R & D
CDM Smith's research and development program harnesses the creativity of our employees to push industry boundaries. CDM Smith partners with clients, non-profit research foundations, universities and vendors to contribute to more than 25 groundbreaking water, wastewater, water reuse, environmental, energy and transportation projects each year.
CDM Smith is using virtual design and construction (VDC) to connect designers, constructors, owners and operators with the right tools to bring projects to life before a shovel even hits the ground. With VDC, CDM Smith is helping clients to manage change, encourage collaboration and maintain goals throughout the entire project lifecycle.
CDM Smith uses innovative technologies to deliver smarter, better connected and more integrated infrastructure. We work to pair clients with the right tools to overcome barriers, eliminate costs and strengthen relationships on projects of all sizes.
