Modular Wood-Frame for Multi-Family: Design, Details and Delivery
Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern
Modular construction is touted as an opportunity to combat rising interest rates and construction prices through greater efficiency, address skilled labor shortages, and reduce jobsite waste. However, some architects and engineers are hesitant to embrace the modular approach because they don’t want their designs to be compromised, and they don’t think it has the flexibility or functionality to execute certain project typologies. Presented by a modular design expert from Seattle, this webinar will take a close look at modular wood-frame multi-family projects, with an emphasis on detailing. Due to the unique fabrication, delivery and installation aspects of modular buildings, coordination of detailing and inspections is a must, and this presentation will explain how communication among all parties leads to project success. Other topics will include sourcing techniques and the resulting effects on quality, timeliness, and sustainability.
