Advice for Developing Your Core VDC Team

 

How do you get to be a leader in Virtual Design and Construction?  Is there a formula to follow – is there a roadmap?  Trimble's Customer Success Program certainly outlines a regular diet of training and workshops, plus real-life projects to gain experience and “shake the fear off.”  But what should your company do to stake out ground in the ever-competitive market for new BIM projects?

 

There is no magic bullet.  But the team at Hoar Construction in Birmingham,
Alabama
 is willing to share what worked and what didn’t work for them as they worked
toward BIM Maturity and started to master project delivery with this new rigor.  So join us on the next Fridays with Trimble webinar to learn from one of the pioneers in the industry – a team that is digging deep to improve their Virtual Construction efforts and
capabilities.

This isn’t going to be a chest-thumping session – quite the opposite.  We’ll learn what worked, what didn’t work, and how the team developed its own leaders.  Specifically, we’ll look at three initiatives that the team rolled out:


The Database – The team put a lot of thought, debate, and effort into the best
  way to transform their existing estimating data into an extensible database usable
  for model-based estimating.
Project Progression Planning – In order to provide the most value to the owner
  and the designers, the Hoar team developed strategies for mapping, in detail, how
  each element of the project would be developed through the design process –
  not just with respect to the model, but to data and cost, as well.

An honest evaluation of traditional methods versus VDC methods – It took time
  to really learn how the model-based 5D process is supposed to work before conclusions
  could be made about how and where to target the model-based VDC effort.
  Does it work on every project or proposal?

 

We’re not suggesting that you do everything the Hoar Team did.  In fact, at our recent Customer Advisory Board in Vail, there were very different approaches to VDC Mastery – yet the end goal of using innovation for continuous improvement is where everyone wants to be. We hope this webinar will open up an honest debate at your firm. Are we losing deals by not moving fast enough? Are we losing good employees to competing firms who stress innovation? Do we want to dominate our market as the go-to firm for BIM projects, and what’s holding us back?

 

Your team will want to join this webinar if:

• You want to learn one way to get from 0 to 5D;
• You want to understand how executive management can encourage risk taking;
• You want to learn how a firm ramped up its own estimating database;
• You want to see how to bring fun back to your construction efforts;
• You want to hear what it was like for a firm who travelled across a desert before
  reaping the rewards;
• You want to wow Owners with new project deliverables and a better overall
  experience.

 

So join us and see how new VDC leaders are changing the landscape and pushing the envelope with their enthusiasm and unique capabilities.
