Vinci Detail Construction Sequence™

Focusing on a key aspect of the work

A worksite detail is a view of a portion of the work at some point in the construction schedule. When “4d” precedes the term, the view extends into a viewset which may run the length of the project, or more often, for some segment of the schedule. Larger worksites may merit a number of worksite details, helping to communicate tactics on the jobsite or illustrate the construction of an individual facility. Worksite details serve to break down a complex message into manageable components, or to segregate a topic intended for one audience from general topics. The construction of ancillary facilities → or components of a complex under construction → may be described briefly by 4d worksite detail. The phasing of work is often a topic covered by 4d worksite details. User group communications and those intended for a specific trade can use worksite details to focus their attention on relevant topics. A general 4d worksite overview ⇒ may be useful as an orientation in these cases, but might be safely ignored.

Incomplete by definition

Unlike most general overviews, the worksite detail need not involve a complete “bird’s-eye view” approach; sections can be used, and some obstructions ignored for clarity. Worksite details are key in examining enabling work →, site utility tie ins →, and special issues →. Sometimes it’s warranted to take a closer look at some intricate work sequencing; worksite details do what they must to inform the audience. The most efficaceous way of producing worksite details is via an integrated digital worksite model. Worksite details can be produced though montage or by digital artistry without the use of models. The downside of these techniques include their inflexibility and potential inconsistency with the conditions presented by other imagery.

Vinci’s 4d worksite details

The Vinci Detail Construction Sequence™ has been a feature of its service since the earliest days. These are related to Vinci’s general overview visualizations, their production shared a similar evolution. Since the advent of the integrated worksite model (via the Vinci Digital Worksite™ service), Vinci DCS™ has become a more frequently produced feature of its service. Some of Vinci’s worksite details have been cited as the very reason why certain projects were won. The Vinci DCS™ is one of Vinci LLC’s most powerful tools.


Production of a worksite detail requires a directive or a need made obvious by basis documentation you provide. See the Vinci GCS™ feature page ⇒ for more information.
