Vico Office Unplugged


Three stools - one stage. No, it's not a Behind the Music special about your favorite 80's hair band who spent the last decade in rehab and emerged flabby and bald.  It's Vico Office Unplugged.


Join Vico co-founders as they candidly discuss the last five years of the construction market, where we see the market heading, and the technology and methodology we're bringing to the table.

Here's your chance to ask Vico executives anything. No question is out of bounds and we'll take the software off-road, too.


Discuss with Mark Sawyer, CEO and president, how the market contraction is impacting GCs and CMs around the world and what Vico is doing to respond, both with service offerings and software applications. Is the time right to migrate estimating and scheduling practices from paper to model-based exercises? How can BIM be applicable in hard bid situations when the turn-around time is so tight? And how can we partner more closely with both Designers and GC's?


Clay Freeman, Chief Product Officer, will explain the evolution of Vico Office and how the idea of the first integrated construction management solution came to fruition. Clay will open up the software and walk through the integrated modules of Vico Office. We'll see why certain components had to be invented to match the work flow of a project team and how the solution is able to keep up with constant design change. Clay will also compare and contrast Vico Office with "glue-ware," software that can perform a task once but then must be completely rebuilt to accommodate change.


As Owners become more BIM-savvy, it's important that GCs deliver more transparency to the building process.  No one understands this better than Don Henrich, EVP of Sales and Marketing.  He's witnessed the industry begin to migrate to cooperative and collaborative practices and then retreat to Hard Bid and he's participated in successful, progressive projects.  We'll discuss with Don what Owners want most from their partners, the challenges many firms continue to face, as well as his advice for GCs just getting started with BIM.  Don will propose a roadmap for 5D that challenges design teams and GCs to move beyond modeling.


We hope that this unrehearsed discussion delivers the ideas and insights you're looking for. We have been developing the groundwork for Vico Office for just over five years now, partnering with the most innovative GCs around the globe to deliver real-world solutions.  Now that we're ready to reveal the complete 5D solution, we want to share with you the blood, sweat, and tears (another band, but no affiliation to Vico) that went into it. 


Come with your hard-hitting questions. We'll answer everything off the cuff and share the stories behind Vico Office. We promise no singing.
