Innovative Building Is Better Building
Simply put, we believe that our VD&C processes consistently separate us from our competitors. Swinerton provides clients with the best in class BIM technologies combined with VD&C processes for 3D (CAD), 4D (schedule simulation), 5D (cost-estimating) and 6D (building life-cycle performance analysis) to ensure that their projects are built faster, less expensively and with the highest quality.
Adding Value Through Technology
Swinerton gains a tremendous amount of knowledge about the project by first building it virtually. Not only are unclear design intent issues and design errors discovered before construction, but RFI and Submittal communications become more clear with the design team through the use of the Virtual Design & Construction (VD&C) model. Communications among the various building trades become more collaborative, risk is reduced for everyone, and costs become more transparent. Schedules become more attainable as “what must be done, when” becomes clear to the whole construction team.
Since the start of our VD&C initiative in 2007, Swinerton has applied VD&C technologies such on 162 projects totaling more than 49.9 million square feet and a combined construction value of over $11 billion.
