In this chapter, the potential application areas for AR to support construction phase activities are explored. As a medium for accessing information to support site operations and tasks, AR can benefit three primary categories of activities that occur routinely in the construction phase: (1) building and inspecting, (2) coordination, and (3) interpretation and communication. This chapter also discusses AR system technical issues regarding displays, tracking, and calibration for characteristics of construction tasks and the construction site. These technologies should be developed with critical consideration for the characteristics of construction sites if successful adoption of AR is to occur.
