Most industries experienced epic disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing mandates and the need to meet critical health protocols forced construction companies, organizations and their workers to adapt (or die).

While safe distancing may require fewer people on the physical site, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies will open the jobsite up, allowing more people to be on the project virtually—without being subject to travel or unsafe interaction. This can be done today with a combination of the HoloLens 2 and VisualLive along with connectivity supplied by Microsoft Office 365 and Teams meetings.
