Webinar: Future Building Fabrication: How Prefabrication Will Integrate with Emerging Technologies to Shape Construction

September 27, 2016

Presented by: Jerrold Wang and Arij van Berkel

Description

Prefabrication is now opening a multi-billion dollar global opportunity in construction. Even though prefabrication delivers shorter construction periods and generates less waste than conventional onsite construction, it was not dominant in the construction sector in the past. However, recent technology innovations (like design software and 3D printing) and macroeconomic factors (like the cost structure of construction projects) all favor accelerating growth of prefabrication. How is this changing the value chain and who can benefit from these developments? How will these changes affect the role of construction firms, engineering companies and architects and creates opportunities for new participants, like software companies and OEMs? This webinar will discuss: • Emerging technologies which enable prefabrication to balance scalability, flexibility, and cost • Economic factors which now make prefabrication more attractive to the construction market • The influence of rising prefabrication to the construction industry value chain
