A culture of innovation drives everything we do at Ҵýapp Construction.

Our goal is to provide the absolute best construction experience, utilizing the latest technology and techniques to maximize value for our clients.

Our Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) service provides the rare opportunity to walk through a 3-D model of a finished building — at the system level — before ground is broken.

Not only does seeing the “build before the build” help clients visualize the end result, it helps our team and partners to better collaborate. Redundancies, clashes, and other inefficiencies are detected before construction begins, saving time and money along the way.

We regularly adapt new ideas gleaned from the frontlines, aka our team members on the job site. In addition, our Continuous Improvement Council, Construction Excellence Team, and peer groups provide innovative ideas and solutions to allow us to better service our clients.

The VDC service:

  • Ensures greater certainty regarding cost and scheduling
  • Avoids costly redesigns and rework by digitally evaluating scenarios in advance
  • Identifies risks and safety hazards in a timely manner
  • Provides transparency for all stakeholders, including vital document management
  • Increases communication
  • Provides aerial imagery from our FAA-licensed drone pilot and offers up-to-the-minute updates on how projects are progressing

Digital Modeling

Ҵýapp deploys a variety of technology to streamline processes and costs. One example was the use of 3-D laser scanning playing a pivotal role in renovations of a challenging structure, a 41,000-square-foot, multi-story industrial building that had been expanded about eight times over decades.

“Getting the building scanned was critical. Field surveying would have been time-consuming and an additional expense. I was impressed with the accuracy and detail of the scan. We were then able to use the scan to optimize our architectural model, and then send it back to Ҵýapp to share with the construction partners. It was a real team effort.”

Tom Matejka, Lead Architectural Design Specialist, Strang, Inc.

“Having accurate digital modeling streamlined the design process and ensured there were no surprises or costly change orders. The workflow was predictable, efficient, and remained on schedule.”

Jake Evans, Project Manager, Ҵýapp Construction

Our VDC team often captures drone footage of an existing site, then creates detailed digital drawings using available specs, and overlays digital models on top of the footage. 

We believe in harnessing technology to better serve our clients.
