Façade design is becoming ever more complex: clients and Architects are requesting exciting new geometries, and high performance materials are being used to produce the façade elements. Now that BIM is part of the daily tool kit of the construction industry we have the opportunity not only to improve the design and construction process, but also to improve the designs themselves. By combining knowledge-based techniques with semantically rich – and potentially intelligent – design information, we can quickly assess early design stage panelisation schemes for manufacturability. This allows us to identify, communicate and resolve design issues early on in the process, helping to reduce build cost and re-work.
