Vico Office delivers a different way of working with BIM models. Used for much more than visualization, Vico Office extends the basic 3D model with constructability analysis and coordination, quantity takeoff, 4D location-based scheduling and production control, and 5D estimating.
Vico Document Controller compares 2D drawing set versions and 3D model versions to identify changes/deletions/additions. And for the first time, users can compare coordinated 3D models to the 2D contract documents for the final accuracy check.
Vico Office works out-of-the-box with popular BIM authoring tools such as Graphisoft ArchiCAD, Autodesk Revit, and Tekla Structures. New in Release 4 are publishers for AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP. Vico Office also includes additional importers for Google SketchUp, CAD Duct, 3D DWG, and IFC files
Vico Takeoff Manager derives construction-caliber quantities by location from BIM models; these quantities by location power more accurate schedules and estimates.
Vico LBS Manager is an organized approach to dividing the project into work locations. Location-based planning and management ensures that trade crews flow smoothly from prerequisite to successor tasks without interference. Locations defined in LBS Manager also yield quantities by location for use in scheduling and procurement.
Vico Schedule Planner creates construction schedules by using BIM model elements and associating them with tasks and the corresponding materials, resources, and labor; all of which are optimized by location.
Vico Production Controller is used in the build phase. Planning the schedule is only half the battle - the other half is managing on-site production. Near real-time production updates from the site using Vico Production Controller enable forward-looking schedule forecasts so problems are flagged with ample time for remedial action.
Vico 4D Manager is a 4D simulation presentation tool that provides rich 3D visualization of the project timeline to the extended construction team.
The ability to view the takeoff items in the context of the 3D model, and the bi-directional link between the views, gives you clear feedback, improves team communication, and gives you the confidence that no quantities are missed. Since quantity takeoff is a live view, newly published and activated model versions result in automatically updated quantities.
Vico Layout Manager maps critical points in the virtual model to their corresponding physical points on the jobsite, speeding installation and eliminating costly rework.
Vico Office Client is the cornerstone of the Vico Office Suite. Here model versions are managed, information is shared across the team, and an inline reporting engine pulls information from all departments to deliver constructability reports, cost- and resource-loaded schedules, proposed design changes, cost estimates, cash flow reports, and other customizable reports
Vico Cost Planner is a powerful model-based cost estimating solution. Based on the concept of Target Cost Planning, Vico Cost Planner provides an environment for an evolving cost estimate that readily compares one version to another and any version to the original Target Cost Plan.
Vico Cost Explorer is the first model-based budgeting application that allows the extended project team to visually understand which aspects of the project are contributing to changes in cost. Pouring over rows and rows of spreadsheet data is a thing of the past.
Accuracy, productivity and confidence. These are the traits of successful general contractors that win business and keep projects moving along a predictable trajectory.
One of the first systems to truly leverage a company’s project-cost history, Trimble’s Modelogix cost-modeling tool ties seamlessly to data from any leading cost-tracking solution—including MS Excel, WinEst and many others.
The world’s first Windows-based estimating software for the AEC industry, WinEst serves the complete range of industry niches and customers—from regional single-office builders to global general contractors, facility owners, specialty contractors, public/government agencies and more.
