Top Innovative Technologies that are Reshaping Construction

Construction jobsites in 2023 resemble those in 1923, with manual bricklaying, paper blueprints, and scaffold towers. At $12 trillion, architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) is one of the biggest industries in the world, but historically it has been among the slowest to digitize and innovate. This, however, is changing fast: strong demand for infrastructure, a […]

20 Tips for Improving Safety in Your Fabrication Shop

Prefabrication, also known as modular or off-site construction, is an innovative method of building that involves constructing components off-site in a controlled environment and transporting components to the construction jobsite for assembly. This approach is helping to transform the construction industry, offering many benefits. Below are 20 tips for improving safety in your Fabrication shop. […]

How BIM is crucial for thriving with prefabrication!

Prefabrication and modular construction have helped advance the construction industry and continuing to do so, but by using BIM contractors are taking it to another level. Designing and producing building components offsite dates back over a century, but these methods demonstrate tremendous success on several levels thanks to modern technologies. BIM plays a significant role in […]
