The inefficiency, waste and environmental damage of construction sites used to be grudgingly accepted. But today, modular construction has emerged as a way of controlling quality, enhancing safety, and reducing the environmental footprint of bringing tall buildings to life. Several approaches, using varying degrees of pre-assembly and a range of material and labor management techniques, have now gained acceptance and are increasingly being adopted worldwide. This workshop brings to light some of the best-practice examples, explores the aesthetic, code and labor obstacles that still remain, and examines the potential of new practices still being developed.

When: Saturday, 20 October 2018 8:00am-12:00pm
Venue: JW Marriott Marquis, Sheikh Zayed Rd, Dubai, Al Safa Meeting Room 1 and 2
