Theme 4 – Sustainable Construction Technologies and Practices
Project T4-1 – Enhanced Factory-based Construction for Wood Buildings
PI: Mohamed Al-Hussein
The quest for efficiency in the field of building construction has led to the emergence of industrialized, off-site construction. However, in North America, there is an over-reliance on primitive computer-aided design (CAD) tools rather than on building information modelling (BIM). This sub-project is expected to develop novel solutions for best-practices leading to improved efficiency of building design for prefabricated wood buildings through the innovative application of BIM and knowledge modelling.
