Virtual Design + Construction

LEMOINE’s in-house Virtual Design + Construction department utilizes state-of-the-art technology to increase our understanding of projects before and during construction.

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is an innovative technology and process that leverages digital models to strategize, visualize, and oversee multiple facets of a construction project. It encompasses the development of virtual representations of buildings, project sites, and related components through the utilization of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software.

LEMOINE employs VDC models to improve the efficiency and accuracy of our construction processes. By creating a detailed digital representation of the project, VDC enables our project teams to collaborate and make informed decisions before physical construction begins.

Some of the key benefits of using VDC models include:

  1. Visualization and Planning: VDC models provide a virtual representation of the project, allowing stakeholders to visualize and understand the design before implementation. This aids in effective planning, identifying potential conflicts, and optimizing designs for constructability.
  2. Improved Collaboration: VDC encourages collaboration among project teams, including architects, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors. By sharing the digital model, all stakeholders can contribute their expertise, identify clashes, and resolve issues early on, reducing rework and improving communication.
  3. Increased Accuracy and Cost Estimation: VDC models enable precise quantity take-offs and measurements, leading to more accurate cost estimations. By linking BIM models with cost databases, construction teams can generate reliable estimates and monitor project costs throughout its lifecycle.
  4. Risk Mitigation: VDC models allow for the identification of potential conflicts and clashes between different building components or systems before construction begins. By detecting and resolving issues virtually, project teams can mitigate risks, minimize change orders, and avoid costly on-site rework.
  5. Schedule Optimization: With VDC, project teams can simulate and analyze construction sequences, identify potential scheduling conflicts, and optimize the project timeline. This helps in creating reliable construction schedules and improving overall project efficiency.
  6. Enhanced Communication and Stakeholder Engagement: VDC models provide an effective means of communicating design intent to clients, consultants, and other project stakeholders. Visualizing the project in a virtual environment facilitates discussions, improves understanding, and helps in making informed decisions.

By leveraging VDC and BIM technologies, LEMOINE’s VDC Department aims to enhance the overall project quality, minimize risks, optimize construction processes, and improve collaboration among various project stakeholders.


Why choose LEMOINE for Virtual Design + Construction

Virtual design and construction was created in response to the issue of cost and schedule overruns. Realizing the proven benefits of BIM throughout the life-cycle of projects, LEMOINE moved to create an internal VDC Department to ensure our projects are all delivered with this additional attention to detail with the highest probability of success.

$250M+ in VDC
Exercises Annually

Our team completes over $250 million in VDC exercises yearly.  This unmatched experience provides our project teams with the most detailed and accurate information to improve collaboration.

2,000+ Conflicts Resolved Annually

Identifying construction conflicts early reduces rework and ultimately change orders that impact the budget and schedule of the project.  

Project Safety

We all know that safety begins with planning. Increased project safety is a natural byproduct of VDC exercises, as they decrease risk and overall time on site.
