MC-101: Modular Construction

Modular construction has received much press recently. The Modular Building Institute claims modular construction is Greener, Faster and Smarter than comparable site-built construction. The factory-controlled lean manufacturing process generates less waste, creates fewer site disturbances, allows for tighter construction and completion in half the time. In this program, participants will learn the “nuts-and-bolts” about modular construction through the presentation of a case study for a new 25 story, 168 key hotel in mid-town Manhattan. 

Presented by:
John Robertson,  Senior Technical Architect,  EPSTEIN
David Scott,  Director of Hospitality, EPSTEIN
