||In early ages 'Designing' of a building could not be differentiated from'building' it, since the Master Builder was also the designer. With theincreased complexity of design, this arrangement changed. Currentlydesigning a building and constructing it are two different tasks. Thedescription of design is done using drawings, whether in 2 or 3 dimensions,while construction operations is usually described by means of constructionschedules. Three-dimensional details of building assemblies are often usedfor describing the design details. If we can describe the building detailsparametrically with construction operations only, then we can save time indeveloping assembly details and improve constructability. This paperdescribes a new approach to store design description of assembly details asintelligent objects. Each of these objects represents a building assembly.These assemblies are linked to a database of networks, that genericallydescribe how the assemblies are built/drawn (i.e. the components used andthe geometric/construction operations). A prototype system EASYBUILD isintroduced.
