vScenario leverages their preconstruction expertise to work with design professionals and manufacturers to ensure that the correct details are developed during the design process. The team maximizes virtual design and construction technologies to help make the right decisions during design and appropriately set the stage for construction. In particular, we utilize the model to integrate detailed components to validate cost, analyze design decisions, systems integration, and ultimately as a tool to communicate design intent to trade contractors.
We use BIM for detailing components to communicate the design intent to subcontractors. This not only improves the quality of the install, but it provides better pricing at bid time by removing uncertainties in the design.
vScenario are experts at managing the BIM coordination process. The team oversees interdisciplinary coordination meetings to detect clashes between systems. This process significantly improves productivity during installation and reduces cost impacts from issues in the field.
Members of the vScenario team pioneered utilizing full-scale foam mock-ups to analyze design and finishes. This process saved time and money in the design approval process, but it also allowed the owner to analyze different finishes using modern VR technologies. This process also provided trade contractors with a thorough understanding of design intent, which enabled our team to get accurate pricing models early in the design process.
