Building on our history to construct one scalable, efficient and sustainable future
Through 2016 and 2017, our parent company DBM Global acquired the top modeling and detailing brands in the industry, who had deep expertise in their sector with proven innovative approaches and delivery methods. These brands were brought together under DBM Vircon to fully leverage the synergistic output of more seamless and comprehensive solutions utilizing technology for optimized project delivery. Together we have formed a premier construction modeling, detailing and digital engineering company that delivers sophisticated projects with state-of-the-art technology, uncompromising detail and nano precision.
Today, we have operations across four continents in eight countries forming one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated 3D Modeling, Detailing and Digital Engineering companies in the world. We are uniquely positioned to manage large-scale and labor-intensive projects.
Our legacy brands
A global Building Information Modeling, structural steel and rebar detailing firm with a long record of iconic projects, since 1964 BDS Vircon has worked with top-tier fabricators, general contractors, engineers, owners and EPCM firms on a broad range of commercial projects, from convention centers and theaters, through to hotels and high-rise buildings.
Founded in Canada in 1979, Candraft was a leading innovator in Bridge Information Modeling. Their 3D bridge modeling and detailing services combined detail with innovation to bring project concepts to life and strengthen efficiency from end-to-end. As one of the first adopters of Tekla 3D modeling software and an experienced team of bridge detailers, they have successfully completed over 300 bridge projects.
Since 1972, PDC has grown to become an internationally recognized global integrated design, detailing and Building Information Modeling (BIM) consulting firm. PDC delivered hundreds of structural steel projects in the industrial sectors, including mining and minerals processing, oil and gas and infrastructure in over 25 countries worldwide.
We go beyond traditional detailing to deliver full lifecycle solutions, from initial concepts through to a build-ready plan and asset management, by leveraging our expertise with the latest 3D Building Information Modeling technologies. We believe the traditional construction model that supports a siloed approach of services fractures shared knowledge and a project’s continuity. The resulting increased cost is avoidable. With our expertise, far-reaching experience and our innovative platform of technologies, we give transparency to critical path activities so project stakeholders can make better-informed decisions during the design, pre-construction planning and execution phases.
“We continue disrupting accepted practices by pushing both technological and process driven boundaries. Through this innovative approach we are well positioned to identify opportunities that optimize design and enhance constructibility early in the project life cycle.”
