[INFOGRAPHIC] Deconstructing Lean Construction

By Akio

The adoption of Lean construction by the AEC industry, and Lean drivers, benefits, and challenges are illustrated in this Dassault Systèmes infographic.

Given the biggest challenge to implementing Lean construction is a lack of awareness, please share this infographic with your network:

BIM in Façade Design: Real World Examples

By Akio

The following post is an excerpt from Technological Changes Brought by BIM to Façade Design.

Phoenix International Media Center

Phoenix International Media Center, located at the southwest corner of Beijing Chaoyang Park, with gross floor area of 65,000 square meters and building height of 55 meters, was designed by Beijing Institute of Architectural Design.

The overall design logic is to wrap the main, independently-maintainable space with an ecologically-functional shell, rendering a building-in-building form. There is some interesting shared and public space in between, so as to meet the purpose of public involvement and experience and environmental protection.

In addition to media office and studio production facilities, there is also lots of interactive experience space open to the public, so as to reflect the unique open business concept of Phoenix Media.

To show the uniqueness, culture, and rationality of technology and cost, the architects creatively proposed for the outer surface of the center a flake-type, unit-combined façade fabrication of which either two of the 5,180 units are different from each other.

Barclays Center

Barclays Center, covering an area of 675,000 feet, designed by SHoP Architects, reflects the balance between unique shape and good performance.

Its complex, weather-resistant steel and glass façade design, a main part of arena design, was fulfilled by SHoP Construction (SC) cooperating with a façade contractor.

To ensure the “grille” division of the weather-resistant steel can accurately show the building shape, SC introduced an integrated construction process directly oriented to assembly and applied digital fabrication technology to assemble and deliver 900 large unit panels by sequence, which consisted of 12,000 weather-resistant steel grilles of different sizes.

The 3 Building Parts Best Suited for Prefabrication

By Patrick

During a house building. Civil Engineering in GermanyPrefabrication is an important tool for those practicing industrialized construction.

But not everything on a project is delivered more efficiently with prefabrication. Some components or elements of a building are more suited for prefab than others.

Best Suited for #Prefab in #AEC”

Standardized building systems, complex assemblies, and repetitive subcomponents of a building are three examples of applications likely to be successful with prefab.

1. “Unnoticed” Building Systems

Commodity assemblies – parts mostly required by code – often go unnoticed.

These building systems don’t make or break the finished project, and so they are more price-sensitive than other systems.

Fire stairs, elevators, plumbing, heating and cooling, and ADA-compliant spaces are examples of building systems that could easily be prefabricated, ordered directly by the owner, and delivered to the worksite ready to be installed.

2. Complex Systems

High-end, intricate elements of a building, for example a unique façade system or other stand-alone component, may be more successfully installed if panelized and prefabricated off the job site.

3. Components of a Building

Repetitive subcomponents can make up 75% of a project in some types of buildings.

For example, patient rooms in hospitals, guest bathrooms and kitchenettes in hotels, classrooms in schools, and labs in research facilities are subcomponents that are replicated over and over again within the building.

Components that make up certain building types can be built offsite more efficiently at scale, and installed on site more quickly.

When planning a project, don’t assume that prefab is an all or nothing proposition. Some parts of a building are much better suited to off-site fabrication than others.

These prefab components will end up being delivered in less time, and at much higher quality, with as much as 30% savings.
