VIRTUAL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

ONE INTEGRATED MODEL

VDC allows the design and construction team to estimate, coordinate, plan, and build a project in the virtual space, long before construction begins. One integrated model enables early decision making, better trade coordination, and enhanced project execution. VDC brings together people, process, and technology to provide an integrated solution that saves time and money.

3-D COORDINATION & BIM 

ERMCO’s VDC process maximizes both field knowledge and technology. 3D coordination and BIM modeling is performed in‐house.

 

Deliverables include:

 

  • Detailed fabrication, installation and as-built drawings

  • Value engineering

  • Enhanced coordination of materials fit

  • Real-time modeling and layout coordination with design team

  • Cost efficiencies driven by layout and planning

  • Interactive submittal review process

  • Enhanced schedules

  • Clash detection and visualization

  • Quantity take-offs for estimating

  • Constructability of final designs

INTEGRATED MODEL AND FABRICATION MANAGEMENT

At ERMCO, the same VDC engineers are collaborating with you to manage the project’s BIM and to develop strategic fabrication and modular construction solutions. Our VDC team includes seasoned IBEW field leaders and construction management graduates, who are engaged throughout the preconstruction and construction process. This integrated approach blends the use of technology with practical knowledge to improve installations and reduce costs.
