Construction planning is a complicated process that involves optimal use of resources in a changing site environment. The Construction Virtual Prototyping (CVP) technology helps simulate design, planning and implementation in a virtual reality environment and in an integrated manner.  CVP takes into account all the variables in the project life cycle.  Users can evaluate construction processes with a view to minimize resource idling and wastage. 

Operationally, CVP identifies potential planning conflicts, generates detailed implementation plans, and verifies safety compliance.  It is an advanced computer-aided tool for reviewing designs, process flows, resource planning, space requirement to remove conflicts and potential re-works that are costly in real life.
