Presented by: Plant Prefab
The goal of this course is to provide an overview of prefabrication, basic design principles, and how prefabrication expands upon the capabilities and experiences of traditional, site-based construction. The course also provides insights on how the use of technology is optimizing the process, and how design professionals can begin taking advantage of the many benefits of prefabricated construction for their residential projects. The design criteria are intended to be used as early in the design and planning process as possible, particularly before engineering is completed as engineering for prefab differs from that of site-based construction.
Learning Objective 1: Prefab Definitions & Delineations: Understand the different types of residential prefabrication methods and benefits.
Learning Objective 2: The Prefab Process: Learn the definition of factory-built housing, the approval process, and how site plays a critical role in the feasibility for offsite construction.
Learning Objective 3: Design Considerations: Understand the unique considerations of designing for prefabrication, including SMEP coordination and overall project scope of work.
Learning Objective 4: Choosing a Prefabricator: Learn the key factors to consider when evaluating and choosing a prefabricator.
