XS CAD Expands DfMA & Prefabrication Design, Modelling & Drafting Division

Increasing demand for prefabrication leads to XS CAD expansion

XS CAD Expands DfMA & Prefabrication Design, Modelling & Drafting Division

Increasing demand, tighter project lead times and technological improvements contribute to greater levels of prefabrication in construction. As urban populations swell, there is an increasing need for more buildings. Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and prefabricated construction BIM solutions enable mass assembly off-site in controlled environments, before being transported to site, resulting in shorter construction times, significant cost savings and greater efficiency.

XS CAD recently expanded its dedicated DfMA and Prefabrication Design Division to cater to the increasing prefabrication design needs worldwide. A UK and India-based firm, with offices in the US, Canada and Australia, XS CAD uses Revit and AutoCAD software to provide prefabricated design models and drawings for a range of prefabricated solutions.

XS CAD’s DfMA division includes engineering designers able to detail prefabricated ceiling and riser module racks, etc. XS CAD works closely with Western customers to create 3D BIM models for fabrication.

A recent XS CAD project involved the provision of models and drawings, including all structural detail and support systems, as well as MEP services, fittings and sanitaryware, for an installation of more than 750 prefabricated bathroom, shower room and washroom pods for a large US based hospital.  

In another project, the XS CAD design team created 550 unique, prefabricated engineering modules for corridor ceilings, risers and for an external energy centre in a UK-based hospital. MEP services were coordinated to allow fitting, assembly, access and lagging. The DfMA team assisted with detailed module drawing preparation.  

XS CAD is a firm that is well placed to offer customers a professional design and detailing service that is tried and tested for existing projects across Western markets. XS CAD has also started to provide retained resource teams to larger customers so that the design resource is guaranteed and assured in a market where skilled resources are critical for project success.
