Prefabrication and modular construction are among the biggest trends in healthcare today, and by the look of their current trajectory, they are here to stay. While there are many advantages to incorporating this type of construction into current and new healthcare design projects, there can be many challenges as well. 

This virtual interactive, collaborative, problem-solving workshop is designed to enable project stakeholders (designers, solution providers, facility executives, administrators, and care providers) to explore the key tenets of prefabrication and modular construction, how the benefits of “better, cheaper, faster” are balanced with quality and safety, and how design/build processes and budgets can be reframed from traditional healthcare design/build projects.

Through presentations, case studies and conversations, attendees will gain insight into the latest developments in the field and better understand the advantages and challenges of the prefabrication/modular approach. Attendees also will benefit from interactive exercises with fellow attendees and faculty and can share questions and ideas with the owners, faculty, and solution providers throughout the event.

Presentation — Leveraging Prefabrication to Achieve Project Design Goals 

A convergence of technology, manufacturing, modular design and prefabrication is rendering creative solutions in the next frontier of healthcare facility deployment. However, utilizing prefabrication successfully is not a one size fits all solution and requires a thoughtful design process to meet the goals of the project.
