Offsite construction can be an entry point for innovation that simplifies onsite assembly, provides cost savings, and offers superior performance.

The sector has already implemented just-in-time job site production, reduced cycle time and inventory, and optimized vendor-managed processes.

Offsite construction will evolve to increasingly integrated assemblies to further reduce site labor and utilize advanced automation. Significant innovation in offsite construction is finally pushing a large portion of the construction process from the jobsite into manufacturing plants.

This course will cover what that innovation is and why the construction industry is ripe for change.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the underlying issues in building and construction that create the need for innovative new technology and manufacturing processes, including complex building codes, a fragmented and cyclical building process, and a shortage of skilled labor.
  • Compare offsite construction to site-built construction in a side-by-side demonstration and identify efficiencies in framing hours, lumber usage, and jobsite waste.
  • Understand how offsite production can boost construction productivity, while improving quality and sustainability at the same time, by incorporating automation and technology.
  • Discover how offsite construction is an entry point for innovation that simplifies onsite assembly, provides cost savings, and offers superior performance.
