VPS’ Design Development Department (DDD) was created to elevate the level of service to our clients by utilizing the most sophisticated 3D/CAD rendering and animation software available. This comprehensive visualization capability enables clients to better understand our company’s proposed solution to their requirements. The DDD complements our progressive approach to innovation and creativity. Our design team is composed of Industrial Designers and Architects who understand the fundamentals of shape, form and function; their creativity and technical ability enable the client to gain a unique insight into a 3D version of a concept suitable for construction. The animation represented in CAD format typically represents the actual and final product and is the starting point for converting the concept into reality.
The VPS Project Design & Engineering Department begins by establishing the required centerline geometry of the structure and modeling it in 3D using highly specialized software to define a final equilibrium shape that meets the requirements of the client. The equilibrium shape is then analyzed under various loading conditions to determine the steel, cable, and fabric requirements. The results of the computer modeling and analysis are transformed in the graphical design stages of the project into an accurate, extruded 3D model complete with actual steel and cable sizes and connections. The design drawings are then developed from the 3D model and submitted to the client for review and approval.
The Project Management Department of VPS was created to handle the ever-increasing size and value of our many projects. Project Management utilizes sophisticated organizational software to ensure that our projects are completed in the most cost-effective, timely, and efficient manner. We strive to meet or exceed expectations with every client on every project. Once a project has been contracted and submitted to the Proposal Manager, Project Management then assumes control over all aspects of the job. Project Managers create schedules, handle submittals and approvals, maintain comprehensive communication logs, and manage costs and logistics, all to ensure a projects successful completion.

With numerous construction crews operating from coast to coast, we’ve constructed countless successful projects which have resulted in lasting partnerships with our clients.

VPS is proud to offer the ultimate in service and maintenance. Whether general cosmetic repairs or an upgrade or overhaul of an existing structure, our in-house specialty construction experts can handle every aspect of the job. Additionally, inspection and maintenance programs are customizable options that can be integrated into the scope definition of any project.
