Engaging and Training a Field-Based, VDC-Enabled Workforce

Nov 7, 2019 10:30am ‐ Nov 7, 2019 11:30am

Identification: 1004

Credits: None available.

Instead of centralizing Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) efforts and technology expertise within a specific department or group of people, Barton Malow empowers all project stakeholders to leverage the right technology at the right time starting early in the design phase to optimize communication, collaboration, and transparency. The design-build delivery method enables our VDC subject matter experts to partner early with members of each project team to plan and implement a project-tailored technology strategy. This presentation will highlight the challenges and benefits of empowering a VDC-enabled workforce and describe the process in which we improve accessibility to project-tailored tools that capitalize on the strengths of all project team members.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn strategies for partnering subject matter experts with the design-build team to solve specific project challenges. Knowing what works and what doesn’t will help you streamline project staffing for maximized use of technology in the field.
  • Understand how to improve accessibility and ease of use, such as through alternative hardware, software, and dedicated space on-site for working with a Building Information Model (BIM).
  • Learn appropriate methods for shepherding project data throughout the project lifecycle. Minimizing data re-entry throughout the design-build process improves efficiency, accuracy and quality for the Owner’s final electronic deliverable.
  • Understand how mobile technologies are optimizing the way we communicate, collaborate, and bring transparency to the design-build process.
