Setting-up for Success

Keynote: Building a New Business Case for Prefabrication That Aligns with Changing Paradigms


  • Assessing the entire business case for prefab and modular: What are the deliverables being met for the owner and different members of the project team outside of the traditional cost and schedule savings?
  • Benchmarking successful ways to present intangible deliverables of offsite work to upper management and project partners to more quickly secure buy-in
  • Analyzing how the business case may differ for different owners and contractors in different markets, and how this can be better reflected in up-front conversations and bids to promote prefab and modular

Is Your Company Prefab Ready?: Identifying & Removing Cultural Corporate Roadblocks to Enable Success With Offsite Manufacturing


Taken in two parts, this session will comprise of an introductory presentation from Ms Marks, outlining her five point review process for prefab readiness to understand some of the corporate roadblocks and enablers to success. Where does your company fit?

  • Understand the different levels of prefabrication readiness, what it means to move between levels, and how this can be achieved
  • Identify starting points and possibilities to then develop pathways and strategies for prefabrication across different areas of your business

The conclusion of this presentation will be a panel discussion of various individuals who have gone along this journey, exploring how they optimized their corporate structure and processes to establish the right culture, strategic plans and prefab champions to maintain success of prefab and modular initiatives within their own companies.

Maximizing Prefabrication & Modularization Opportunities

Identifying All Opportunities for Prefabrication on Your Project & Selecting the Best for Your Team


  • Thinking outside the box: Encouraging teams to think creatively in the initial conceptual stages to identify prefabrication opportunities and leveraging a systematic approach to lock down prefab and modular scopes on your project
  • Underlining ways to select skilled teams and gain buy-in from other project partners, while ensuring you are always providing value to our clients
  • Adapting facilities and workflows to optimize productivity on your next project, and how this experience can help to identify potential areas for standardization

  • Reviewing lessons learned by each stakeholder on previous projects and how this can inform improvements in the future
    Understanding how each stakeholder developed their prefabrication capabilities from one project to the next, and how this accumulated on the final project to assess the unique opportunities here to take prefabrication to the next level
  • What’s next?: What lessons have been learned so far from projects like Mount Carmel, Houston Methodist, UTSW and San Antonio Military Medical Center by each stakeholder, and where do they see the opportunities to improve next time around?
