Virtual Design and Construction (VDC)

Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), or BIM (building information modeling) is one of the enhanced capabilities P1 brings to our customers. Our technology creates three-dimensional, computer-generated models of buildings, bringing all facets of a project into one document so potential conflicts can be identified prior to construction. P1 has the resources to successfully execute any project that requires BIM or 3D coordination.

Who We Are
At any given time, the P1 Group VDC department has nearly 20 in-house detailers, the majority of whom are from the local trades and have Union field experience. We have all trades under one roof, working side-by-side, including Electrical, Sheet Metal, and Pipe + Plumbing.

The P1 Group VDC Approach
The P1 Group approach includes a collaborative Virtual Design & Construction team effort, taking high priority trades including large sheet metal and welded mechanical pipe, and modeling them in first with minimal fittings and exceptional flows and ease of installation.

Following priority systems, the P1 Group VDC team adds remaining content working towards a 100% clash free model. Our “Smart Data” is embedded in our model for all trades to use and maintain the highest level of craftsmanship.

The VDC team works with the project team to support their needs for 3D Laser Scanning, Trimble Total Station Layout, RFIs and Value Engineering, GC and Owner requests, as well as all Fabrication Spool sheets, labeling, and preferred installation sequences.
