Description

What the heck is virtual design and construction?
How BIM helps us (and can probably help you)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) have been buzzwords in the AEC industry for years, yet, the Canadian industry as a whole has been slow to adopt these processes. For Turner Construction Company, our use of VDC is driven by the specific needs of each individual project, and our use of BIM makes us better builders.

This presentation will outline the various processes and technologies we use to build digitally before building in reality, mitigating real world issues such as coordination complexities, rework and unforeseen circumstances that arise during the course of construction. From small tenant improvement projects through to complex multi-phased core and shell construction, this presentation will outline the tools we use to succeed.

Presenter: Kate Kirwan, CM-BIM
VDC Manager at Turner Construction Company
