Architectural &Building Systems

Seamlessly Streamlined Architectural Integration

DBM Vircon employs intelligent data to precisely and seamlessly integrate a variety of architectural aspects into complex commercial, industrial, bridge and building system models, as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), electrical, plumbing and fire services and furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E). From design to construction, our precisely perfect models quickly and easily facilitate the generation of construction drawings and coordination review, as well as visualizations for planning, design development, construction, as-built and marketing purposes.

Our models provide you with the meticulous information you need to resolve design conflicts, particularly in critical areas such as connections and joints, supporting structures and facades. You can also expedite floor planning and scheduling—all of which saves you time, improves efficiencies and slashes project budgets.

Maximise Efficiency While Minimising Clashes

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%.
