How to assemble a house in five hours

Netherlands-based Unbrick deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud as the foundation for its disruption of the construction sector

Step inside Netherlands-based Unbrick’s purpose-built production facility and you’ll find prefabricated rooms – kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and bedrooms, for example – all lined up and ready to be delivered to site, where they can be assembled into a highly sustainable home in as little as five hours.

Unbrick’s unique approach is revolutionizing the Dutch housing market by challenging the traditional materials, processes and culture of construction firms.

The Unbrick team deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud to create an integrated, data-driven environment that facilitates effective collaboration and can scale as the company grows. It was able to digitize its entire end-to-end process, from the initial idea to the finished building.

Leveraging the unified modelling and simulation – known as MODSIM – capabilities on the platform, engineers took advantage of creative, collaborative design with enhanced product insights. This also helps minimize risk and maximize performance, all while accelerating sustainable innovation.

“We aim to make our homes better every day, always seeking to improve our efficiency, our sustainability and our production techniques,” said Krijn Smits, Unbrick’s director of brand and customer experience. “This is only possible with a solution like 3DEXPERIENCE. It allows us to test new ideas quickly and easily, and make tweaks where necessary. It makes continuous improvement possible.”
