BEYOND CONSTRUCTION

We use the latest technology to solve potential issues early on, and eliminate extra costs and downtime.

EFFICIENT

Better builds.

Our teams can implement innovative processes that offer a more accurate exchange of information, improve coordination, and increase productivity on projects. This results in thorough and efficient builds.

Our VDC Team

Our virtual design and construction (VDC) team creates information models of the built environment. This provides stakeholders with a clear visual of how a project will develop sequentially. Being able to prototype at an early stage avoids wasteful and costly rework.

What is BIM?

Building information modelling (BIM) is a platform that builds an object with associated information. VDC uses BIM models to plan the construction process from beginning to end. No matter the size of a project, BIM helps us deliver durable buildings more quickly with savings passed on to customers.

AI and Safety

Artificial intelligence uses computer vision to recognize objects and analyze their movements. It automates many mundane but essential tasks. And, it helps increase safety and security on site by allowing us to easily monitoring items such as PPE compliance and whether social distancing measures are in place.

Digital Pre-Fabrication

This innovative tool uses digitized information to facilitate manufacturing of materials or assemblies - such as, sheet metal fabrication, structural steel fabrication, pipe cutting, and prototyping. The process saves time; reduces waste; increases productivity and safety; and accommodates design changes. 

GO GREEN

Caring For Our Planet

By using innovative technology, we've been able to achieve significant reductions in the amount of carbon being emitted on jobsites. And work towards a net-zero future. Read More. 

OUR WORK

The Power of Innovation

Having instant access to project progress and collaborating on virtual models to test ideas assures teams stay on track and choose the best solution possible. 

Calgary Climbing Centre | 24,500 sq. ft. | $7,500,000

BIM helped us discover HVAC interferences with the structural and architectural components. For example, the model revealed some ductwork running into a climbing wall - a problem best addressed before the incident was discovered in the field. Clash detection also resolved several conflicts, saving significant dollars and calendar days in rework. Read More. 

SFU Stadium Upgrades | 31,645 sq. ft. | $16,900,000

Using BIM during the testing stage, helped us discover mechanical, electrical and plumbing system interferences. The model revealed that the shaft opening was not big enough to accommodate all HVAC and fire protection systems. Bringing the issues to attention early in the design stage, provided the team with ample time to come up with effective solutions. Read More. 

Barrie-Simcoe Emergency Services | 190,000 sq. ft. | $86,500,000

We used 4D/5D modeling to produce high-quality as-builts through the use of laser scanning and a digital maintenance manual to assist the client with future operations of the building. The team also used BIM-enabled platforms, providing up-to-date information, giving immediate insight to issues as they arose in all project stages. Read More. 

Our VDC team has set the standard of what can be achieved once inclusion becomes a conscious and strategic part of team-building.

Having an environment that promotes diverse thinking, has allowed them to optimize project results and fine-tune skills - which has trickled down to benefit clients.
