Builiding Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) is an integrated process that improves the line of communication and collaboration efforts between stakeholders during the lifecycle of a structure from concept to completion. VDC uses BIM technology to assist the proposed construction strategies to find more efficient methods. The ultimate goal is to deliver a successful construction project by increasing communication efforts amongst the project team, accelerating decision making timeframes, and validating costs. We work with the building information model supplied by the design team and further develop it to be used in construction processes such as:

  • IT Systems
  • Electrical & Mechanical installation
  • Sub Trades scope communication
  • Estimating
  • Prefabrication
  • Production
  • Tracking & Monitoring


“Canem adds incredible value to our customers with our BIM & VDC services by identifying constructability issues early on in the pre-construction stage and will propose viable solutions and as-built models to be used throughout the life cycle of their projects.”

VDC creates digital models of buildings and project sites. Architects, engineers, and contractors use VDC models to visualize and plan building designs, processes, schedules, budgets, and more. VDC technology allows companies to analyze construction plans from start to finish before breaking ground.


A highly visual, interactive method of presenting relevant digital information in the context of the physical environment. Construction AR offers a better way to create and deliver easily consumable work instructions by overlaying digital content onto real-world work environments.


Depending on the category, the as-built model shows exact location of structural, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical members by displaying exact geometry and dimensions of all visible elements at the time of the survey.


When the entire interior design team is looking at the 3D as-built model of a building, they can all add their comments and collaborate on a Common Data Environment reducing the number of change orders

Virtual Design and Construction

The management of integrated multi-disciplinary performance models of design, construction, and work processes. This allows for the creation of the digital twin of a project, wherein data information can be effectively managed.
