Data Driven Infrastructure - From digital tools to manufactured components

last modified Nov 02, 2017 11:51 AM

In July 2017 Digital Built Britain issued report on 'Delivery Platforms for Government Assets - Creating a marketplace for manufactured spaces'

It set out the strategic adoption of DfMA in a coordinated and consistent way across the Government estate, by setting out:

  • The benefits of DfMA
  • The briefing and design process that would facilitate the adoption of standardised solutions;
  • the characteristics that a standardised set of components (or platforms) would need to possess;
  • the methodology for assembly of assets that would maximise the benefits on an industrialised approach.
