ACCO stands at the forefront of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), using three-dimensional (3-D) CAD visualization software for pre-construction trade coordination and product fabrication for HVAC, Process and Plumbing projects. Due to the space impact of these systems, ACCO leads the coordination process and works with the General Contractor and subcontractors to facilitate and manage coordination utilizing Navisworks software. ACCO has the capability to facilitate 3-D coordination meetings including creation and management of Clash Detection reports. Coordination meetings can be held in our ACCO offices, facilitated at a jobsite, or hosted electronically utilizing Web Conferencing.
ACCO has more than 20 years of experience utilizing Autodesk Fabrication to accelerate our plumbing, sheet metal and piping fabrication. Applying Lean Construction principles, our 3-D capability permits significant prefabrication for “just-in-time” delivery.
Our recent experience with challenging coordination projects includes HVAC, Process and Plumbing scopes within hospitals, laboratories, and GMP manufacturing facilities. ACCO brings knowledge and depth to any design and construction team providing a catalyst for successful implementation of Virtual Design and Construction.
