The Virtual Construction Department (VDC) at Mascaro plays a critical role in new construction, as well as renovation projects. Embracing the technology early-on, Mascaro has been able to provide clients with enormous benefits by leveraging Building Information Modeling (BIM) into its projects.
By implementing the use of programs such as Revit, Sketchup, and Navisworks, the BIM workflow incorporates the use of 3D modeling, scheduling (4D), estimating (5D), and clash detection services with an integral database to allow for the capture and sharing of rich information associated with a given project. Additionally, the use of 360° cameras and Robotic Total Stations have proven to be immensely useful in maintaining quality on projects.
The department provides services that span from the design phase through construction and, sometimes, into the operations and maintenance phase of a project. Additionally, the department works with the marketing department in the preparation of proposals and presentations to address site logistics planning and demonstrate Mascaro’s understanding of the projects.
