A Conceptual Cost Comparison Study between Alberta and Overseas Module Assembly Strategies for Industrial Construction ProjectsDownload
In recent years, the lower cost of construction resources in overseas countries (e.g. China and Korea) and advancements in transportation have increased the interest in offshore fabrication and assembly of industrial modules as an alternative to local assembly in Alberta, Canada. Many research...
In North America, industrial projects are constructed using a modularization/offsite construction method. Modules, such as pipe racks and vessels, are prefabricated offsite in factories, assembled in module yards, and shipped to the site for installation. This process has been adopted by the...
Improving the Efficiency, Productivity, and Cost-Effectiveness of Modular Design and Construction ProcessesDownload
This thesis provides a methodology to incorporate building information modeling (BIM), lean construction, and simulation modelling into a cohesive package in the context of modular manufacturing. BIM was used to construct a three dimensional model from which the wall and object properties were...
