Danielle Dy Buncio, CEO of VIATechnik, joins Stanford Real Estate Council

CHICAGO, Illi., Sep. 23, 2019 /VIATechnik/ — Danielle Dy Buncio, Co-founder and CEO of VIATechnik, a construction technology firm disrupting the AEC industry through innovative VDC consulting, implementation and education, has been accepted into the Stanford Alumni Real Estate Council (SREC). The SREC is an invitation-only group of the “Top 100” Stanford alumni inside and outside the real estate industry dedicated to providing a forum for innovative discourse on real estate, place making, and the built environment. As part of the Stanford Professionals in Real Estate (SPIRE), Stanford’s largest alumni group, the SREC is a vehicle to engage these senior industry leaders through best-in-class real estate programs, networking events, and professional development. This active exchange of ideas benefits of those members, the University, and the broader Stanford real estate alumni network. 

Dy Buncio graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in civil engineering and has maintained a close tie to Stanford since then. In 2015, VIATechnik was part of the inaugural group of “start-ups” to join Stanford Center for Integrated Facilities and Engineering (CIFE). This membership was designed to develop and implement innovative ideas through smaller, more nimble companies that could adopt them faster than larger firms. Most recently, VIATechnik is leading the VDC course offered through Stanford with CIFE director Martin Fischer. In joining the diverse SREC community, VIATechnik will further build this relationship by bringing bleeding-edge insights into the AEC industry to bear on the broader issues of global real estate. 

With a seat at this table, Dy Buncio will help determine the future of the real estate industry and its impact on the built environment at all levels, from the individual user to the city and beyond. As of 2017, the members of SREC have investments exceeding $1.7 trillion and more than 6.4 billion square feet under management, 1.1 billion square feet of which was developed between 2012 and 2017. They are therefore uniquely positioned to help effect change globally. By forging new partnerships and creating dialogues within the SREC community, Dy Buncio can continue to expand upon VIATechnik’s mission of transforming the analog world of design and construction into a digital platform, enabling efficient design, industrialized construction, and a digital real estate portfolio. In so doing, the VIATechnik team believes that the world’s housing and infrastructural challenges of the world can be solved, delivering spaces that nurture life, commerce, and relationships.
