An Overview of Virtual Design and Construction Technology

Brian Vanderburgh is vice president of hospitality and preconstruction of West Palm Beach, Florida-based Hedrick Brothers Construction, a design-build and general contracting firm. Skilled in leading all phases of construction thanks to completing multiple projects in Las Vegas, Brian Vanderburgh introduces clients of Hedrick Brothers Construction to Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), a novel technological tool that saves time, expense, and problems throughout the entire building process.

VDC brings a unique perspective to each client’s building project by providing a simulated virtual model of the completed structure prior to its construction in reality. The virtual schemes and information models provided by VDC assist owners in making critical decisions regarding their project’s final design early in the building process, rather than after the project has been completed.

The goal of VDC is to identify, analyze, and avert potential problems that may occur during the building process, through the use of virtual modeling and analysis that simulates each element of a project’s design and construction. VDC also promotes information exchange and communication among all stakeholders and project team members throughout each part of the project, helping increase the efficiency of project delivery and potentially reducing costs.
