What we do

The Virtual Design & Construction Services group utilizes an array of technology to proactively mitigate project risk, expedite coordination and provide better transparency to our clients. These Building Information Modelling (BIM) tools allow us to build projects on a virtual platform; we create content and manage the integration of highly detailed 3D models to study cost, constructability, and logistics across all disciplines.  The data contained in these models is valuable to assisting the project team to manage interferences, plan and execute the assemblies of the building, as well as downstream in the project cycle, for Facility Management and Building Operations.

As early adopters, EllisDon’s VDC group has changed the way the Canadian construction industry functions. As we continue to expand, we are influencing the supply chain internationally, revitalizing the way we approach Design, Construction and Asset Management.    

who we are

The Virtual Design & Construction Services began in 2007 and the group has grown remarkably ever since. The group has a presence in all areas of EllisDon with professional VDC Coordinators on site and regional VDC Managers who bring exceptional technical skills in both BIM implementation during pre-construction, onsite 3D interference management during construction, as well as providing services to develop cutting edge systems for facilities management, in the post-construction phase. We maintain and utilize the latest tools, devices, software and technology to enhance and drive our construction work.
