Description

VDC provides a ton of information to all parties downstream, but who provides the VDC department with information such as submittals and a clean material matrix? PMs? A dedicated Precon Department? This roundtable session will discuss what contractors are doing to get the necessary information to their VDC team on time. It will also discuss scheduling and coordination so that submittals are sent well before jobsite construction.
