Healthcare architects, contractors and owners are shifting their paradigm and increasingly moving towards modular design and prefabrication, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Design website.
The shift is allowing for:
• Better building information models. Prefabrication requires architects and consultants to maintain better building information models (BIM) because subcontractor trades need a model to fabricate components.
• Modular designs and standardization. Departmental plans focused on operational efficiency will become the standard, helping lessen the complexity of the BIM and eliminating costly customization.
Prefabrication also improves efficiency because it helps accelerate schedules and wastes less material.See the latest posts on our homepage
