BUILDING DESIGN

Build Twice

Virtual Design allows architects, engineers and owners exploring the best possible layouts while keeping costs and specifications under control. BIM, interaction and all the power of computation are here to change the way we design the future.

Our Magic

With the help of BIM and computation we strive to make building design a smarter process, saving time and money to clients, architects and engineers while they define and solve their projects. Design, understand and evaluate in 3D, in an integrated and consistent manner.

Key Benefits

Master the design brief

Design advantages of BIM begin at the concept stage, where our tools can make the difference between good and better. Start with an excel spreadsheet and use it to place and dimension logical units in your project. Then work in 3D and validate sizes and spatial relationships, then update your brief in real-time. Repeat the process until you reach the right layout.

Coordinate in 3D

When all the parts in the project are created and detailed in 3D, misinterpretations become a rarity. With the technologies that we prescribe its almost as if you built the project before actually breaking ground, enabling careful planning and options assessment.

A direct benefit from working in such way is the dramatic improvement on project complexity understanding. Communication no longer depends on agreeing on complex 2D drawings, as still and interactive visualisations can be derived from rich BIM models that include finishes and materials, enabling all stakeholders to fall in love with your project.

Perfect Documents

Drawings and take-offs become a by-product of your models, an automated extraction that makes them accurate and perfect, only pending paper styling. Work with templates and standards that will expedite your submissions while fostering a consistent look across your projects.

Collaborate More

When the whole team works within the same database collaboration becomes non-optional, crucial, same as transparency and coordination. Instead of exchanging sheets and documents start sharing data in a structured manner, be more reactive, deliver a better project.

Cost Control

Working with a consistent 3D database has a clear advantage over dealing with 2D drawings: objects become computable, can be associated to classification systems and costs of model objects can be derived in an automated way. So you can focus on delivering, not on counting.
