The Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) has launched a new webinar series designed to share knowledge and improve industry efficiency, productivity and speed to market through pre-fabrication and off-site construction. The free webinars feature topics across the broad spectrum of off-site construction techniques, technologies and tools. Architects, engineers, contractors, owners, code officials and other industry stakeholders will gain valuable insight into the opportunities offered by off-site construction and how to effectively implement off-site construction techniques in future projects.

Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 2)
Following an introduction to the spectrum of off-site construction opportunities by OSCC Chair Sue Klawans, Linc Moss of Ramtech Building Systems covers "Part II: Project Execution" of our “Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction” webinar. Mr. Moss delves into the means and methods as well as stakeholder scopes of work needed to execute strategies throughout the building construction off-site and on-, including final drawing submittal and approval, zoning and permitting, process, scheduling, fabrication, quality assurance, health and safety, site development, delivery, set, finish, and commissioning of a project ready for occupancy. Listen to the presentation (MP4).
No webinars will be conducted in September, but we hope you will join us for in-person education during the Off-Site Construction Expo, September 21-22 in Washington, DC. The Off Site Construction Council will hold its meeting on September 22 from 1:00 to 4:00.
Precast Concrete Off-Site Construction: Techniques & Case Studies
July 26, 2016, 12:00 pm ET/9:00 am PT
July 28, 2016, 3:00 pm ET/12:00 pm PT
Hosted by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute
The National Institute of Building Sciences 2014 Off-Site
Construction Industry Survey found precast concrete structural
components were the most often used elements of off-site construction.
With the looming shortage of skilled workers forecast to exceed 2
million by 2017, prefabrication may become a necessity and a more common
method of project delivery. The benefits include shorter construction
schedules, greater degree of predictability in cost, reduced material
waste, reduced coordination of trades and reduced risk.
This webinar will provide an overview of the most common systems of
precast concrete products, cover basic design criteria and capabilities,
and explore case studies showing how precast was used to solve diverse
design and construction challenges with off-site construction.

Getting the Most out of Off-Site Construction (Part 1)
Following an introduction to the spectrum of off-site construction opportunities by OSCC Chair Sue Klawans, OSCC Secretary Laurie Robert explores what it takes to choreograph and execute an effective permanent modular construction project, from the significance of early engagement to the end goal of early occupancy. Hosted by the Modular Building Institute, this webinar begins with a holistic view of the permanent modular construction industry today, followed by a look at some of the strategies and best practices needed to launch a successful project for all stakeholders.
