LA/OC Chapter Presentation, Tour and Mixer – Prefabrication in Lean Design-Build Construction
April 4, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm
With rising costs of construction, need for speed to market, and labor challenges, prefabrication is the most popular offsite construction method among owners, according to a 2018 FMI/CURT/CII Owner Survey. FMI indicates “the amount of project work using prefab has almost tripled between 2010 and 2016,” but it’s a big struggle to make it work. How does the AEC industry use Lean and Design-Build to make prefabrication more feasible? Hear solutions, opportunities and risks from industry proponents including DPR, Southland Industries, ConXtech, Clark Pacific, and Bergelectric, and see, in person, a tour of a new mechanical fabrication shop, at Southland Industries, prior to the formal program.
