BDS VirCon - Steel Detailing, Rebar Detailing, Virtual Construction, and BIM
Using state of the art software technology with systems and procedures we produce the highest quality shop drawings and models to LOD 400 specifications for fabrication, erection and a range of Construction BIM deliverables such as: 3D Modelling. Shop Drawings, Erection Plans, Anchor Bolt Drawings, Connection Sketches, DSTV Files for Cutting & Drilling, DXF Files for Plate work, Field Bolt Lists, Project Tracking Controls, Advance Bill of Material, BIM Modelling & Clash Detection, Piping
Our services include rebar detailing and estimating where we work directly with contractors, installers and engineers.. Our services include: Field Placement/Shop Drawings, 3D Modelling of Rebar, Connection Sketches, Bar Listing, Project Co-ordination Weight and/or Cost Change Tracking and Submitting.
We create models with real time computer aided construction simulation resulting in accurate, 3D modelling phases. We are one of the world's largest virtual construction firms and strive to remain our reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the industry. The planning, construction and productions models are all integrated into our Virtual Construction.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BDS VirCon is a virtual construction company where BIM processes are a vital part of our construction projects. BIM is a virtual model of a structure which shows the phyisical characteristics of a building. BIM are designed by engineers, architects and surveyors before being handed over to the contractors. BDS VirCon are BIM experts, we invest in the latest technology to consistently be industry leaders in virtual construction.
Forensic Modelling & Animation
BDS VirCon has used its extensive modelling experience and our construction knowledge to create high quality animations that have been critical in helping our clients win a range of construction disputes from variation claims to land-mark court cases. Success in construction disputes is largely determined by how effectively you communicate and get others to accept your position, the benefits are real:
- Visualise and orientate intricate construction sites
- Animate construction activities and plot their impact
- Illustrate complex situations graphically with timelines
- Communicate through persuasive 3-D and 4-D mediums
Using our experienced staff to analyse the project data, we recreate all construction activates including earthwork, fabrication, erection, ducting, cabling, glazing; featuring concrete, steel, brick, timber, asphalt, glass, etc. Then through digital modelling and the latest BIM technology we produce persuasive videos and fly-throughs from 4-D models, which include the timing and sequence of events. Our proprietary technology links a relational database to the models and the animation, enabling visual scenario planning and ‘what if’ analysis of the case.
Recent advances in technology have significantly reduced the cost of producing these animations- they can be used far more widely, even to resolve variation claims and minor site disputes. We have a proven track-record of success, where our expertise was critical to our clients winning significant damages in complex cases, some of the cases we were involved in were:.
