Live Course: Behind the Resource: The Modular & Offsite Construction Guide

Register for this live course to learn more about how modular and off-site construction can contribute significantly to the environmental sustainability of your projects, including reducing waste and operational energy use.


The new AIA Modular and Off-Site Construction Guide provides an in-detail explanation of the modular approach. It includes the opportunities for modular design, as well as the pitfalls designers should be wary of. In addition, the document is laced with case studies that exemplify successes and obstacles that design teams should avoid.

This live course will address the biggest take-aways from the Modular and Off-Site Construction Guide. We will take a deeper look into the benefits and challenges of modular construction and strategies for successfully designing a modular building. This session will also include insights into The Graphic, the largest modular multifamily residential development in Boston, MA and one of the case studies featured in the document.

Date: May 8th, 2019 at 3pm ET.
