BDS VirCon - Steel Detailing, Rebar Detailing, Virtual Construction, and BIM


Steel Detailing

Using state of the art software technology with systems and procedures we produce the highest quality shop drawings and models to LOD 400 specifications for fabrication, erection and a range of Construction BIM deliverables such as: 3D Modelling. Shop Drawings, Erection Plans, Anchor Bolt Drawings, Connection Sketches, DSTV Files for Cutting & Drilling, DXF Files for Plate work, Field Bolt Lists, Project Tracking Controls, Advance Bill of Material, BIM Modelling & Clash Detection, Piping


Rebar Detailing

Our services include rebar detailing and estimating where we work directly with contractors, installers and engineers.. Our services include: Field Placement/Shop Drawings, 3D Modelling of Rebar, Connection Sketches, Bar Listing, Project Co-ordination Weight and/or Cost Change Tracking and Submitting.


Virtual Construction

We create models with real time computer aided construction simulation resulting in accurate, 3D modelling phases. We are one of the world's largest virtual construction firms and strive to remain our reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the industry. The planning, construction and productions models are all integrated into our Virtual Construction.


Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BDS VirCon is a virtual construction company where BIM processes are a vital part of our construction projects. BIM is a virtual model of a structure which shows the phyisical characteristics of a building. BIM are designed by engineers, architects and surveyors before being handed over to the contractors. BDS VirCon are BIM experts, we invest in the latest technology to consistently be industry leaders in virtual construction.

Virtual Construction : Forensic Modelling : Rebar Detailing : Steel Detailing : Model Coordination : BIM

BDS VirCon has a track-record spanning 50 years of iconic projects; with operations in six countries, it's one of the biggest and most technically advanced firms of its type in the world. We have the capacity, and technology to undertake major assignments requiring teams of modellers and detailers; and the experience to manage multiple projects across offices in different time zones against tight schedules and stringent quality standards.  

Our forte is large complex projects, with a vast track record that include the largest building in the USA, The Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas, Award winners- The Fondation Luis Vuitton in Paris, Optima Camelview Village in Phoenix, Crystal Malls, Las Vegas and  Maricopa County Court Tower in Phoenix.  In addition we have also worked on numerous industrial mega projects in the resources, power and manufacturing sectors in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.  Our data rich, parametrically perfect, digital models produce a wide variety of deliverables including: bill of materials, layouts, schedules, steel detail drawings, rebar schedules, electronic fabrication data files, project management and constructability data and reports.

Our ongoing commitment and investment in research and development has ensured our technical leadership through vast array of innovations, including our proprietary Virtual Construction process.  With this process our models often become the information centre in large construction projects, well beyond the core scope of detailing.  Primarily because our detailed models generate graphical information that is critical for a vast array of tasks such as: clash detection, logistics, schedules, quantities, costs and constructability issues - all key deliverables for Building Information Modelling (‘BIM’).



Our vision is to be the most reputable and innovative Detailing and Building Information Modelling firm globally.  To become the “go-to” firm for large, complex projects.



We develop partnerships with engineers and contractors who value our ability to contribute to the efficient and effective design, fabrication and construction of major projects through our expertise in Building Information Modelling and Detailing.

To achieve this we will:

  • Build on the culture of attracting and retaining the best people
  • Invest in the latest technology
  • Continue our ongoing commitment to research and development
  • Develop long-term client partnerships built on performance, trust and integrity
