Director of Virtual Construction: Becca Frangipane Joins Russell’s Ranks
Sep 07, 2017
Russell is excited to announce the newest addition to our team,
Director of Virtual Construction
. Becca will be providing leadership to take Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) at Russell to the next level.
What is VDC and why is it important?
VDC is an accumulation of technology based tools and processes to help analyze and visualize construction that is becoming increasingly prevalent in the industry. At Russell, we believe VDC methods provide our teams with great opportunities to proactively plan, communicate, and problem solve the unique challenges each project brings in ways we haven’t done before. Throughout the entire construction process, development to design to construction to operations, we will bring together the Building Information Models (BIM) from all trade partners with our standard construction means and methods to analyze the data and visualize multiple scenarios throughout the project’s lifespan in regards to spatial planning, quantities, scheduling, operations and maintenance.
What value does this mean for our Owners?
We tailor fit the VDC needs for each project to gather more detailed quantities for better pricing, visualize the construction phases and schedule to reduce time, and find the most efficient solutions to problems before they reach the field, reducing risk and rework.
Who is Rebecca?
Prior to joining the Russell team, Becca served in a similar role for a large general contractor, where she previously was a key team member tasked with advancing and developing VDC processes. Becca is highly respected in the industry and has been invited to complete onsite beta testing for Autodesk six times including in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and China. Becca has also frequently shared her knowledge and passion for VDC through speaking engagements with such notable organizations as Bluebeam, Master Builders of Iowa, Autodesk and Synchro.
