VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) has come to be regarded as a powerful methodology for managing projects in a rapidly evolving construction industry.  VDC effectively translates client building performance objectives into measurable project and production plans. This is achieved through concurrent orchestration of multiple disciplines, integration of information made seamlessly accessible to support the project team and workflows leading to decisions that will stick.

The mission of the VDC Europe conference is to share best practices in VDC implementation from projects and companies in Europe.  Through case examples shared by owners, designers and builders, the conference will focus on shared understanding of VDC best practices.  Themes will include, but not be limited to:

  • Integration of project teams, tools & information and processes
  • Use of VDC for achieving sustainability objectives
  • VDC from the owner’s perspective

We invite the VDC community in Europe to present VDC stories based on the themes above.  A tentative agenda can be found here.  We would encourage you to join our Linkedin group to stay connected with us.

"I see the need for the construction industry to work together on developing and improving. I've seen the great effect of using VDC and this is something we need to share with everyone in the industry because I truly believe, I know, this is the way to go"
