You learn to ride a bicycle by starting with a tricycle. Eventually the
training wheels come off, and you can go many different places with many different types of
bikes. The same can be said with the implementation of VDC in design-build delivery methods.
You learn how to use VDC effectively and efficiently, and you never look back. You can scale VDC
to your project across any industry. This session will focus on establishing strategies for using
VDC during design and preconstruction through a series of case studies. We will talk about risk
mitigation through early (and often) collaboration, centered around technology, and how this
increases project performance. For those of us who haven’t learned how to ride a bike, you
might be a little late to the party, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn. And lucky for you, you
might not have to start with a tricycle.
a. Be inspired, not intimidated, to use VDC on a project of any size across any industry to
increase the overall project performance.
b. Define the roles and responsibilities of project stakeholders as it relates to their
integration with a virtual build during preconstruction.
c. Outline the value of early model-based collaboration to help all parties capitalize on the
factors you can control to mitigate the overall project risk.
d. Outline the value of cost and schedule transparencies via the BIM model to create full
transparency and trust with the owner’s prescriptions.
