NAFIS Presentation

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