Scopes, Roles and Responsibility Delineation: How to Establish Design Parameters for Off- vs. On-Site Work
As mass timber and light-frame wood projects continue to evolve to include more off-site fabricated components, clear delineations of scope and responsibility are essential to ensure that all aspects are properly designed, procured, and installed. In this session, presenters will demonstrate how to navigate the intricate process of defining scopes, roles, and responsibilities when delineating design parameters for projects that include off- and on-site elements. Attendees will learn effective methodologies for aligning design objectives with construction realities, and understand the existing regulatory frameworks related to off-site constructed and fabricated components, especially those fabricated in a different location than the Authority Having Jurisdiction. The presentation will also demonstrate how to establish clear parameters that streamline collaboration, bolster project efficiency, and ensure successful implementation of wood-based building projects.
