Integrating fabrication and building information modeling could change the entire industry. Unfortunately architects typically don't begin working with fabricators until late in the design process and therefore miss the opportunity to fully exploit the potential. The case for ongoing collaboration across domains is made repeatedly throughout the book yet this is rarely what happens on real projects.
I highly recommend this book and Deke Smith's Building Information Modeling: A Strategic Implementation Guide for Architects, Engineers, Constructors, and Real Estate Asset Managers. Both books make clear that integrated building information modeling and fabrication are very complementary and much more about iterative process engineering than any specific software.
I really love it.
-I think from now the prefabrication concept and modular concept will be increasing in the Engineering and construction business.
-I think yhis will be useful for designer, engineer and architect.
