Virtual Construction Services
Our Virtual Construction Services provide an extensive range of capabilities for clients across the globe.
3D Construction Modeling
We provide 3D BIM or Construction modeling from concept through construction drawings. This allows our clients to estimate jobs and identify constructability issues and furnish MEP routing, conflict resolutions and coordination reports to design teams. As the drawings proceed to 100% Release or Issued for Construction documents, our clients are equipped to issue shop drawings to subcontractors and to commence material fabrication and construction almost immediately.
We have a large team of 3D Rendering and 3D Animation specialists who provide a wealth of services and benefits for Rendering and Animation:
- Creative illustration
- High-end technical and software skills
- Quick and expedited turn-around times
- Expertise in various 3D Rendering software applications
- Training to take full advantage of the latest technologies
- Large database and library of electronic images, 3D furniture, objects and accessories

Keeping up with revisions and design changes can be extremely challenging for fast-track jobs, jobs that require significant changes and jobs with demanding schedules regardless of difficult design-related adjustments.
For Change Management, Prothious provides highly trained team members who keep up with design changes, identify material, fabrication and labor costs and provide accurate paperwork on a timely basis. As these staff members focus only on Change Management for your project, they ensure that you track and collect for extra work and change orders.
Project Management and On-Site Resources
For both large and small jobs, Prothious can deliver resources and immediate customer service around the globe.
For some projects, we offer resources for secondment or the on-site placement of a Prothious architect, draftsman, engineer, detailer, designer or project manager. These resources can provide on-site engineering and technical capabilities, coordinate with other trades, organize contractors, interact with architects and engineers, orchestrate procurement, manage and track revisions and help with shop scheduling and field coordination.
The team at Prothious has pioneered the overseas engineering business since its inception in the mid-1990s. Within the lifetime of this industry, our accomplished engineers and staff members have worked on an expansive range of projects, from unique and complex to large and industrial, have completed more work than the competition and have successfully executed the most sought-after jobs.
Beyond talented professionals, however, Prothious continually develops innovative systems and a collaborative culture to ensure our competitive edge. Our internal systems and processes enable our talent to produce timely, accurate work on a consistent basis. Additionally, we maintain an open, productive culture that keeps all team members in the information loop.
We are acutely responsive to client needs, ask the right questions at the right time, and facilitate smooth communication flow throughout an entire project. Ultimately, our unique culture and internal systems allow us to deliver a consistent, on time, high-quality product for every project.
