VDC helps ensure “Safety By Design” i.e. all the stakeholders of a construction project can access a visual representation of the project and access any potential risks associated with it. Many times workers are unable to interpret the technical blueprint of the project due to its complexity but when the same design is incorporated through virtual design it becomes easier for them to understand the design and communicate any safety loopholes that might happen when the project is implemented on the ground.
2)Efficient Project Planning
Since VDC ensures that an entire construction project is presented to all the stakeholders through 3D modeling it helps in efficient planning of the project. Also, as the project with all its intricate details is visible to the site manager, it helps the site manager plan the deadlines and works schedules and communicate the same well in advance to the workers.
In any construction project, the budget plays a huge role as the budgets involved in such projects are anyway huge. Therefore, to avoid any last-minute budget hikes by employing VDC a construction manager can plan all the expenses associated with the project well in advance and can then quote the amount to the prospective clients accordingly.
It is often difficult for the project owner to get through the details associated with the project once the project is completed by the construction company.
But now with VDC the entire 3D model of the project is handed over to the project owner along with the building. This helps ensure better maintenance of the building even after the construction is completed.
Worker productivity is highly essential for any project. With the introduction of VDC, the construction industry is able to enhance worker productivity and reduce wastages and rework as 3D modelling is used in the visualization and construction of these projects.
