Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) allow you to see and experience your new facility before even breaking ground. C.D. Smith uses powerful VDC technology to not only create digital models of buildings and project sites but also to analyze construction plans from start to finish, for enhancing communication and collaboration through all phases of our design and construction journey - from preconstruction to operations and maintenance.

Lean Construction Planning on World's Tallest Hybrid Mass Timber Tower | Beneath the Hard Hat® 12.13.2022
As an added service, C.D. Smith Construction has a fully staffed Virtual Design and Construction team that can assist with virtual reality tour models prior to breaking ground!
A navigable model with all the building’s information speaks volumes and can give clients the power to make informed decisions before construction begins. This leaves less opportunity for costly change orders and rework.
We understand that clients, board members, tenants and faculty do not read floor plans, elevations and building component schedules daily. Therefore we can create a real-time visualization of 3D spaces. This reflects aesthetics, lighting, functionality and dynamics all in one digestible model that can be easily interpreted.
When Procore BIM (Building Information Modeling) is activated across our projects, owners can be active contributors during the design and contractor coordination process leading up to the fabrication of building components. It allows them to see the building design progress and ask for changes along the way. This creates a feasible and realistic tool for clients and the entire project team. Through Procore, the onsite team has one united drawing set and master model among all contractors, so everyone is building off the current coordinated design.
Keeping connected to the jobsite’s progress can be done through many means. Drone flights offer stunning visuals and construction cameras provide a live stream of the current activities on the site.
The experience is optimized with 360-degree photography services. It's like walking the jobsite without physically being there. Viewers are instantly taken to an interactive view of the space by logging in on a computer or mobile device. This information can prove invaluable during facility management. The information is archived and time stamped, allowing facility managers to view spaces without ceilings, drywall, insulation or access flooring. They can see all of the as-built building's components that are now covered up.
