Advantages: Our unique process yields higher quality, faster
Building digitally, direct from the model, sets us apart. Each precise-to-spec product is uniquely manufactured based on the project’s specifications, rather than a template, meaning that prefabrication can be part of a highly creative approach.
Our automated machines build your components directly from the model, eliminating the waste of paper drawings as well as the potential for human error. The result is a smarter, faster and better way to deliver a building.
A factory environment improves quality control and translates to products that fit as expected in the field.
We batch materials to reduce waste and remove human error from the equation, giving you a better product with greater cost certainty.
Faster Build Times
Manufacturing panels in parallel with work done in the field accelerates the project schedule.
Our manufacturing facility provides you with the benefits of offsite, multi-trade digital fabrication. Proprietary software drives production. The extensive use of technology in our manufacturing process starts at the commodity level, where data feeds our production line of automatic and robotic machines to create precise-to-spec components. Our roll former bends, cuts and engraves “kit instructions” on each piece. Robotic welders connect studs with precision, followed by screw bridges that attach sheathing. Panels are manufactured in an ergonomic environment resulting in an efficient workflow and consistency across each product made.
The final factory-quality products allow teams to quickly weather-in buildings, increase safety, and help meet building efficiency standards. Products may also count towards environmental certification credits.
Digital Building Components also provides consulting services for engineering and Revit modeling.
To support our clients throughout the project lifecycle, we created an app to help teams manage their project by tracking its progress from the factory through installation. Through this app, teams can visually sequence and order tasks to simulate and plan how panels are fabricated, bunked and delivered for optimal installation efficiency.
Alignment from Live Data
Using the current fabrication model creates alignment between the jobsite and our manufacturing facility.
The app ensures predictable results between the project and factory, and streamlines handoff to production. This enables installation teams to relay their ideal sequence in specific detail.
The app helps reduce project management hours, eliminates human error when transcribing data, and promotes transparency, efficiency and convenience.
