Technology Tools

The full industry impact of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) has yet to be realized, and at CDI we are on the forefront of this major movement in our industry.

CDI embraces Building Information Modeling with a full time BIM department utilizing cutting-edge technology in our Preconstruction phases and throughout our processes. These tools allow us to better understand the designed building, and integrate more effectively with design teams and building owners. We can coordinate models from subcontractors, identify and correct installation and site logistic problems early in our process, visually analyze and plan renovation schedules to minimize impact on current building tenants, clearly communicate our plans with building owners and subcontractors, and deliver an information rich Facilities Management model at the end of a project.

We also use an Internet-based Project Management System as a central database for document management and information sharing with the Owner and A/E Design Team. The Project Management System is available anywhere with internet access and expedites coordination, communication & response time by tracking the following:

  • Shop Drawings & Submittals
  • Requests For information (RFl)
  • Daily Diaries
  • Meeting Log, Agendas & Minutes
  • Correspondence
  • Progress Photos
