When we look at new design and construction technologies, we evaluate them objectively and in terms of what will work best for the project. That said, we were excited to learn about the Prescient platform, which combines design software with off-site manufacturing of modular components, as it appeared to be particularly well-suited for urban multi-family…
Prescient has taken a new approach to the construction and engineering of large buildings. Working alongside our engineers, our clients design their dormitory and apartment buildings in cyberspace. Their designs are then sent to our factories, where assembly lines of automated roll formers and robotic laser cutters manufacture each building’s steel core. This approach has been…
As the construction industry continues to innovate, digital design and construction practices are gaining in popularity. Off-site construction is gaining traction because of its cost-efficiency attributed to the reduction of project rework
Known by many as the startup capital of the South, Durham is the site of a blossoming entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Innovators and investors from cities like Silicon Valley, New York City, Boston and elsewhere across the country are beginning to flock to The Bull City as it evolves beyond the historic, brick factory-filled city built by tobacco
Prescient: BIM (Prescient’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) Technology Propels Construction Industry Into the Future)
In an industry traditionally hesitant to change, technological advances are rapidly altering the way buildings are constructed and reshaping the industry as a whole. While the construction industry’s record of innovation and adoption of new technologies, tools and approaches has historically lagged behind most other sectors, it is increasingly embracing technology
Significant shifts in housing demand and macro-economic conditions are creating a major gap between supply and demand for properties in desirable locations. Increasing numbers of U.S. residents are moving closer to city centers where jobs and social experiences are greater.
