Abstract

Only limited research has been conducted with respect to the use of Virtual Reality for planning of Facilities Management. Through a case study experiment, using only the early stage architectural 3D model of a test building. A Virtual Environment was then generated allowing test persons evaluation the usability of Virtual Reality as a Facilities Management planning tool.

Facilities Management, Building Information Model, Modelling and Management and Virtual Reality are individually widely researched. However, this paper contributes to great amount of scientific literature with respect to Facilities Management, by studying the topics in unison.

The evaluation of Virtual Reality for Facilities Management planning was divided into a qualitative phase involving interviewing of the test persons, and a quantitative phase allowing test persons to rate their experience in Virtual Reality in a questionnaire.

The study revealed that 82 per cent of the test persons found Virtual Reality usable as a planning tool for Facilities Management. The experiment however also showed a wide range of the degree to which the test persons found the tool usable.
