Since 1973 PDC has led the BIM and detailing industries, being one of the first to utilise 3D and BIM for the detailing of steel structures.
PDC has continued to innovate and evolve. Our capabilities now encompass all construction engineering design disciplines, and project and asset management, to offer a full BIM project lifecycle.
Our multidisciplinary teams create highly accurate, scaled virtual models of each structural component. Using our proprietary technology which has revolutionised the industry, these independent models and data are integrated and standardised to produce a single 3D model simulation of the entire structure.
This integrated model contains all information necessary for all functional requirements of a project including procurement and logistics, financial modelling, claims and litigation, fabrication, construction support and asset management. The integration of the various design disciplines enables the identification and resolution of clashes, eliminating mistakes which can cause delays and additional costs during fabrication and onsite construction.
Understanding the importance of the 3D data contained in the models has driven PDC to develop stringent business and quality systems, enabling clients to utilise this data in their workflow processes, such as automated fabrication techniques. The technology increases productivity both at the design and detailing stages, and on site through more efficient construction processes and systems.
