Projects are completed easier and quicker when everyone is working with the same vision and using the same information. Raymond achieves this collaboration with the support of our Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) team. Raymond and our VDC team members are experts at facilitating your project through value engineering, providing complex BIM modeling and proposing less expensive and more constructible alternatives.
The Raymond VDC team thrives on keeping the job and the process as smart and simple as possible. By using building information modeling, different stakeholders on the project collaborate by adding, modifying, or updating information in a shared model, resulting in a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of the project. This digital representation then becomes a resource that is leveraged to make decisions, even after the building has been completed and occupied.
This method of incorporating all stakeholders early into the process is called integrated project delivery, or IPD. Paired with BIM, it is the perfect method for larger more difficult projects.
Defining a project through the BIM and IPD process, helps to better define your costs and establish your budgets. With the high levels of coordination by Raymond estimators, engineers, project managers, superintendents and BIM modelers, you can identify discrepancies and conflicts so they can be addressed early, making you more efficient once work begins.
To be the preferred BIM and technical resource for Raymond’s management, field operations, and customers by providing best-in-class information, creating significant competitive advantages, and improving the overall project value.
