Aims: The construction industry is one of the largest industries in the world and one of the most important economic pillars of a country. Throughout history, problems in this field have led human societies to find new solutions. Among today's problems in this field, we can mention the wastage of materials and energy, very high costs, and failure to complete projects on time, which is especially evident in large government projects.

Methods: In terms of methodology, this research has a qualitative nature in which qualitative methods are used. The main results of the research have been achieved by using the tools of library studies, analyzing the documentaries, and interviews with experts.

Findings: The research findings show that the use of new construction technologies and methods can take an effective step in improving the quality of architectural products. The present research provides a method to upgrade the construction industry by recognizing and extracting quantifiable qualities in architectural product production. For this purpose, the integration of software and hardware technologies is emphasized for industrialization and industrial construction.

Conclusion: The results of the research show that the integration of building information modeling technology and prefabrication is an effective step to optimize large government projects. Reducing the time and cost of construction, it increases the satisfaction of users and increases safety, and finally, it helps to improve the quality of the architectural product. The conclusion of the article emphasizes the role of prefabrication in meeting highperformance architecture and energy-efficient architecture and planning.
