TG57 Publication is a State of the Art Report “New Perspective in Industrialisation in Construction.
Industrialisation in Construction is defined as a rationalisation of the work processes in the industry to reach cost efficiency, higher productivity and quality.
It involves a change of thinking and practice to improve the production of construction to produce a high quality, customised built environment, through an integrated process, optimising standardisation, organisation, cost and value, mechanisation and automation.
Several aspects are usually linked with industrialisation such as: Use of mechanical power and tools, use of computerised steering systems and tools, production in a continuous process, continues improvement of efficiency, standardisation of products, prefabrication, rationalisation, modularisation and mass production.
Drivers to industrialise construction include the need for
Safety, better quality control, better occupational health, better environmental care, cheaper production and the lack of skilled labour.
This book is divided in 4 main sections:
• Methods and Tools
In the last chapter some successful examples of industrialisation are shown.
