most advanced mixed reality head-mounted glasses optimised for hands-free work, powered by the Windows Mixed Reality platform.
Outcomes you can expect:
Mixed Reality is a representative of an exciting new era in architecture and construction by providing tangible visualisations of projects that can be interacted with, turning the digital into the real.
As digital natives, current generations are highly familiarised with interacting with technology. They have been brought up on computers, tablets, and smartphones—so it makes sense that the next generation of builders and architects will be those who grew up using AR and Virtual Reality (VR) devices.
That’s why now is the time to enhance the ways we visualise our built environment. We are at an exciting point in history where we can imagine anything, build anything, and visualise anything—we literally have the power to shape our world and our future as we wish—and mixed reality devices like HoloLens are helping to make this potential a reality.
Hololens 2, by Microsoft, is a technology that can precisely overlay digital images onto the real world around us. This technology has created all kinds of new possibilities and we will explore how this technology can be used to improve existing processes in the construction industry.
