By harnessing the power of the Building Information Model (BIM) and leveraging 65 years of experience, we blend science + art to achieve accurate estimates. 90%+ of our jobs are delivered at or below target.
TVD is an upgraded alternative to “Value Engineering." In a market where it is increasingly expensive to build, Herrero offers customers the benefits of pursuing a TVD process to achieve your scope, design and budget desires.
We realize the highest value for you and your project by working with our owners, designers and project partners from the concept phase, using our Value Integration Process. The earlier we start, the better the results.
Herrero VIP is the synthesis of Lean practices from manufacturing for use in construction. It is about aligning stakeholder values, developing metrics to track effectiveness, identifying what is not working, and streamlining workflows to correct issues. The beauty of the system is its scalability in use from small tasks to mega projects.
Developing a Lean community is key to the success of everyone working together intelligently to realize successful projects. Herrero provides training to clients, designers and trade partners to share concepts behind thinking and practicing Lean. We have trained thousands of people and organizations, in the US and abroad.
VIP aligns seemingly disparate values and needs and mathematically calculates the proper order to address issues, so all values and needs are met. Participating in this process of critical thinking early in the project is transformative for the project (and people). Importantly, it leads to successful project outcomes, measured in profit and timely delivery.
100% of our IPD projects have been delivered on or below budget and at or ahead of schedule. This was the result of a project culture and contracts where collaboration is rewarded, and where an ethos of project-first is always nurtured. Success also requires full commitment to a highly detailed BIM model.
Herrero has always been on the forefront of Virtual Design and Construction. On IPD projects, the Building Information Model is a virtual "campfire" around which the entire team gathers to maximize coordination and significantly reduce risk. The better the model, the better the project outcomes.
With Lean tools like the Last Planner System, we work back from the desired result to plan our work. This highly effective strategy keeps all trades and team members on track and focused to meet each milestone. Additional tools include vPlanner, Risk & Opportunity Log, BIM and Big Room management.
We use BIM for QA/ QC, to efficiently and expeditiously perform work in the field. Layout for all floor plates, plumbing cores and MEP overhead anchor layouts all benefit from BIM Coordination. Total Station layout brings BIM into the working environment to speed up these activities, with the precision needed to deliver the QA desired by all trades.
While BIM and VDC are used interchangeably they are in fact different. Where BIM is the 3 model, VDC builds on the 3D (building model), and adds the elements of 4D (scheduling), 5D(estimating), 6D (sustainability), 7D (facility management applications).
There is a broad range of tools used to support integrated design efforts. Tools include Revit, AutoCad, BIM, and Navisworks. Navisworks is a model aggregator and analyzation tool for constructability and clash detection). Aggregates Revit (AE), Tekla (S), AutoCad, etc.
This training will help you understand what Lean for construction is and how to implement it to deliver value on your projects. After years of teaching groups in Study Action Teams and implementing Lean in organizations, our trainers give you their full attention and share their hard-earned wisdom. At the end of training, you’ll receive Lean Certification if you have fulfilled all the requirements.
Herrero has been an innovative company for decades. We were early adopters of Integrated Project Delivery for large scale construction projects. We now provide advice on how to methodically and successfully implement IPD for a wide range of building types. By doing this, we aim to improve the design and construction industry as a whole. This benefits everyone.
Herrero offers organizations training in the internationally awarded processes for collaboration and coordination in the Building Information Model. The model is now maturing into a source of data and team decisions. Learn to leverage the power of machine learning, big data and Industry 4.0 to significantly improving productivity, quality and sustainability in construction.
