The Design Task:

Participants are tasked with designing a high-rise residential building or building complex using Industrialised Construction (IC) – using prefabricated building components.
Demonstrate how a transition from unorganised to organised construction practices addresses the issues of quality (workmanship, consistency, and design delivery to site), workers’ protection (upskilling, formal contracts, and safer working conditions) as well as integrating sustainable design (reduced wastage and pollution, inbuilt energy-efficient materials, and a reduced construction period).
Explore suitable construction materials and prefabricated components, and push creative boundaries while ensuring functionality and sustainability.
