VDC / BIM Coordination
Better, smarter, faster building: VDC & BIM.
The Virtual Design and Construction process makes the most of the latest innovations in 3D BIM drafting, in order to visualize, analyze, and manage our projects with maximum efficiency.
The VDC process streamlines our projects by creating a more cohesive collaboration effort across all trades, allowing for better scheduling, constructability, cost planning, material take-off, and the prefabrication of ductwork and piping. VDC provides:
• Value to our clients by reducing costs and increasing quality on a shorter schedule.
• Value to our workers in the field, by increasing safety, productivity, and efficiency.
• Value to the project team by having a higher quality of coordination, communication and planning.
Our Engineers and BIM Technicians use the latest, cutting-edge Revit and Navisworks software to lay out our mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, coordinate with other trades, and see how our crew can construct the building before we get on site. Our in-house shop uses additional software to prefabricate and preassemble, directly based on the virtual model of the building, minimizing on-site waste, installation time, and hours in the field spent on fabrication.
At G.J. Hopkins, Inc., we are continually building and improving our VDC process to ensure we set ourselves apart from the competition. By maximizing the most recent innovations in technology, our goal is to create much more than just a model; it’s to give a greater value to our projects and our clients.
