Modular Building Institute


MBI to Host
D.C. Modular Construction Summit

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 host a two-day Modular Construction Summit on June 27-28, 2013, in Washington D.C., to discuss current topics in modular construction.

A lunch presentation by keynote speaker Henry Green kicks off the summit at noon on June 27th. Panel discussions will follow with Joe Wheeler from Virginia Tech School of Architecture & Design moderating a session on "Modular Solutions for Large Mixed-Use Projects" and Bradley Guy from Catholic University School of Architecture moderating "Innovation in Modular Construction."

On the morning of June 28th, attendees will hear from modular builders and design professionals involved with the modular classroom display at the National Building Museum's Green Schools Exhibit .

Open to the general public, the event will take place at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. Registration is $199, $149 for MBI members, and $25 students. For complimentary press registration, please contact Tracey Daniels.

Keynote Speaker

Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA, President and CEO of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) will serve as the summit's keynote speaker. NIBS is a leader in the pursuit of high performing and sustainable buildings, including the use of modular and other forms of offsite construction. Mr. Green was named an Honorary Architect by the American Institute of Architects in 2008 for his role “… as a skillful consensus builder in the building codes and standards arena, a perpetual advocate for bringing architects into leadership roles.” In 2011, the HighPerformance Building Congressional Caucus Coalition presented Mr. Green with the Leadership in HighPerformance Buildings Award. NIBS is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that successfully brings together representatives of government, the professions, industry, labor and consumer interests, and regulatory agencies to focus on the identification and resolution of problems and potential problems that hamper the construction of safe, affordable structures for housing, commerce and industry throughout the United States. Authorized by the U.S. Congress, the Institute provides an authoritative source and a unique opportunity for free and candid discussion among private and public sectors within the built environment.
