CEU Podcast: How Industrialized Construction Will Shape the Future of Design

An in-depth look at the future of the design process

This article was originally published by ThinkLab as part of The Learning Objective CEU Podcast series.

The Learning Objective CEU Podcast by ThinkLab

In this episode, presented by DIRTT, ThinkLab interviews Daniel Hall, assistant professor at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands, and Amy Marks, VP at Autodesk, on what industrialized construction means, how it works, and how it can help designers and manufacturers collaborate more closely.

Show Notes

Our first guest, Daniel Hall, assistant professor at TU Delft, provides his own definition of industrialized construction. He also explains how designers who adopt this holistic approach and move away from the conventional design process will experience three mindset shifts. Hall also stresses how industrialized construction can enable more circular design in the built environment.

Amy Marks, vice president of industrialized construction at Autodesk, shares her vision for the future of industrialized construction — especially as a way to connect designers and manufacturers earlier in the design process. She describes how industrialized construction requires thinking of the built environment as a product rather than a project, and that finding a way to “productize” process development can lead to better business and sustainability outcomes.

After listening, you will be able to:

  • Summarize what industrialized construction encompasses

  • Contrast how industrialized construction differs from conventional construction

  • Analyze how industrialized construction changes the traditional design process

  • Examine how industrialized construction enables new product and process innovation
