CDI is on the forefront of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) in our industry.
We are harnessing the current value of BIM and looking forward to what this game-changing movement has to offer as people, processes, and technology grow and improve to provide new and exciting ways to plan, communicate, construct, and manage buildings.
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 logistics 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. Available anywhere with internet access, this system expedites coordination, communication and response time by tracking:
- Shop drawings & submittals
- Requests For Information (RFl)
- Daily diaries
- Meeting logs, agendas & minutes
- Progress photos
