Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) Intern

The VDC Department supports the jobsites and preconstruction department implementing technology. We also support the jobsite staff with setting up the digital documents (construction drawings), iPads, and other technology applications. VDC Specialists can be found either on the jobsites they are supporting or the main office, so the intern will be exposed to both locations and personnel. The intern will also assist with marketing and preconstruction in development of proposals creating site logistics plans and images that portray the technology we use on projects. The intern is not limited to learning only about what the VDC department does but will have an overview of the construction process along with how VDC is implemented.
