Transcript

  • 1. The Modular Building Institute is pleased to present members of NAFIS with an opportunity to:
    RETHINK CONSTRUCTION
  • 2. CONVENTIONAL “WISDOM”
    CONVENTIONAL CONSTRUCTION:
    Over Budget
    Time Delays
    Unsafe Jobsites
    Materials Waste
    Inconsistent Quality
    Unpredictable Workforce
    Days of Rework
    Bad Weather
    Equipment Theft and Damage
  • 3. It’s time to Rethink Construction:
    24-story modular high rise currently under construction in the UK
  • 4. NAFIS Member Challenges
    Availability of funds – “making do with less”
    Projected increased student enrollment due to DoD restructuring
    Maintenance and upkeep of existing facilities
    Continued “erosion” of tax generating property by federal agencies
    (Summary: D.C. is giving you less money, more students and taking more tax generating property)
  • 5. How MBI can help meet your challenges
    What is “modular construction”
    Analternative, off-site project delivery method
    used to construct code-compliant buildings in a quality-controlled setting
    inless time
    withreduced impact on the environment
  • 6. Modular Construction
    All of these advantages typically result in
    COST SAVINGS
    for school districts due to a more efficient process, fewer labor hours,
    & fewer materials wasted
  • 7. Process, not Product
    Think of modular as a “process” of construction, not a “product.” Using this process, you can build all types of facilities, including…
  • 8. temporary classrooms…
  • 9. and permanent campuses
    . . . or permanent.
  • 10. Advantages of Modular
    Shorter Construction Schedules
    Ability to deliver to remotelocations
    More environmentallyfriendly
    Construction off site=safer campus
    Quality controlled construction setting
    Regional fit, feel and looks to match environment
  • 11. Shorter Construction Schedules
  • 12. Remote Locations? We deliver anywhere!
  • 13. Environmentally Friendly
  • 14. And its not just MBI saying it…
    “The life cycle expectancy of modular construction is the same as conventional, and in a world where sustainability is gaining momentum each day, there are also several basic principles intrinsic to the modular construction process that make it more eco-friendlythan conventional construction.”
    American Institute of Architects (AIA) -“External Issues & Trends Affecting Architects, Architectural Firms, and the AIA” -February 2008
  • 15. BD&C Survey Results – October 2008
  • 16. Rethink Construction
  • 17. Is this Modular?
  • 18. 100,000 Sq Ft School in PA12 months ahead of schedule
  • 19. California – Project Frog
  • 20. Two Story, Masonry Exterior
  • 21. High Performance Classrooms
  • 22. The Classroom of the Future?
    Designed by Perkins +Will
  • 23. Student Designed
  • 24. Summary
    Faster
    Greener
    Less Cost
    More Predictable
    More Flexibility
    Remote Locations
  • 25. Closing Thought
    “There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction.” – Sir Winston Churchill
    RETHINK CONSTRUCTION!
