MESA — A Valley construction project is using virtual reality goggles as a way to show off its vision to the community.

Eastmark High School is one of their first “digital” construction projects, and school officials tell us the new technology not only helps save paper, but also has a huge potential for saving tens of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money.

The high school, which is part of Queen Creek Unified School District, is located in the brand new Eastmark community sprouting up in Mesa, near the border of Queen Creek.

Right now, all you see is a big dirt lot, construction cranes, hard hats, and the skeletal frame of a building. But use your smartphone and put on the virtual reality goggles, and you’ll see the whole project come to life in 3-D.

Woodward said they have given tours to school district officials, parents, teachers, and students.
