How many times does your construction project not turn out as pictured in your head? Is the idea on paper really working for the team and the end user? This presentation will focus on different techniques used to visualize and construct final products through the effective use of physical mockups, 3D digital media and actual construction processes to reflect the team’s desired outcome. Learn how using these processes lead to increased customer satisfaction, reduction of rework and quality incidents, a reduction in safety related incidents and a better net margin for the owner, architect and contractor.

 Learning Outcomes
