Mortenson Construction Creates Augmented Reality App

Mortenson Construction has developed an augmented reality (AR) mobile app to provide a digital representation of the new Computer Science and Engineering building (CSE2) under construction at the University of Washington in Seattle. By pointing a smartphone at the construction site, or at a printout of the site, users can experience an immersive virtual view of the main lobby, workroom, robotics lab, and offices. A preliminary version of the Mortenson AR/VR app is now available for download on iPhone and Android devices. Designed by LMN Architects, the $105 million, 135,000-sf CSE2 will include a 250-person lecture hall, classrooms, labs, seminar rooms, and conference facilities. Occupancy is expected in January of 2019.
