Virtual Design and Construction

Virtual Design and Construction

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the method with which projects will be digitally handled in future. The planning and realization of construction projects using BIM is already a client requirement in many countries. The method is based on the active networking of all parties involved in the construction with the help of a 3D computer model that can be enhanced with further information such as time, costs and usage.

HOCHTIEF recognized BIM’s potential at a very early stage and already initiated “virtual building” as a focus of innovation back in 2003. With the establishment of a dedicated company for virtual construction—HOCHTIEF ViCon GmbH—HOCHTIEF is regarded as a pioneer in this area. Today HOCHTIEF ViCon is the Group’s BIM competence center and is putting the future of digital construction into practice worldwide.
