International Builder’s Show 2018: Technology and Design Trends

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, January 09, 2018

This year we took the Intexure team to the International Builder’s Show to look at Technology and Design trends. Intexure has long been ahead of the curve when it comes to Building information technology, BIM. We wanted to see what is new in integrating BIM data into construction though software and digital fabrication technologies. We are also interested in advancing rendering and 3D visualization techniques such as virtual reality, VR walkthroughs and how we can use this in our modular prefab approach to off-site construction. Technology can improve the prefab client experience through better visualization as well as the off-site construction approach in having relevant BIM data at the point of fabrication in the factory.

As far as design trends, the modern farmhouse style was clearly growing. Intexure’s modern farmhouse through context homes captures this trend for our clients. This includes farmhouse modern sinks, tile, and other finishes.
