Target costing design has continually proven to be one of the most powerful benefits of leveraging Vico Office for BIM. In this episode of Building with Trimble, Matt Zwetzig, of Vega Architecture in Denver, shows their preferred approach to the target costing workflow.
Within the session you’ll learn how Vico Office can be used to set target pricing with even the lowest levels of design concept; once set, target costs serve as a continual benchmark that can be tracked against each and every iteration of the design. You’ll learn how setting target costs provides for a more predictable project in terms of meeting program requirements and project budget. Afterwards, attendees will have a firm grasp on how to replicate a similar workflow on their own projects by using Vico Office’s model-based estimating approach.
Watch the recorded webinar to gain hands-on advice about how to make 5D BIM a success on your next project!

With the addition of the Trimble R8s to our building construction lineup, contractors can now tap into the convenience of satellite positioning while still using the same proven workflows of Trimble Field Link. When vertical accuracy does not require sub-centimeter tolerance, GNSS technology is the smart way to expedite layout and QA/QC tasks. Unlike existing total station workflows with GNSS, all you need is a clear view of the sky to get the positions you need on site. Eliminate dozens of trips back to the tripod and repeated set-ups and break-downs.
Watch the recorded webinar where we introduce the Trimble R8s and Trimble Field Link software to see if GNSS technology has a place on your job site.

Everyone knows that Building Construction is a tough business. At Trimble, we've been focused on making substantive improvements to workflows with improved collaboration. Effective implementation of round trip workflows (Office to Field to Office) requires connected solutions, coordinated teams, and anytime access. For layout tasks, as-built assessments and structural components, Trimble is streamlining workflows with seamless, real time updates to reduce rework and improve overall team efficiency.
Today Trimble Connect, combined with Trimble office and field solutions, is simplifying the process of connecting teams, coordinating efforts and improving timely access to important project data.
In this edition of Building With Trimble, we'll show that reducing or eliminating manual data transfer is not only feasible today, it's a mandate for many progressive construction firms today. Watch the webinar to see how your round trip workflow might be transformed in the near future.

For years, construction companies have been implementing an ever-increasing array of technology to plan and build safer and smarter. While all this technology has helped companies to run more efficiently and effectively, the full potential of the accumulated data continues to go unrealized. Scattered across various spreadsheets, systems, databases and applications, access to and integration of this wealth of information remains expensive, slow and cumbersome.
Lantern Data Systems is a Trimble partner that is helping customers to bring projects and information together to enable more informed, data-driven decisions. With single, intuitive platform, Harnessing the power of project data, Lantern is enabling contractors to be more competitive and ultimately, save time and money.

This is the first in a series of webinars highlighting the many ways Trimble Prolog integrates with cross-functional business systems to improve efficiency and reduce rework.
Because controlling costs is such a critical element in managing large projects, many progressive project managers are seeking ways to automate the flow of cost data throughout the project lifecycle from concept all the way to completion. In this installment of Building With Trimble, we uncover how automated data connections between feasibility, cost estimating and project controls eliminate many manual steps, reduces project risk and transforms project teams' overall productivity.
