Architectural & Building Systems

Intelligent Multi-Disciplinary 3D Model Integration

DBM Vircon employs innovative modeling practices to integrate intelligent multi-disciplinary 3D models, leveraged across the Design-Build-Manage lifecycle. Working alongside project teams, we create models and drawings for architectural, fixtures and equipment (FF&E),  heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), electrical and plumbing disciplines. These models quickly and easily facilitate greater project efficiencies, collaboration and visualizations for planning, design development, construction, as-built verification and operational use. Our experience, meticulous attention to detail and use of technology, delivers our clients superior value and unrivalled quality.

Maximize Efficiency and Coordination

Insightful Automation

Our custom software can automate repetitive manual tasks, while increasing accuracy, to boost staff time on design modeling and define rules to generate hundreds of innovative design options.

Lifelike Visualization and Animation

We create photorealistic renderings, animations, 3D models, documentation and cut-aways so you can better explore, validate and communicate designs to your clients and project stakeholders.

Multi-Disciplinary Collaboration

With our custom-built processes and platforms, multiple disciplines can share model data. Linking service models and geometry enables early clash detection, for resolution by us or the engineer.

Reduced Costs

Our data-rich models are able to detect design errors early on and eradicate clashes. Without delays and rework, you can dramatically reduce costs and provide clients with highly accurate quotes.

Reduced, Accurate Project Timeframes

Architectural integration helps ensures the project lifecycle is smooth and efficient, with parallel workflows and reduced duplication, rework and delays. This can reduce a timeframe by up to 12%.

Reliably Precise Modeling

With DBM Vircon, multi-disciplinary modeling is seamless and reduces risks through precise visualization. Our services include:
