Breakthrough in Prefabrication - Design-to-Fabrication-to-Installation


Imagine prefabricating hundreds of telescopic steel frames in just a few hours. Imagine doing so with the highest level of precision and quality, cost savings, and in the most sustainable manner possible. Windover Construction, Howick, Autodesk technology Center and Strucsoft collaborated to make this a reality for a challenging historic preservation project cutting time and cost by more than 50%. This approach utilizes Revit Data, mixed reality for assembly, and laser scanning to power manufacturing processes. Automation technologies promise increased labor efficiency, reduced waste, and enhanced customization. Together we will explore the latest design-to-fabrication workflows. including a ground-breaking automated steel roll-forming system that produces telescopic framing for interior walls and ceilings. complete frames that can be adjustable in any direction, pre-assembled, compressed for easy maneuver, then quickly expanded, and adjusted on site for a precise fit every time.
