Summary

Written for architects and related design and construction professionals, Prefab Architecture is a guide to offsite construction, presenting the opportunities and challenges associated with designing and building with components, panels and modules. It presents the drawbacks of building in situ (on-site) and demonstrates why prefabrication is the smarter choice for better integration of products and processes, more efficient delivery, and realizing more value in project lifecycles. Smith offers designers and construction professionals guidelines that rethink all stages of the design process in order to effectively utilize the fabrication process."Prefab Architecturehellip; is beyond theory, and beyond most of what we think we know about pods, containers, mods, and joints. This book is more than ls"Prefabrication 101.rs" It is the ls"Joy of Cookingrs" writ large for the architecture and construction industries." --From the foreword by James Timberlake, FAIA
