How we work
With our research activities and service portfolio, we cover the entire value chain of real estate projects. ViCon stands for Virtual Design and Construction – planning and simulating the construction and operation of a building by means of a computer. ViCon typically uses three-dimensional models at every project stage which can be used for many different tasks in the entire life cycle of a building. The models can be recycled, enabling all project members to minimize cost, shorten deadlines and optimize quality.
Building Information Modeling is a highly innovative technology. In this context, it is vital to ensure that the information generated can be utilized in the most efficient and comprehensive way possible. That’s why our BIM approach is based on five integral components. The first four components are processes, people, technology and policy. They are supported by the management component which ensures that the other four components can work in harmony. The BIM Manager identifies the project’s requirements in the four core components.

As it develops and applies 3D models, HOCHTIEF ViCon consistently relies on its world-wide network and the expertise of the other company units. HOCHTIEF has partnerships with external service providers, software producers and leading universities in the realm of virtual construction.
