Please join CTBUH Dubai for the United Arab Emirates launch of the Handbook for the Design of Modular Structures. The development of the Handbook is pivotal to the advancement of the modular construction industry, and this event is the first opportunity to learn about the Handbook in the UAE.

The event will provide attendees with insights into important elements of the Handbook and an opportunity to engage with Angus McFarlane, the Chair of the Handbook Committee, responsible for its development. Please note that electronic copies of the Handbook will be provided to attendees.

The Handbook is a project by the Modular Construction Codes Board (MCCB) to provide guidance to the industry on the design and construction of modular structures. MCCB was founded by Professors James Murray-Parkes and Yu Bai from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia with the support of a number of industry partners and the Victorian State Government. It was formed with the aim to provide a code of best practice and integrated solutions for modular construction to industry, government and the community.

Attendees will hear from Angus McFarlane, Structural Engineering Leader, Engineering Excellence Group, Laing O'Rourke, and Craig Moorfield, Head of Engineering, Multiplex Constructions. For more information about the launch of the Handbook, view the event flyer.
