Virtual Design & Construction Committee
The VDC committee is a group of professionals in the industry that work together to advance the use of technology in the construction process. The VDC is divided into two sub-committees:
The Education Sub-committee: Will study and recommend the best way for the group to educate the industry about VDC, addressing the multiple levels of education (basic to advanced) and across participants (Subs, GCs, Designers, Owners, & Academia)
Process Sub-committee: Will focus primarily on “Handoff Checklists” looking at the needs based on multiple delivery methods. The sub-committee will also look at the lifecycle of the model to determine some best practices (QA/QC, contracts, owner buy-in, early involvement, etc).
The mission of the HR committee is to serve as a forum for sharing best practices in all areas of HR as well as offering input for the Salary Survey and the Benefits Survey that will go out to the members.
