The Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Modular Construction

Wednesday, 05 August 2020 | Online Event

The wider development and construction industry now recognize that the adoption of offsite or modular manufacturing for on-site assembly is a key part of the larger construction productivity agenda.

The COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing regulations are further pressurizing conventional methods of construction where neither quality of construction, safety, or the well-being of construction crews can be compromised. The challenge, then, is to speed construction while reducing inefficiency, using the optimum combination of technology and human ingenuity.

In this virtual discussion, top experts share innovative approaches to construction automation, factorization, and modularization in the tall building industry.

CTBUH Board of Trustees Member, Shonn Mills, Global Director, Ramboll, lead this panel discussion.

This event is the third in a series of digital events organized by CTBUH about adapting the urban realm to a post-pandemic world. Watch the recording of the first event here and the second event here.
