Abstract The Korean New Deal emerged as an economic concept that aimed to transform the economy to make it greener by incorporating more digital services with stronger safety nets. This approach seemed to act as a countermeasure to overcome social dilemmas and address the economic recession caused by COVID-19. Additionally, the Serious Disaster Punishment Act came into effect on January 27, 2022. This bill focuses on strengthening criminal penalties for business owners in the event of an industrial accident that causes serious human harm. After its enforcement, significant interest was placed on construction sites, eventually leading to changes being made for a safer working environment and developing a more effective construction method. Off-Site-Construction (OSC) is one of the safest construction methods with minimal on-site work, ultimately avoiding potential industrial accidents. Increasingly, the need for the Building Information Modeling (BIM) design process along with modular architecture based on OSC is in demand. This research intends to suggest modular architecture based on OSC as an alternative in response to the increasing demand for on-site safety and for constructing reasonable, eco-friendly buildings for future generations. The ‘Modular Co-living Complex’ apartment house is considered the most applicable architectural form, therefore, technological improvements and overall efficiency is required. To propose a safer, more efficient, and sustainable building construction method, this study seeks to focus on the analysis of domestic and international case studies of the preceded modular co-living complexes; the applicability of BIM technology to maximize the performance in the modular architectural design process was also examined. Ultimately, this study suggests the ‘BIM-based modular integrated design’ model where the architectural project easily converges into a much simpler process and explores the most useful, effective methods in practice.
