VDC | Virtual Design and Construction

 

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) allow you to see and experience your new facility and process 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.
