What is Industrialized Construction?

In a world where rapid urbanization and technology go hand in hand, construction methods constantly evolve and technology disruptions are occurring daily. One increasing development is industrialized construction (IC) where there is a convergence of manufacturing and AEC.

But what exactly is it?

Industrialized construction refers to the application of manufacturing techniques in the building process. This method allows for building components' design, fabrication, and assembly to be carried out in a controlled factory environment rather than on-site.

Why is it Important?

  1. Efficiency:
    Through the use of prefabricated modules, structures can be assembled in less time compared to traditional construction methods. This could be the needed change to respond to the increasing housing crisis.
  2. Quality Control:
    A controlled environment ensures standardized quality, reducing the likelihood of errors and rework.
  3. Sustainability:
    The process allows for precision in material use, significantly…
