Construction methods have generally remained constant over the last several decades. However, a growing number of developers and contractors are looking for answers to the million-dollar question: how to build faster, safer and better – and do it for less. Although the choice to use on-site wood framing versus some level of prefabrication depends on many factors, prefabricated and modular construction can offer a number of benefits, including faster construction, improved material efficiency and worker safety, enhanced quality assurance, and reduced material, labor and interest costs. Intended to explore the potential benefits to developers, building owners and contractors, this panel discussion will explore methods of delivering off-site fabricated components for wood-frame multi-family and commercial projects. Prefabrication, panelized components and full modular unit options will be discussed as will the markets trends and construction innovations that have led to this revolution.
