Prefab & BIM Technology Lead to Fast-Track Efficiency
Prefabricated construction is definitely having a moment — and it stands to reason.
Also known as off-site or modular construction, this building method is the practice of bringing together components of a structure in a factory and then transporting the complete assemblies to the construction site where the structure is located.

Leveraging BIM in Prefab Construction
Vertex BD Startup and Implementation — Blog 1: Introduction to BIM and What It Can Do for Your Company
This blog series will walk AEC organizations and other interested parties through the decision-making process for selecting and implementing a BIM platform. I will shed some light on why so many companies are implementing BIM, and I will also highlight some of the best use cases for BIM and share some of our customers’ success stories.
Software integrations increase the profitability of investments in prefabrication production systems
If not enough time is allocated for software integration, there may be problems and delays in the system setup, and production may run slower than expected or even stop completely.
In this final blog in my series about DfMA, I look toward the future and discuss three new technologies that will both impact the construction industry and evolve alongside it in the years and decades to come: next-generation building information modeling (BIM), artificial intelligence (AI) and production automation.
