Rabot Dutilleul employees are involved in research work applied to ongoing projects, for the purpose of optimising construction processes (BIM, Industry 4.0, kitting, 3D printing, etc.)

Building Information Modelling is an incredible development from which Rabot Dutilleul greatly benefits. Members of the construction division’s teams have been trained in BIM and the company’s various engineering offices (design, general contracting, structures, methods, etc.) are equipped to tender for BIM contracts. By using this interoperable platform, Rabot Dutilleul reaps multiple benefits: it facilitates relations with sub-contractors, improves worksite supply chain management and adds value to the business of operating buildings.

Smart Module Concept, a subsidiary specialised in the modular construction of wooden buildings, is developing an Industry 4.0 system. In its plant, 95% of the buildings are made in accordance with the same working principles as in the automotive industry based on a smart “connected” process, which permits interaction in real time between each manufacturing stage and a project’s overall digital model. This connected industrial process optimises quality and keeps costs and compliance with delivery deadlines under control.

Kitting has been successfully tested during refurbishment projects. It is based on the concept of using a logistics provider to deliver kits on site as the works progress: each kit groups the equipment that is strictly necessary, thus saving time and optimising cost savings.
