Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video VDC coordinator, part of BIM Management: Careers.
- [Instructor] In the United States,…it's much more common to hear the term "VDC"…than it is over in Europe.…Now, the exact reasons why, I'm uncertain of,…but what I can tell you is that…in the United States, you're more likely…to be a BIM coordinator if you happen to work…for an architecture or engineering office.…But, the term VDC, for Virtual Design in Construction,…is much more common on the general contractor…side of the business, or on the subcontractor side…of the business.…
So, on the construction side.…Now, a VDC coordinator is almost identical…to a BIM coordinator as far as their professional…skills are concerned.…Their education either comes from a professional degree,…from a tech school, or from actual experience…out in the field.…One thing that is kind of unique, though,…about VDC coordinators, is that oftentimes,…those VDC people will be individuals that have…worked out in the construction, out in the field,…for years.…
