To truly appreciate prefab construction and all its benefits, you have to understand how prefab structures come together. We take a closer look at the two different types of prefab systems, as well as the pros and cons of each.
Prefabrication can significantly reduce the timeline on construction schedules. This reduced timeline lowers labor costs, keeps on-site overhead costs in check, and allows stakeholders to move on to their next project more quickly.
Brisbane-based Australian Institute of Advanced Studies to offer Vertex BD training as part of their engineering curriculum.
For decades, construction has fallen short in the areas of efficiency and performance. But today, thanks to a recent shift toward off-site manufacturing-style production, there’s an opportunity for construction processes to speed up — an advancement that will save a significant amount of time and money.
Vertex Systems invited Estonian wood builders to Finland to learn about Nordic CLT and modular construction.
Recent modular builds are speeding up project timelines by 20–50% while saving construction costs.
BIM technology is the backbone of what’s known as Building Lifecycle Management — the integrated coordination, organization, and control of all the information that pertains to a building project.
Read how the information saved in a BIM model can greatly impact the operations of a building long after construction is complete.
Did you know that the construction industry is responsible for a jaw-dropping 50% of the solid waste generated worldwide? Software companies are doing their part to tackle this problem.
Construction is one of the most dangerous and hazardous industries worldwide — even with a significant drop in the rate of injuries over the last 20 years. Fortunately, there are new advancements being made every day to improve construction-site safety.
Many areas of the construction industry could see a 5–10x productivity boost by moving to a manufacturing-style production system like the methods used in prefab construction.
One single building project can involve designers, engineers, architects, and subcontractors spending hundreds of hours drafting the plans and executing the build. And while this type of collaboration has the potential to take a project to the next level, it can also be problematic without proper coordination.
By providing the contractors and subcontractors with a higher level of detail, BIM software ensures that errors are caught, expectations are aligned, and cost estimates and schedules are accurate.
BIM technology allows you to see the entire structure from start to finish, before you ever break ground – a benefit that can save you time and money on your construction project.
Precise cost estimations to help you make the best financial decisions for your construction project.
If you want to stay on budget, you have to stay on schedule. But with so many moving parts and inevitable changes along the way, it can be difficult not to veer off track with both your time and your expenses.
Blame Johannes Gutenberg. His 15th century printing press essentially sparked the world’s love for the printed word. In 1455; his first production of a set of 200 illustrated Latin Bibles launched Europe into the original information age. Fast forward to the 21st...
It’s difficult to build towards something impossible to envision. The truth of the matter is we do not have a crystal ball; we cannot predict the future. We can look to the past for lessons and trends, but we must rely upon dreams, visions, and educated guesses for...
