Detailing Considerations for Off-Site Building Components

Sub Title Goes Here

In response to the growing use of off-site construction methods, this course will delve into the intricate detailing considerations essential for building performance. Components, systems of components, and full modules are being constructed off-site in efforts to reduce construction schedules and on-site labor, improve material efficiency, and increase worker safety. Although the choice to frame on-site versus implementing some level of prefabrication depends on many factors, it is important to understand how all the pieces come together to ensure occupant comfort and safety. This presentation will explore various levels of off-site wood-frame construction on multi-family and commercial projects, highlighting ways design teams can ensure structural integrity, high levels of acoustic and thermal performance, and ways to introduce the natural beauty of wood into the built environment to create comfortable and sustainable spaces.
