What You Get With Your Subscription

Get the most current and reliable information available about projects in the earliest stages of planning and development. We track projects from “dirt through design” so you don’t have to, including economic development initiatives, land acquisitions, Requests for Proposal and/or Qualifications, planning and zoning requests, Site Plan Reviews, and projects in design.

We don’t believe in “harvesting” information from other sources. Our philosophy is that reliable information can only be obtained from personal sources. That’s why we’ve spent years developing trusting relationships with developers, business leaders, design firms and government officials to make sure we bring you legitimate, verified business leads.

The VBX team follows each project continuously from the moment we learn about it until it is ready for bidding AND we confirm every fact so you aren’t chasing dead ends. We tell you what we know, when we know it, including obstacles as well opportunities.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to design, need to get your product specified into a design, or just want to know what’s coming up, VIRTUAL CONCEPT & DESIGN is the solution.
