The paper presents an investigating on how a visualised Virtual Reality (VR) model is experienced and assessed by the workforce at a building site. It also provides insight of the basic information flow requirements. The questionnaire involved a total of 93 participants, all of whom were involved in the building project. The VR model in question was realistic, as the majority of the participants were positive about using it in their profession. The participants also felt that the information flow at the building site was insufficient today and that a VR model can have a beneficial effect on information transfer and co-operation. Further studies using VR modeling in construction is necessary to provide knowledge for practical implementation.
