    We are in the midst of a new industrial revolution. Led by the concepts of design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) as well as the platform approach of digitally designed components, industrialization of construction is teaching an old industry new tricks and transforming the way cities are built. From full volumetric pods to components on the critical path, offsite prefabrication is becoming increasingly popular in the North American market as owners, designers and contractors collaborate to realize the benefits it can bring to quality, schedule and project economics. With carbon offsetting a growing reality, the rise of net zero and net positive buildings paired with new materials such as mass timber and DFMA, a new wave of industrialization is emerging.
