Offsite Construction in Wood: Reinventing the Role of the Design Professional
July 13, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Prefabrication, modularization, offsite and industrialized construction are increasingly being used as strategies to address mounting supply chain challenges, labor shortages, and escalating costs. The market for factory-based construction continues to rise in the U.S., especially in multi-family housing, as developers seek alternatives to conventional delivery models. The approaches are also evolving. In particular, this type of construction changes the planning and procurement processes, and therefore the scope of various project team members. This webinar examines how the roles of architect and engineer are changing to meet the demand of offsite construction workflows.
Presented by architecture academics and consultants at MOD X, who are experts in offsite and modular wood construction, the session will begin with a discussion of market drivers and an overview of light-frame and mass timber modular systems. It will then shift to four personas or archetypes representing the roles architects and engineers are playing in this changing construction landscape. The personas will be illustrated with case studies of contemporary practicing design professionals in the U.S. who are leading the practice of offsite construction and leveraging its value in unique ways. Their stories characterize the offsite wood design sector and the role of design teams in the future of wood modular construction.
