Virtual Design Consulting

Advancing the AEC Industry through Integrated
Subsurface & Building Information Modeling

The Virtual Design Consulting Group at UES works closely with architects, engineers, and contractors to help integrate and manage subsurface and building information models (SIM/BIM) for design-construction projects.
We provide technology-based professional consulting that creates digital models of building components, project sites, subsurface utilities, and geological conditions. Our designers can use these models to visualize and plan building designs, processes, schedules, budgets, and more, enabling our clients to make informed, real-world decisions about their assets.

Our highly-skilled and experienced team of specialists uses advanced geophysical techniques, surveying, laser scanning, and 3D modeling to combine valuable underground information with BIM to create the most comprehensive and accurate design models in the industry.

Deliverables can be presented as a standalone subsurface information model or combined with our client’s BIM product using Civil 3D, Navisworks or Revit.

Services include:

  • Subsurface utility engineering mapping
  • Information modeling (SUE/SUM/SIM); as-built & post-built utility drawings
  • 3D laser scanning
  • Clash detection
  • Geotechnical risk assessment
  • Subsurface environmental investigation
  • Structures evaluation
  • Various other smart city/plant solutions involving digital-twins,
    mixed reality, IoT, and artificial intelligence
