Concrete construction & BIM: How Schuster Concrete wins projects and places rebar and concrete with digital tools
Schuster Concrete is a self-performing concrete construction company doing reinforced concrete projects ranging from specialty single family homes to high rise residential towers. In 43 years the company has grown from a small crew pouring home patios to the largest concrete contractor in Maryland (USA), and one of the largest in the Washington D.C. Metro area.
For Schuster Concrete, BIM is a database for all the information needed to design, build and operate. In this webinar VDC Engineer Andrew Tibbetts explains how their bids became more successful, how they got better control over their projects – saving time and money when placing rebar and pouring concrete on site – and how they deliver better value to their clients. You will also hear how Schuster Concrete won a $100M concrete project and effectively planned and optimised their work, detailing and placing 14,000 tons of reinforcing steel, and poured 167000CY / 128000m3 concrete on site.
