Modular Design and Pre-Fabrication: Balancing Better and Faster with Quality

July 2022

The Workshop


Pre-fabrication and modular construction are one of the biggest trends in healthcare today, and by the look of its current trajectory, it is here to stay. There are many advantages, and challenges, when incorporating this type of construction into current and new healthcare design projects.

This virtual interactive, collaborative, problem-solving workshop is designed to project stakeholders (designers, facility executives, administrators, and care providers) to explore the key tenants of pre-fabrication and modular construction, how the benefits of “better, cheaper, faster” is 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 into the latest developments in the field and the 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.
