Modular Design and Pre-Fabrication: Building a Flexible Future

August 2021

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 in current and new healthcare design projects.

Join us for this virtual interactive, collaborative, problem-solving workshop intended to enable 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.

Representatives from internationally acclaimed health systems will share insights into the latest developments in the field and the esteemed faculty will provide presentations and case studies that outline the advantages (i.e. flexibility, future-proofing, etc.) and challenges of this type of approach. Attendees also will benefit from interactive scenario breakouts and share questions and ideas with the owners, faculty, and solution providers throughout the event.




Welcome Opening Remarks & Introductions
