CCA & MBI to Host
Modular Construction Summit
September 17, 2014, 1pm-5pm
The reality of an expedited schedule and lower costs has made offsite construction a valued building solution for decades. With curiosity about this process at an all-time high as developers turn to the method with growing enthusiasm, the Modular Building Institute will co-host a Modular Construction Summit with California College of the Arts on September 17, 2014 to discuss current topics and trends in modular construction.
Do modular buildings last as long as site-built? Are they environmentally sustainable? Can they be as attractive as their traditionally-built counterparts? While the answer to all of these questions is yes, the summit will provide an opportunity for people to find out exactly why – and get answers on many more issues.
This event will feature an afternoon session of presenters including modular builders, traditional builders, architects, engineers, professors, students, and more.
Open to the general public, the event will take place at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Registration is $75 for MBI members, $125 for nonmembers, and free for CCA students and professors. For a complimentary press registration, please contact Liz Burnett.
