Webinar: Getting the Most Out of Off-Site Construction,
Jun 15, 2016 -- There is just one week left to register for “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1),” the first webinar in the National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) series designed to share knowledge and improve industry efficiency, productivity and speed to market through the use of pre-fabrication and off-site construction. “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1),”will be held June 23, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm ET, and hosted by the Modular Building Institute.
Building off-site vs. on-site requires different thinking, as well as an understanding of how both the approach and process can make a difference in the level of a project’s success. In Part 1 of this two-part webinar, following an introduction to the spectrum of off-site construction opportunities by OSCC Chair Sue Klawans, OSCC Secretary Laurie Robert will explore what it takes to choreograph and execute an effective permanent modular construction project, from the significance of early engagement to the end goal of early occupancy.
The webinar will begin with a holistic view of the permanent modular construction industry today, followed by a look at some of the strategies and best practices needed to launch a successful project for all stakeholders. Topics include modular design development and integration; the decision-making process; the significance of the “module”; ideal project delivery methods and contract variables; as well as roles, responsibilities and scope of work delineation—all at the pre-bid or pre-construction phase. Part 2 of the webinar will be scheduled for later this summer.
The OSCC webinar series will feature topics across the broad spectrum of off-site construction techniques, technologies and tools. Architects, engineers, contractors, owners, code officials and other industry stakeholders will gain valuable insight into the opportunities offered by off-site construction and how to effectively implement off-site construction techniques in future projects.
To register for “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1),” you will first need to create a free account through the Modular Building Institute. Sign up now.
