Virtual Design and Construction (VDC)
We leverage technology to deliver your project with greater certainty over design intent, estimating, and scheduling.
At Bird, we use building information modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction (VDC) as an integrated process that contains all intelligent information of a structure in a single dedicated model that enables you to visualize the construction
site and optimize the construction schedule. This reduces project risk, requests for information, and on-site change orders, resulting in a smoother project experience.
We use mechanical and electrical systems 'clash identification' in order to deliver
more accurate shop and coordination drawings and we are able to assess building components throughout the lifecycle of a structure from concept to occupancy, supporting design phases, construction cost, project management, and facility management.
Digital Construction Management
Digitization of the job site, along with partner and stakeholder collaboration, is now standard on all Bird projects.
Electronic management, communication, and follow-up of all project drawings, photographs, RFIs, submittals, deficiencies, and quality considerations ensure that all project stakeholders are referencing a single version of the truth at any time, keeping your project on time and on budget.
