Centre for Lean and Virtual Construction

Built environment stakeholders can now simulate construction processes and immerse themselves in a 3D walkthrough at Centre for Lean and Virtual Construction - the first-of-its-kind experiential facility located at the BCA Academy.

The Centre will equip built environment professionals with process change skills based on Lean Construction and virtual construction concepts. It will also facilitate VDC processes via BIM to encourage project teams to build digitally before actual construction. Such “full-dress rehearsals” conducted in a virtual environment can enhance collaboration and integration during the project delivery process, which can improve construction productivity by up to 20%.

The Centre houses various experiential zones that will show how BIM, VDC and lean principles can strengthen project performance and productivity. The various experiential zones within the Centre provide unique focus areas and opportunities for an immersive experience.
