12.30 | 9.30 – Welcome & Industry Overview: The Development of Industrialized Construction

Synopsis

This opening session will track the growth and development of offsite construction in all its forms to date, and how the industry is beginning to define different degrees of prefabrication from single-trade componentry through volumetric modular. Explore how all stakeholders are being required to change both strategic and tactical thinking as we enter the Age of Industrialization, particularly in our definition, planning and reimagining of the difference of projects and products.

2.20 | 11.20 True Construction Partners: Leveraging BPMs (Building Product Manufacturers) to Add Value to Projects & Increase your Win Ratio

Synopsis

BPMs are typically in-the-know about upcoming projects and are actively involved in the design development phase which allows an opportunity for early planning and sourcing. When BPMs are part of the design and scope of the project they can reduce cost, waste and delays by offering technical expertise, customizing material and shipments and controlling material pricing for more predictability
Join this fireside chat to explore the value of building solid relationships with your BPM to raise confidence, minimize revenue going to your bottom line, and reduce unplanned delays and wasted materials onsite

4.00 | 1.00 Fireside Chat: Taking Lessons Learned from Industrialized Ventures to Date to Rethink Productization & Localization

Synopsis

Through the growth of industrialization in design and construction in the last ten years, the awareness for new business models and a reimagining of the position of modular firms in the traditional AEC supply chain has grown. However, many have tried and failed to reconcile this dynamic which has only been compounded by the economic uncertainty of 2020. Therefore, this fireside chat with some of the industry leaders at the coalface of these struggles will delve into the lessons learned from industry failures to date to prevent us from reinventing the wheel in the future, and provide a new perspective of future-proofing industrialized services.
• How can teams more effectively productize and market prefabricated solutions to reduce stigma and further grow industrialization in the industry?
• In what ways can new companies integrate and work with the traditional supply chain to harness local talent and cement their position in local markets?
• What is the future of localization for modular manufacturers to further drive cost efficiencies and rival the cost efficiencies of Europe and the Asia- Pacific?
