Leading Offsite Construction
IWBC is where wood-based offsite construction’s suppliers, buyers and specifiers meet to explore opportunities, exchange ideas and introduce technologies to move this industry forward. Opportunities and advancements in integrated, offsite, wood-based manufacturing explained by the experts.
Featured Topics & Industries at IWBC
Enables leading edge automation, greater precision and higher quality, accelerated project schedules, more efficient assembly on site with less disruption and a significant reduction in the need for skilled labor.
Mass Timber is leading a rebirth of modern construction. Demand is growing exponentially driven by an ever-increasing demand for low-carbon buildings and enabled by advances in manufacturing technology and the productization of buildings.
Offsite manufacturing allows laborers to work year-round in a safe, controlled environment. The need for skilled labor is greatly reduced because of in-plant automation and the ease of assembly of fewer, larger finished elements onsite.
DfMA — Design for Manufacture and Assembly
DfMA and digitalization are enabling architects, engineers and contractors to create buildings that go up faster, more affordably, with higher quality and value and a smaller carbon footprint.
Reducing Embodied Carbon
When sustainably managed and harvested, wood produces far lower CO2emissions than concrete or steel. If the industry wants to make an impact, mass timber and light framing are a clear solution in North America. One cubic meter of wood will store one ton of carbon dioxide.
Delivery Options: Mass Timber, Light Frame, Panelized Modular
All offsite, all vertically integrated, all are leaner, greener, faster and cost effective. IWBC is the place to see and learn about leading offsite wood construction.
