a new direction
Driving the New Era of Digital Construction
In order to adhere to new regulations and achieve sustainable construction, AEC collaborators must:
- Design 'Cradle-to-Cradle' Systems
- Reduce Waste
- Source Local, Energy-Efficient Materials
- Analyze the Full Lifecycle Impact
- Build more Efficiently
To meet customer expectations while scalably delivering optimal occupant experiences, construction teams must:
- Design Sustainable Spaces
- Support Customization
- Deliver Affordable Housing
- Develop Faster than Ever
- Adapt to Unique Requirements at each Site
In order to ensure time to build, supply chain resilience and business continuity, construction industry leaders are challenged to:
- Stay Relevant in a Changing Industry
- Digitize Trade-Based and Regional Knowledge
- Adapt to Unique Requirements on each Site
- Simulate and Optimize Downstream Processes
- Minimize Waste, Errors, and Omissions
THE SHIFT TO DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE & ASSEMBLY
Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is how innovators will rise to meet unprecedented construction industry challenges. Owner-operators, urban planners, architects, engineers and building product manufacturers are cultivating a clear competitive advantage through DfMA methods.
The 4 fundamental shifts enabling DfMA to take hold in construction are:
- From off-site construction to automated manufacturing
- From trade-based installations to modularized assemblies
- From static design data to continuous integration
- From customization to configuration
