Offsite, modular construction strategies are gaining market share at an accelerating pace, providing owners with lower costs, and faster options for delivering new projects. The “Offsite Construction and Modularisation Symposium “is designed to provide you with a snapshot of the cutting edge of modular building design, component manufacturing, and construction techniques and help stimulate a dialogue among stakeholders to the modular/offsite process.
At this Symposium you will meet owners who envision modular as a solution to the increasing costs of construction and construction managers looking to modular to help address the very serious problem of a rapidly shrinking pool of craftsmen. You will also have the opportunity to discuss cutting edge design and manufacturing approaches, plus technologies such as 3D Printing, which can truly transform modular construction to dramatically increase its speed, precision, and quality.

“Manufacturing building components off-site provides for more controlled conditions and allows for improved quality and precision in the fabrication of the component”.
Sectors that are likely to be benefit from Offsite/Modular Construction include;
·Power & Energy
Registration & Tea Break
Join us for an exclusive tour . The site visit will take us through the life cycle of prefab construction. We will explore the materials used, casting beds, wood shop the production line, the engineering and finishing area, and the use of BIM and other systems that tie together design, architecture, construction, and finally delivery. Join us for this immersive experience that will set the stage for the two hands-on workshops in the afternoon.
Break into smaller tour groups
Lunch and Networking
Building more accurately and efficiently requires higher levels of development in your design models. This session will provide examples on challenges and opportunities of moving your models into the future
• Learn from an industry leader on how they serve their clients through integrating design, and construction
• Leverage interoperable technology applications, including, Building Information Modelling (BIM)
• Move your team and systems from outmoded models to higher efficiency
Offsite construction requires great foresight and planning, and the integration of design, architecture and construction at the early stages of project planning, and implementation. Integrating technology into your processes and workflow is an important piece of the puzzle. Learn how to effectively integrate BIM at the project, people, and systems level
What can we learn by looking beyond how we’ve always done it?
IMC Container Homes are constructed in South Africa from shipping containers. Designed to stand the test of time they are solid, safe, transportable and incredibly durable; being fire, earthquake and hurricane resistant. IMC can supply single storey up to high rise buildings. They also assist from design to installation including local authority approvals. Houses are delivered ready to plug and play. Construction including delivery and final hand over can take from 1-8 weeks (depends on project scope).In this session we look at how IMC was conceived and how Western Cape has benefited from this endeavour.
Designing sustainably requires foresight and planning from early stages of project design. Building in energy efficient manner and reducing waste will be required to maintain the level of construction and need for infrastructure. What can we learn from lean construction methodologies for the green building revolution?
• Learn about how Green Star and prefab construction can promote occupant wellbeing, reduce waste, and create sustainable and long-term impact
• Discover how you can measure your ROI through sustainable building and construction
• Find out how to integrate sustainable design with lean design methodologies
How can we deliver greater value to our clients?
The Evolution of 3D Concrete Printing
Real Challenges on Modularisation: Research meets Reality
Recent efforts through research have provided the theory and background behind the move to modularisation in this industry, including preliminary tools for implementation. Do the research and tools support reality and, what can you as individual companies do to be “up to speed? Without going through a potential “painful” learning process.
Balancing Project Efficiency with the Environmental and Human Impact
Building and refurbishing in hospitality is a complex undertaking, and requires consideration for both project efficiency, and customer-oriented project management.
