A breakfast seminar on the potential and future of Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for the construction industry. Key speakers will address the importance of a design approach that focuses on the ease of manufacture and efficiency of assembly.
DfMA is the combination of two methodologies; Design for Manufacture, which focuses on how to design the parts that make a product specifically for ease of manufacture, and Design for Assembly, which is the design of the product for ease of assembly. By simplifying the design of a product it is possible to manufacture and assemble it more efficiently, in the minimum time and at a lower cost.
This morning talk will be led by expert speakers including;
– Ken Shuttleworth, founding director at Make Architects
– Neil Brearley, founding director at Cast real estate and construction consultantcy
– Frven Lim, director of DP Architects, London
– Simon Harold, business development director at PCE Limited
Hosts: Rhiannon Carss, communications manager and Dan Evans, executive director at Curtins, London
The morning will begin at 7.30am with a light breakfast followed by a talk and audience Q&A at 8.00 am. The event will end at 9.30am.
This event is produced by Curtins and supported by The Built Environment Trust.
