While commercial modular construction represents only three percent of overall commercial construction, this building method remains one of the most interesting and misunderstood, dating back to Egypt’s Great Pyramids. Advances in technology and trends, however, have made modular construction an extremely flexible and efficient process in today’s environmentally-conscious market, where up to 90% of a building is constructed in a quality-controlled factory using traditional building materials, then shipped to a final destination and assembled to form a seamless building.

Regardless of industry experience, every person interested or involved in permanent modular construction or relocatable buildings should participate in this live webinar. Developed by MBI and Sandler Training in response to the need for industry-specific training in a live online format, this course is delivered in order of a successful modular building project from start to finish.

Participants will learn principles of selling, how to qualify a customer, project delivery methods, fundamentals of teamwork, who the key players are, common design considerations, common building materials used, site considerations, site supervision, and methods of installing and finishing a modular building.

Comparisons are made between modular construction and traditional site-built construction, while webinar resources are designed to help attendees understand terminology and concepts of commercial modular building.
