Digital Tools: Improving traditional construction
Presented by Bruce Bell, Founder, Facit Homes

The slow uptake and progression of digital tools within the construction industry is something that needs to change. There is a real potential that simple steps to improve processes could have a lasting improvement. This webinar will aim to showcase the range of digital tools available that could be adopted during your self-build journey and how they could assist in a more streamlined project.

What will this webinar cover?

  • Why the digital approach isn’t reinventing the wheel – how the process can be improved using tried and tested techniques
  • Digital designs – using digital tools to design homes and create 3D models for clients
  • BIM design coordination – applying technology to ensure that the technical design is functional
  • Digital manufacturing – using computer cutting to manufacture individual components
  • Mobile production facilities- why manufacture on site rather than off site and why mechanical production lines are not flexible enough for bespoke homes
  • Delivery – Digital communication tools on site and guided construction / step by step instructions of the digitally designed home
  • Q&A Session
