Closing the Gap: The Future of Offsite Construction
Find out how offsite construction methods are transforming the industry!
Closing the Gap: The Future of Offsite Construction brings together four professionals from several key parts of the industry – Owner, Constructor, Architect and Engineer to explore the background and case for the continued growth of offsite construction as a method to improve the quality and affordability of the built environment.
While prefabrication, modularization, and preassembly have been around for decades, they are becoming critical methods for delivering projects faster, safer and more cost effectively in a labor- challenged marketplace while leveraging the use of new integrated technologies and the increasingly blurred roles of designers and constructors
Join us for this immersive three-hour seminar that highlights the diverse perspectives of our professionals, the critical issues and opportunities going forward and an interactive panel discussion moderated by internationally acclaimed engineer, Steve Burrows!
