Join our modular housing expert panel on March 5th to understand how these volumetric suppliers are mitigating risks in their project deliveries and over coming capacity constraints. Prefabrication is not new to North America and many contractors use some form of offsite construction within their projects today. The panel will also address other key topics such as:
Paul Binotto - Co-Founder and President, My Lane Home Inc.
- Modularization and Prefabrication Forms - Ranging from complete buildings like hotels down to bathroom pods and plumbing assemblies.
- Project Efficiency - When utilized correctly off site construction not only can reduce labor costs and the project schedules but also decrease waste, increase site safety and can reduce onsite congestion.
