Pulling back the curtain on VDC

In moving a project from statement of work to completion of construction, regular collaboration between owners, designers, and contractors is no longer a luxury. It is the managerial insurance the project must have in order to stay on schedule and budget. Much of the unbudgeted time and expense incurred by change orders can be attributed to a lack of integration between the players. It’s often because these parties failed to include the resources and intentional effort for collaboration.

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is one of the most effective means for achieving this integration. Using its framework, teams can collectively and collaboratively manage design-construction projects. VDC also provides an ongoing, updated, and holistic view of the project, ensuring that the input of all stakeholders is gathered and assessed early in the design phase. While this generally requires a higher investment upfront, over the life of your project, it has the potential to save you time, trouble, and money. For one client,  awarding a design contract that required a higher upfront investment resulted in a 29% savings over the life of a $200 million project. The following examples show why VDC has become a power tool for driving overall project performance not only in regard to cost, but also schedule, quality, and safety. Continue reading →
