Eric Cylwik is the Modeling Engineer for Sundt Construction’s Heavy Civil division. Before working exclusively for the heavy civil division, Eric focused on adapting BIMs from the office to the field for Sundt’s building and concrete divisions. This included creating fabrication quality BIMs, coordinating projects, and developing a process to send layout information directly to survey equipment. He now focuses on creating VDC models that highlight technology’s capability to enhance the way construction is performed in the field for horizontal construction. Focusing on infrastructure construction modeling, he has been able to leverage intelligent parametric modeling to create construction-quality bridge, road, and trench models that are used for survey surfaces, machine control, quantity take offs, utility coordination, constructability reviews, and visualizations. He is a certified professional in several vertical and horizontal VDC/BIM software packages.
Cylwik also is a member of the “Site Information Modeling Advisory Committee” for the United States Army Core of Engineers drafting contract language for horizontal VDC on USACE projects.
