About This Course:
Today, modular construction is experiencing a new wave of attention and investment, and several factors suggest it may have renewed staying power. The maturing of digital tools has radically changed the modular-construction proposition—for instance, by facilitating the design of modules and optimizing delivery logistics. Consumer perceptions of prefab housing are beginning to change, particularly as new, more varied material choices improve the visual appeal of prefab buildings.
This learning program will examine the different types of prefabricated construction and structural components, the advantages of the different prefabricated processes, the impact of prefabrication on construction budgets, and how to create sustainable construction using prefabricated units.
