Vico executives and product experts share the latest news, trends, and opinions. Often thought-provoking and always pushing the envelope, Vico Blogs are sure to get the discussion started.
I would like to use this blog as a place to discuss the Agenda of Virtual Construction™, or as my friend, Jerry Laiserin, would put it…. BIM-4-Builders™. (I really like that, Jerry. I wish I had thought of it first.) Webster’s defines “Agenda” as a list of items of business to be considered and discussed at a meeting. It’s true that the BIM wave is sweeping over the AECO industry, and it’s also true that there is no shortage of items to be considered and discussed relative to the impact of BIM on the tasks, deliverables, interactions, and processes of building design and construction.

The Flying Dutchman
In this Blog I will write about the new approach to estimating that we at Vico have been practicing for about 3 years now. It’s about a technology that has been around for much longer, but has become more popular with the increasing adoption of BIM. This blog is about Model Based Estimating.
