Building Better: Hopes for the Panelized Construction Industry
Alison Moynihan, Project Manager & Energy Consultant; Foard Panel

Everyone wants to invent an easier, cheaper, higher quality way to build; and panelized or modularized construction looks like it has the potential to provide that dream. Unfortunately, like most inventions, it is not the idea that is powerful; it is the details (and the people) that actually make it work. Panelized or modularized construction comes in hundreds of different forms and offers multiple potential benefits, but it also has its difficulties. This presentation will clarify what the challenges are and what some of the current systems offer.
