Virtual Design & Construction
It’s an exciting time to be a design-build team member. Not only is our industry creating innovative and creative ways to collaborate on highly successful projects, but we’re also using Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) tools to take that team collaboration to new heights.
As the only membership association in the nation representing the entire spectrum of design and construction professionals, DBIA is on the front lines of industry transformation through collaboration. That’s why DBIA is expanding our focus on technology and innovation, providing strategies for design-build teams working to maximize their collaboration. Each day, we see design-build teams embrace innovation and technology to create effective, efficient, and transparent processes that allow every project team member to work together as one.
We know Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) will drive that continued success. DBIA is here to help lead that transformation with targeted education, training and resources.

The Virtual Design & Construction Leadership Exchange (VDCLEx) was co-located with this year’s Design-Build Conference & Expo. This half-day pre-conference event explored how VDC is impacting designers, builders and Owners by enhancing design excellence, increasing quality and productivity, and improving lifecycle costs. The event included a general session, Leaders Forum and two specialized tracks: one for experienced VDC professionals and those new to VDC. No matter what your level of VDC experience, the VDCLEx offers opportunities to better understand how design and construction technology and emerging processes are integral to driving greater efficiencies on design-build projects.

DBIA remains on the front lines of industry transformation through collaboration with the release of our latest Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) Primer and Position Statement. These new foundational documents are key additions to the existing suite of Design-Build Done Right® resources offered by DBIA to help educate and elevate our membership and industry on the importance of VDC Done Right. While providing an overview of both documents, we’ll also take a deeper dive into some of the highlights of the primer, including: • Key Terminology Definitions • How the Effective Use of VDC can Improve the Industry • The Value of VDC to Owners, Designers and Contractors • Why Design-Build Is Optimal for the Integration of VDC

The use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D drawings have become a de facto standard for the design of water and wastewater treatment facilities. These BIM models have proven to be very effective in communicating ideas early in the design process to optimize a facility’s performance and achieve consensus with an owner. However, there are few examples and limited standards for design-build projects, particularly for progressive design-build, on how contractors should best apply BIM during construction, and establish requirements for final BIM delivery to owners, that will provide efficiencies and cost savings for ongoing operations and maintenance. This webinar will discuss the practical applications for BIM through the design-build process, and considerations for contract documents, owner’s requirements, and final submittals that will support long term facility maintenance and asset management systems. The promise of BIM is for information developed during design to aid in building assembly modeling, or BAM, through the construction phase to enable efficient scheduling, contractor coordination, and cost control. Ultimately, if design-build is done right, the owner can leverage BIM and BAM for building operations optimization modeling, or BOOM, to support enterprise asset management that minimizes energy consumption, optimizes maintenance, and guides overall facility operations.

CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024 Although BIM and Lean complement each other, teams still find themselves fighting traditional contractual battles when you merely mix them together. Welcome to the new AEC superpower: ISO 19650, a global information management standard for BIM. ISO 19650 sets out the workflow for managing information throughout the lifecycle of a project and, more importantly, how it should be incorporated into contracts. We see strong evidence that combining BIM, Lean, and ISO 19650 makes more efficient outcomes possible for all stakeholders. So, if you want to be on the cutting-edge of BIM adoption, hear me discuss practical methods for implementing ISO 19650 as part of a Lean BIM workflow!

CONTENT EXPIRES: December 31, 2024 Beginning with the owner's goals and objectives in mind, the virtual design & construction (VDC) planning effort elevates everyone's thinking to a more integrated, strategic level of how to embrace BIM-enabled technologies and workflows to drive value throughout the project lifecycle. Now more than ever, VDC is becoming an integral component of early project planning to help define stakeholder goals and streamlining the design-build delivery process. This panel conversation collects the various stakeholder perspectives on how the BJC Campus Renewal Design-Build Project Team has leveraged a VDC-focused framework to help foster the project's integrated design work planning and alignment of design deliverables to construction needs downstream, along with a deeper conversation of success stories and tales of collaboration about VDCÂs impact in the PLAN, DESIGN, CONSTRUCT and OPERATE phases of the project delivery lifecycle.
