2019-November Off-site Construction & Modularization Summit
Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach
November 06th @ 7:00 AM - November 06th @ 4:30 PM
The Offsite Construction Committee is making early plans for this year’s summit. It will be held in Clearwater Beach, Florida on Wednesday November 6th. The committee is seeking persons and/or companies with an interest in delivering a presentation or participating on a panel with other subject matter experts.
The goal of the 2019 summit will be to build upon the 2017 and 2018 summits by focusing on today’s challenges and best practices related to planning, budgeting and executing projects. The primary theme of the summit will be related to “Truck Shippable Modules,” with a secondary theme of “Complex Process Modules." The committee’s plan is to focus and coordinate the topics of the summit around all sizes of “truck shippable modules,” including standard, oversized and permitted loads in a wide variety of industry applications, including but not limited to: Oil & Gas, Mining, Chemical, Automotive, Industrial Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Alternative Energy, Power, Food & Beverage, and Mission Critical/Data Centers.
The committee has developed a number of specific topics of “priority” for the 2019 Summit. They include:
1. Identifying, Planning and Managing Critical Milestones on an offsite/modular project: what should an Owner be looking out for as the project progresses, and how are the milestones managed on different size projects? Maybe have some examples of what this would look like for small, medium, large projects.
2. Prestressed or Precast concrete uses and success stories.
3. Modularizing Utility and Process Systems by Decoupling them from the building: Owners should consider this option for: Chilled/Cooling Water Systems, Boiler/Hot Water Systems, Compressed Air, Water Treatment, Lubrication Systems, Data and IT Rooms/Buildings, Electrical/Power Rooms/Buildings, Emergency Generators, Small Process Systems as well as overhead utility racks that include conveying systems, electrical and controls/instrumentation systems, fire suppression, pharmaceutical/chemical processes.
4. Modularization Budgeting and Cost Certainty: Present actual case studies to validate and dispel the myth of modular construction being more expensive than traditional on-site construction methods for “similar” projects. Case studies should include examples of the importance of soft costs related to Safety and Time savings. The focus should be on projects utilizing truck shippable modules.
5. Modularization Scheduling Advantages: Present actual case studies and related data to validate that modular construction provides opportunities for “concurrent” offsite and onsite work activities that can result in significant reduction in the overall project schedule.
6. Lessons Learned and Actual Case Studies: this is a bit of a catch all category, looking for actual case studies with lessons learned and real data keeping with the theme of truck shippable module projects.
