Product Based Building Solutions
A physical and digital building system that standardises the invisible, while customising the visible.
Product Based Building Solutions (PBBS) aims to streamline the end to end project delivery process with a physically and digitally configurable kit of parts. It catalogues facades, structures, and mechanical and electrical elements which can all integrate to form complete buildings. It means designers can not only select the best individual parts, but can make data-driven decisions about which components work best with each other, and are most effective and efficient to assemble. Rather than creating identikit buildings, the PBBS helps standardise invisible elements in a build and create greater certainty and productivity throughout the design manufacture and assembly process so builds can be installed quicker and cost less. Importantly, the software allows designers to customise the final building around the needs of the customer and end users. PBBS doesn't standardise the outcome, it standardises the way the building is put together.
