Track 1

Systems as Solutions
The Case for Modular Construction
The relative economics of volumetric modular in light timber-frame, steel construction, or CLT shells. What does speed mean to the developer?

Track 2

Adapt, Integrate, Collaborate
Mechanization & Automation
How does cutting-edge manufacturing technology drive or enable offsite construction? Where and when should it be employed? Are you getting a reasonable return on your investment?

Track 3

Potential, Performance and Practicalities
Addressing Challenges in Mass Timber Design & Construction
The importance of getting in early; How to design a mass timber building that maximizes yield in the factory; Strategies to address code challenges

Breakout Sessions

Education Program
Track 1

Systems as Solutions
The Case for Panelized Construction
In what situations do panelized solutions make more sense than modular?

Track 2

Adapt, Integrate, Collaborate
Generative Design & Offsite Construction
What will be the impact of generative design on the built environment? Will generative design level the playing field with steel and concrete?

Track 3

Potential, Performance and Practicalities
Financing Offsite Construction
The hurdles that early adopters face in finding institutional sources of capital to finance their projects.
