Center for Integrated Facility Engineering

Print view

CIFE is a collaborative research effort between the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford, and practitioners who are leaders as facility owners and managers, architects, engineers, builders, software firms and construction information providers. In partnership with its industrial members, the mission of CIFE is to be the world's premier academic research center for virtual design and construction (VDC) for capital facility projects. VDC is the use of multi-disciplinary performance models of design-construction projects, including the product (i.e., facilities), work processes and organization of the design-construction-operation team to support business objectives.
