    DPR Construction has the opportunity to work on some of the biggest projects across the globe. But rooted in the company's culture is a focus on applying excellence to projects of any scale. Small projects bring a set of challenges of their own: tight schedules, limited budget, thinly spread teams, and, most of the time, existing conditions. Virtual design and construction (VDC) can play a big role in delivering successful outcomes, but it takes the right mix of people, process, and technology. Join us for an engaging session where we'll walk through how DPR adapts to the unique challenges of smaller projects. We'll talk about the technology we almost always apply (spoiler: it's reality capture) and what tech we leave at home. And finally, we'll describe the type of person required to overcome small project challenges and how we go beyond collaboration with training, design support, and access to Autodesk tools.

    Key Learnings

    • Gain insights into how DPR fosters relationships with design teams and trade partners to grow with tech.
    • Learn how to select the right tools and implement coordination in a nimble and quick manner on smaller projects.
    • Learn about implementing reality capture on small projects to improve design, which is key to almost every small project at DPR.
    • Learn about applying a different strategic point of view on how to implement a range of VDC processes on smaller projects.
