summary This paper examines the current state of the conventional Design-Bid-Build project, wherein design intentions are manually translated to construction directives by subcontractors based on industry-specific details. This process exacerbates a dilemma in design and construction; that often the designer may be unaware of certain details that are involved in fabricating and assembling building components. Research for Knowledge Base for Architectural Detailing (KBAD) proposes a system that takes advantage of current CAD software and programming language, bringing together the information provided by and important to the design team with the data required by the subcontractor to accurately produce architectural components, during the design phases of a project. The trade of architectural precast concrete is used to demonstrate the potential of such a system. Solid modeling, visual scripting, and programming language techniques working towards KBAD are described. Possible variations of architectural precast concrete panels, detailed with window openings, reveals, and embed plates, are presented.
