Absolutely Prefab

Has the time come for Modular Construction?
Absolutely Prefab webinar
CPD Webinar – 2.5 formal CPD points

Ironically, COVID 19 has brought upon an opportunity for meaningful change in the construction industry. Social distancing, safe working plans and limiting workers on site, (estimates are 60% of workers can safely return) will slow productivity (expected to be 30%- 40% lower) and overall efficiencies, resulting in projects taking longer to complete.

The challenge, for the industry, lies in adjusting to these new circumstances, while simultaneously maintaining the design and delivery of quality buildings in an efficient, sustainable and cost effective way. Could one of the solutions lie in a shift in building activity away from traditional onsite projects to offsite manufacturing style production characterised by modular construction?

While not a new concept, modular construction is attracting a new wave of interest on the back of these profound societal changes. Underpinned by significant technological, economic and social advantages, modular building has the potential to play an important role in a post Covid construction recovery. 

This webinar, to be led by John Lucchetti (Stantec), Damien Crough (prefabAUS) and Chris Exner (Rothelowman Architects) will look at the potential benefits, explore the challenges and draw on each presenter’s collective experience designing and building with prefab.

Attendees will learn:

  • Modular building services opportunities.
  • Local Case Study Projects (Rothelowman) Tip Top Apartments & Latrobe Tower.
  • Minimising waste and maximise efficiencies on modular projects through modern manufacturing technologies.
  • Modular design workflows.
  • ESD opportunities around modular construction.
  • Enhancing construction and buildings through collaboration and technology implementation.
  • Where potential opportunities lie for successful prefab buildings.

Cost to attend is $85 per person plus GST. Save 20% when you book for a group of 4 or more. Purchase includes course notes, MP4 recording of the session and CPD certificate.
