As healthcare providers increasingly embrace prefabrication to pursue a wide range of cost, quality, speed and flexibility goals, design and facilities professionals need to do more than just keep up. They need to stay a step ahead, immersing themselves in the innovations, best practices and new lessons being learned every day.

Which spaces are best suited for prefabrication solutions? What changes need to be made in the design process? What real benefits, and challenges, have completed projects and their teams experienced? What would they do differently?

This webinar provides a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the process and methods used to incorporate prefabrication into the design process at the Women's and Children's Hospital in San Antonio Texas – and the lessons learned. You’ll hear which spaces they identified as the best candidates for prefabrication and why, and what adjustments they had to make to their design process, project timelines and staffing.

Plus they’ll share some of the owner benefits achieved through this process – reduced construction labor costs, improved safety and construction quality enabled by offsite fabrication, and fewer material shortages. Come learn from their story and ask your toughest pre-fab questions.
