In a previous article, we have explained what Prefabrication and Modular Design within the Construction and Property Development Industries are. Today we are going to take a very brief overview of Technology for Prefabrication and Modular Design. We are going to answer the following question: how can Technology enhance Prefabrication and Modular Design? Keep reading and find out how Technology and Prefabrication and Modular Design can help you to #ONEUPYOURBUSINESS!

HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY ENHANCE PREFABRICATION AND MODULAR DESIGN?

As we explained in an earlier article, Prefabrication and Modular Design offers benefits such as quick construction time, sustainability, and improved safety. Whilst these elements are important, it is also important to discuss how Technology and Prefabrication and Modular Design work together to deliver and produce buildings like residential and commercial buildings. Below we talk about how Technology can enhance Prefabrication and Modular Design:

  • Helping quicker construction time: emerging technologies such as robotics, 3D Imaging, and drones are becoming increasingly popular because they can support the design and development of modular construction in a more cost-effective, sustainable, and faster manner than traditional processes. As well as, in controlled factories, measurements and sizes can be cut accurately due to the software used to cut and move the different pieces of each module. New technologies and modular construction combined can allow projects to be done and completed around 30% more quickly than traditional builds
  • Improving engineered buildings: using Building Information Modelling (BIM) can allow you to assess energy performances and discover cost-effective measures. It can also, when utilised with 3D design ensure that the building is appropriate for the intended location and design requirements
  • Cost-effective: applying construction processes such as offsite construction, manufactured building elements, and 3D printing have the potential for reducing waste, emissions and material demand helping to save on material costs along with construction finances as prefabricated construction can offer a variety of budgets and pricing
  • Reducing waste in design: using technology and construction processes such as 3D printing in modular buildings can help produce less waste and lower carbon footprint. With sub-assemblies being created off-site under factory-controlled conditions the precision software uses set amounts of materials required across the various modules of the building, reducing waste, and enabling extra materials to be recycled in-house
