Symposium on Modular and Industrial Construction Methods for Creating Low-Carbon Buildings

Tuesday, May 16, 2023 (9:30 AM - 12:00 PM) (PDT)

Description

By concentrating building activities in controlled factory environments, modular and industrial construction methods offer many advantages compared to traditional construction. The potential benefits include faster and less disruptive on-site construction, more efficient use of materials and labor, better quality control, and improved working conditions for tradespeople. Industrialized processes are being rapidly adopted across the building industry, generating numerous design and technology innovations. Today, many building industry stakeholders are focusing on how to leverage these benefits to create more sustainable, low-carbon and healthy buildings, and to meet aggressive goals for rapidly reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. This symposium includes expert industry practitioners who are involved in developing and implementing industrialized buildings, and researchers who are leading advanced studies to better understand the potential of these innovations for decarbonizing the built environment. This event is free and open to the public, and co-sponsored by PG&E and UC Berkeley’s Center for the Built Environment.
