VDC for Design Phase Management & Preconstruction
Tuesday, October 20, 2015 to Wednesday, October 21, 2015 
Orlando, Florida

The use of virtual design and construction (VDC) techniques is becoming more widespread in just about every global economy. Governments, such as in the United Kingdom, are even setting targets for required VDC/BIM within the next few years. We would like to explore how the utilization of VDC techniques in the design and planning phase are ultimately impacting our project outcomes.

With architects, engineers, builders, and design-assist trade contractors widely using VDC tools during the design and planning phase, how is this early utilization impacting our ultimate project outcomes?

How are we engaging this newly transparent model based design process? Or are we still missing key interfaces or cross-disciplinary understanding? Are we managing and coping with the iterative design process better, or simply locking in designers earlier? Are we still glorifying the printed set, or have we truly found a new medium of communication (and what does it look like)?

The Construction Open Software Alliance (COSA) is a community of construction industry professionals who support open integration standards in construction software. COSA believes in facilitating an uninhibited flow of information between the complementary software applications construction professionals depend on most. A one-stop-suite is not always the best choice and it is much more efficient for the end user to operate multiple applications when they integrate seamlessly. This is possible through open application standards that are developed and implemented by construction technology providers to facilitate the transfer of cross-application data.
