The BIM Overlay to the RIBA Outline Plan of Work, published by the RIBA in 2012 suggested that construction industrialisation involves: ‘The development and improvement of construction work through the use of mechanisation and automation. The industrialisation of construction has several purposes: increase productivity, replace manual labour with machines, accelerate the pace of construction, put new projects into operation more quickly, reduce costs and improve quality.’
