This research seeks to assess whether Virtual Reality (VR) can be used to convey Building Information Modelling (BIM) metadata alongside geometric and spatial data in a virtual environment and by doing so, determine if it increases the effectiveness of the design review by improving participants understanding of the design. Previous research has illustrated the potential for VR to enhance design reviews, especially the ability to convey spatial information but so far there has been limited research into how VR can convey additional BIM metadata. A user study assessed participants performance and preference for conducting design reviews in VR or using a traditional design review system of PDF drawings and a 3D model. The VR condition had a higher task completion rate, a higher SUS score and generally faster completion times.
