|Abstract: ||The Construction industry is a major generator of waste material. Construction waste should
be minimized at source. If we are to significantly reduce the level of construction waste
designers should consider reducing construction waste during the design process. The
majority of construction waste is generated from the concreting process. In general, any
reduction in on-site concreting leads to waste reduction. Precasting and prefabrication
therefore offers significant opportunities for the reduction of waste. If precasting is adopted
there are significant implications for the design phase of the project. Additional information
is needed by design staff, construction expertise is required as part of the design process.
This paper shows how information modeling and Design Structure Matrix, (DSM),
techniques enable designers to model and understand the implications of such decisions
within the detailed design process.|
