At Nabholz, Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) means using the latest technologies—like computer modeling, virtual reality, and cloud computing—to create and manage information about your project. We’re constantly researching and implementing new tools and techniques to increase quality, accuracy, and safety.
Our VDC team is committed to improving the entire construction experience for both our clients and our teams in the field. They do this by focusing—for the most part—on these two critical pieces of the puzzle:
Earlier and Better Decision Making
Computer modeling and associated VDC techniques like spatial coordination, digital layout, existing conditions modeling, and construction system modeling allow for earlier analysis of the project to find and fix issues that would negatively impact the project.
How does this help you? Decades of experience have proven that when it comes to making changes to a project, earlier is better. Not only can we offer more options, but we can also better manage the cost of the change when it takes place earlier on in the project schedule. Our VDC team can find and prevent potential problems before they become real headaches on your jobsite.
Increased Information Flow
The combination of digital and mobile technologies enables everyone on the project—from owners to trade contractors—to access more and better information. Having the right information at the right time makes it easier to make the right decision.
Here are just some of the tools our VDC specialists use:
