In his speech, Mr. Mustafa Tolunay referred ten technologies that will transform the global economy until 2025. He stated “Unfortunately, we, as a country, do not allocate a lot of money and time on design and the project. However, accordingly, our costs result in more financial losses when complications arise in the construction of constructions.” Mr. Tolunay, with this statement, has attracted more attention to one more subject to be taken into consideration in the field of prefabricated construction.

HekimBoard Branded A1 Class NonFlammability in BIM Studies

Mr. Tolunay, stated that, one year ago, they started BIM studies in prefabricated construction, employing cement boards featuring Hekimboard A1 class nonflammability, together with BIM object form, they intended to completely digitalize their system with the other product groups included in the process; and he expressed that their goals is in this direction. Mr. Tolunay expressed their enthusiasm as a company about the adaptation process to BIM and stated that they are intensively working and they aim to complete the process about two years later in prefabricated construction. After full adaptation to BIM, as prefabricated construction, he added to his statements that they could have the opportunity to share information with customers about all phases of the project from construction to completion.

Mr., Tolunay, addressed the sustainability about the phases of the construction of the Prefabrik Yapı’s lightweight steel structure, of Steelin brand, which can be erected up to 8 storey; He made a mini presentation on three-dimensional modeling on this subject and thereby, clarified those that are wondered about prefabricated buildings.

Increased Urbanization Rate was talked about at the Summit

Mr. Naji Atallah, Production Department Manager has also made a speech at the summit together with Autodesk Mimarlık, Mühendislik İnşaat (AEC) (Autodesk Architecture, Engineering Construction) . In the summit, which was held with the congregation of all stakeholders in the construction sector, He talked about the rate of urbanization increasing each passing day.

Long Train Railways Will Be Needed

Mr. Naji Atallah emphasized that when approaching the year 2050, the construction sector would be able to meet the global need only with the construction of 13,000 houses per day. However, the roads amounting to a length of 30 times circling around the world in terms of highway and railroad, would be required. Mr. Atallah has put an emphasis by saying ” “Most importantly, we need to meet all needs with less resources, less waste and carbon emissions, and build an environmentally friendly ecosystem.” For this reason, he shared that they have also taken into consideration the effects on the climate change during product design.
