Prefabrication and Offsite Manufacturing are emerging as a key enabler to affordable and sustainable building techniques for the 21st Century. With recent developments in digital tools and with the industry diversification opportunities through the transitioning of automotive skills and suppliers, Australia could be at the forefront of the move to DfMA (Design for Manufacture & Assembly), Digital Engineering & Lean Manufacturing techniques that will disrupt the global construction industry.

In this session we will look at the current state of the market in Australia and showcase the Tonsely precinct which is emerging as the logical focal point for collaboration and a Prefab Innovation Centre as an industry-led knowledge hub linked to key international players. The Centre will accelerate opportunity identification and capture by local industry.

An early initiative is the development of a prefab demonstrator home soon to be installed at Tonsley, with support from local firms, Flinders University and TAFE SA. We will present the design concept and opportunities for local fabrication of it and discuss impact on industry.

Ryan Hanlen, BUILT

Numerous apps assist in many of life’s challenges, in construction there are a number of which are readily available with various claims and features, plus their associated price tags. Sifting through these to determine the most suitable (avoiding the #best tag) can be a daunting task for those venturing into this market – without merely blindly following the flood lights from conglomerate entities. This presentation outlines the journey, from the investigative phase of several construction apps, through the assessment process and onto the implementation stage of the selected technology solutions for a live project. Following Built being engaged to deliver a coordinated/verified Facility Management enabled project, new technologies were sourced to enhance the our site staff with live data - connecting the dots from a virtual environment to the live edge.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn about the various types of construction apps available on the market. From the major players to more nimble solutions
  2. Understand the various functions the Apps from various forms deliver
  3. Review the suitability and capability in relation to a construction site/project

Aaron Maller, Parallax Team, Inc

Among all the arguments and discussions about “LOD, Data, Facilities Management,” and whatever else is trending, sometimes an important part is forgotten: Are the documents and model even accurate enough to build? In this real project case study, we will look at ways and techniques Contractors and Builders can “review and audit” design team models, and decide if they can be salvaged, or if they need to be built again (digitally) from the ground up. We will look at specific ‘gotchas’ from Design Models, and will show off some innovative modeling techniques, used in the coordination process of a $450m Sports Arena.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn how to evaluate (in less than 2 hours) if a model can be trusted/relied on/used for coordination, or if it needs to be rebuilt.
  2. Learn about some handy Dynamo Graphs (which will be made available!) that are helpful for Construction Coordination Modelling.
  3. Learn about our workflows for modelling in Revit to generate RFI’s while working with the subcontractors teams.

This presentation is a case study on BIM use on the Rod Laver Arena re-development. We will be focusing on the sub-contractors stage, what worked and what didn’t, how our approach changed from Stage 1 to Stage 2. Learn how we utilised Navisworks Clashes Detection, Navisworks Quantification, point clouds and total stations.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Sub-Contractors how to use Navisworks during the tender stage to Review, Compare and Quantify the BIM.
  2. Sub-Contractor advanced Navisworks Clash Detection set up and reporting.
  3. Sub-Contractor benefits and pit falls of Point clouds, Total stations and iPads on site.

I am going to provide you with a family improvement framework in the form of a customisable add-in. We will setup the necessary add-in files and I will instruct in the skills to setup lists and xml files to store your companies default family properties.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify options available through Revit Add-in customisation to clean, parameterise and rename your content.
  2. Fine-tune Revit Add-in code to create tools that work within your companies needs to create content.
  3. Learn how to create the different types of enumerations in xml or text documents to automate user data entry into families.

Revit model performance can impact your project team and is dependent on many variables. Workflow strategies, team skill level and BIM requirements to name just a few. Extracting and visualising data allows you to track model performance trends and be proactive about maintenance to maintain a high level of efficiency.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand how to extract information about your Revit model.
  2. Learn how to visualise extracted data as a dashboard to gain insights into your Revit model behaviour.
  3. Find common issues and define strategies that impact your model and project team performance.

Construction simulation using a Building Information Model can be pretty straightforward. The process is very similar, whether you’re using Primavera P6, Microsoft Excel, Asta PowerProject BIM, or Synchro.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn what issues to look out for in a Building Information Model that may impact your scheduling/planning decisions, and how best to deal with them and get your work done.
  2. Learn how to visualise objects within the model to demonstrate site activities and test constructability.
  3. Learn the principles applicable to construction simulations that can be applied to multiple scheduling software tools.
  4. Learn what modelling practices and component attributes you need to best support 4D construction simulation.
