Innovation in prefabricated construction on the Costa del Sol

Prefabricated houses have seen a significant evolution in recent years, transforming both their quality and public perception. The Costa del Sol has embraced this phenomenon, adopting advanced technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) to enhance efficiency and sustainability in construction.

Mario Lucas, commercial director of Bi·Homes, highlights the benefits of this methodology in industrialized construction. This technology allows the creation of detailed digital models that integrate information about all components of the house, from design to maintenance.

Benefits in prefabricated construction

The use of this tool allows for visualization and simulation of how different elements of the house interact before construction. This is especially beneficial on the Costa del Sol, where energy efficiency is crucial due to the climate. With this technology, it is possible to optimize natural light and ventilation, reducing the need for artificial lighting and air conditioning.

Not all companies have adopted this approach, but at Bi·Homes, advanced technology is fundamental to staying at the forefront. Through this method, it is possible to improve coordination between different disciplines, optimizing construction processes and reducing errors.

Efficiency and cost reduction

Digital modeling not only improves the quality of constructions but also reduces costs. Precision in planning and reducing material waste can decrease the total cost of projects by up to 20%. On the Costa del Sol, where the real estate market is highly competitive, these savings are significant.

An example of this is a recent project in the Sierra de Guadarrama, where this methodology allowed a detailed analysis of the required materials, minimizing waste and maximizing resource efficiency. This approach supports the commitment to sustainability, something increasingly valued in the region.

Improvement in quality and sustainability

Applying this system to the construction of prefabricated houses allows for higher quality standards. By identifying and solving problems at the design stage, last-minute modifications that could compromise the structural integrity or functionality of the building are avoided.

This approach not only improves the energy efficiency of homes but also supports more sustainable projects. The ability to simulate energy behavior and optimize resource use from the start results in more efficient constructions with less environmental impact.

Reduction in construction time

This methodology also allows for a reduction in construction time by up to 30%. On the Costa del Sol, where housing demand can be high, this efficiency is crucial to quickly meeting market needs.

Bi·Homes has been using this technology for years, integrating it into every project. This not only ensures a high standard of quality and efficiency but also allows for customization, quickly adapting designs to the specific preferences of each client.

Challenges and future in construction

Implementing these tools presents challenges such as staff training and the initial investment in software and hardware. However, the long-term benefits offset these initial challenges, allowing for a significant reduction in costs and construction times.

At Bi·Homes, the future of these technologies looks promising. An expansion of their functionalities is anticipated, including the life cycle analysis of materials and greater integration with artificial intelligence. This will further optimize the construction and management of buildings, keeping Bi·Homes at the forefront of prefabricated home construction on the Costa del Sol.
