Optimizing Design and Construction with Off-Site Components and 3D Modeling

There are numerous challenges facing the construction industry today, but the building process can be optimized with a collaborative design process leveraging advanced components like floors, roofs, and wall systems. An off site construction approach empowers designers to embed off site methods and solutions into the design phase. Harnessing the power of 3D design and building information modeling (BIM) can also help to overcome industry challenges by providing a streamlined, more efficient process.

This course will explore how adopting the design-make-build process, advanced components, and 3D technology creates a common ground that guides each design decision and optimizes construction.
