NCC the market leader in digital design and constructionRead original
NCC has now certified its 50th specialist in virtual design and construction (VDC), a work method now used by the company in all major construction projects. The certification course has been customized by Stanford University and is the most advanced of its kind anywhere in the world.
“This is a key area when it comes to building more efficiently and offering our customers even better solutions. Expertise in digitization strengthens our position as a leading construction company,” says Svante Hagman, Business Area Manager, NCC Infrastructure.
NCC’s newly certified VDC specialists come from all areas of the Nordic region and their expertise will play an invaluable role in all of NCC’s major construction projects. NCC is a market leader in the VDC industry thanks, in part, to its close partnership with Stanford University since 1999.
Few other companies in the world have 50 certified VDC specialists. And even more employees will receive training in the future.
“NCC is at the forefront of the industry when it comes to VDC and we want to maintain this position by providing our employees with continuous training in cutting-edge technology,” says Jan Byfors, Chief Technology Officer at NCC.
VDC is a new method of working made possible by recent advances in computer technology. The method was first developed in the 1990s and has been integrated into the operations of construction companies throughout the 2000s. More advanced computer programs and new ways of working give construction companies better control over everything from design, planning, engineering and safety to the construction process itself.
This enables faster and higher quality construction and superior designs. VDC also makes it easier to meet the customer’s needs since it is possible to view the building in a virtual environment before it is built and subsequently offer alternative solutions.
