We’re delighted to announce that Professor Jennifer Whyte will be joining our conference panel on AR and VR in Real Estate and Construction. Professor Whyte  is Laing O’Rourke / Royal Academy of Engineering Professor of System Integration in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College London, and Director of the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation. She wrote the book “Virtual Reality in the Built Environment” (Architectural Press/Elsevier) and is currently working on the second edition with a co-author, Dr Dragana Nikolic. Before moving to Imperial, Jennifer’s team developed a 3D Mobile Visualization Environment (3D-MOVE). This has been used in design reviews on the Crossrail project, through their ‘Innovate 18’ programme. This involved studying engineers and managers use of multi-user collaborative VR on this large infrastructure project.
