Construct-ability review and Pre-construction Modelling of a project is beyond the standard practice for architectural design.
The architect is concerned with client objectives, desires and budget; space layout and flow; aesthetic intent; as well as code compliance and planning department requirements.
We virtually build the building exactly as we would in the field, this gives us the most accurate prototype before construction has even commenced. Along this path from review to model, plan mistakes, omissions and system clashes are discovered. These issues are simply not found in the typical process of architectural design.
At Virtual Builders, we're changing this process. With more than twenty years' field construction, we have seen and resolved, many construction issues like those you face almost daily on your projects. We found, not surprisingly in retrospect, that when modelling the structure and systems of the project, those very same hidden issues that we would have encountered during construction are right there in the model. The advantage is, finding these issues during the modelling process doesn’t cost money and time to correct, since the issues get resolved well before construction commences.
We are able to help the custom home builder gain a better understanding of the construction aspects of the project, resulting in a smoother construction schedule and significant savings by flagging potential issues long before they are ‘in-place’ problems.

Save time and money and invest in a professional estimate to ensure an no-surprises, stress free project.
Knowing the quantities and costs of your project from the outset, you'll be able to effectively manage the process of engaging Subcontractors and suppliers and feel confident in negotiating supply and installation prices to best deliver your project.
At Virtual Builders we can prepare a detailed specification.
This important document allows all stakeholders to review the take off and actually see what has been allowed. If the Project Architect has already issued a specification with the plans, we incorporate this into our documents.
Our specifications set a very clear base line for any future variations to the contract, this becomes very important in what can be a tricky process at times.
