NIBS: First OSCC Webinar Will Look at Getting the Most Out of Off-Site Construction

Jun 1, 2016 -- The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) is launching a new webinar series designed to share knowledge and improve industry efficiency, productivity and speed to market through the use of pre-fabrication and off-site construction. The webinars will feature topics across the broad spectrum of off-site construction techniques, technologies and tools. Architects, engineers, contractors, owners, code officials and other industry stakeholders will gain valuable insight into the opportunities offered by off-site construction and how to effectively implement off-site construction techniques in future projects.

The first webinar, “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1),” to be held June 23, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm ET, will be hosted by the Modular Building Institute. Building off-site vs. on-site requires different thinking, as well as an understanding of how both the approach and process can make a difference in the level of a project’s success. In this webinar, OSCC Secretary and NRB Vice President of Sales and Marketing Laurie Robert, LEED AP (BD&C) will introduce the spectrum of off-site construction opportunities and then specifically explore what it takes to choreograph and execute an effective permanent modular construction project, from the significance of early engagement to the end goal of early occupancy.

Part 1 of this two-part webinar will begin with a holistic view of the permanent modular construction industry today, followed by a look at some of the strategies and best practices needed to launch a successful project for all stakeholders. Topics include modular design development and integration; the decision-making process; the significance of the “module”; ideal project delivery methods and contract variables; as well as roles, responsibilities and scope of work delineation—all at the pre-bid or pre-construction phase. Part 2 of the webinar will be scheduled for later this summer.

To register for “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1),” you will first need to create a free account through the Modular Building Institute. Sign up now.
