VDC / BIM
Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) refer to highly-integrated project delivery processes, as well as a collection of technologies. These are disruptive processes that change business relationships, introduce new risks and rewards, and empower participants with advanced tools that streamline decisions and reduce project delivery time and costs. VDC/BIM technical solutions enable this advanced approach to delivering design and construction services.
VDC/BIM technical solutions come in many shapes and sizes because there are different tools for different objectives. The integrated delivery process is complex and cannot be fully supported by a single software application. The most important question to consider is, "What are we trying to accomplish through VDC/BIM?"
Eos Group provides strategic guidance, software products, cost database integration, and implementation services to ensure our clients approach VDC/BIM using a balanced, manageable process.
