Vico Office Named to Top Commercial Construction Products List

Constructech Magazine Gives Nod to Vico Office for Uniqueness and Momentum

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Vico Office, the virtual construction platform from Vico Software, has been named to Constructech Magazine's Top Commercial Construction Products list. The products were judged by Constructech's editorial team on leading-edge features, uniqueness in the market, customer adoption rates, and usability.

With Vico Office, General Contractors can combine BIM models from multiple sources (like the architect, structural engineers, and subcontractors) and in multiple formats (such as IFC, Tekla, ArchiCAD, CAD-Duct, and Revit). With the models inside the Vico Office platform, users can take the 3D model all the way from clash detection for coordination and quantity takeoff to 4D scheduling and 5D estimating. The solution permits local-area-network access, so project stakeholders can take part in constructability analyses, cost planning, schedule look-ahead meetings, and budget review sessions.

"Construction professionals are looking for the solutions that can give them the most bang for their buck. They are looking to make their company better with the implementation of technology, as well as stay up with the latest trends in the construction industry," says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor of Constructech. "The technology firms with products meeting that demand may prove to be the most successful."

Vico Software recently announced new functionality for the Vico Office platform, including a new clash detection module. (Please read the corresponding press releases, Vico Software Releases Vico Office Upgrade, and Vico Software Announces Vico Office Constructability Manager.) 

"The Constructech Top Products Award validates the 5D virtual construction vision that Vico has pioneered," confirmed Mark Sawyer, CEO and President of Vico Software. "We believe that providing an integrated workflow for virtual construction can power data-driven decisions. In bringing efficiencies and savings to construction projects, the transition to 4D and 5D is just as compelling as the preceding moves from paper to computer and from drawings to 3D models."
