Description

As the construction industry is rapidly evolving, Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is being increasingly used to effectively translate client building performance objectives into measurable project and production plans. In this course, you'll gain knowledge in workflow, design planning and virtual modeling through VDC and how it can improve the building experience in three ways:

  1. Concurrent orchestration of multiple disciplines to design useable, operable and sustainable buildings
  2. Integration of information that's made seamlessly accessible to support a project team
  3. Workflows carried out by the project team to lead to decisions that will stick
