October Modular Construction Summits Slated for Vancouver and Los Angeles


Modular The reality of an expedited schedule and lower costs has made offsite construction a valued building solution for decades. With curiosity about this process at an all-time high as developers turn to the method with growing enthusiasm, the Modular Building Institute will co-host Modular Construction Summits with the British Columbia Institute of Technology and Cal Poly Pomona on October 2 and 4, respectively.

Do modular buildings last as long as stick built? Are they environmentally sustainable? Can they be as attractive as their traditionally built counterparts? While the answer to all of these questions is yes, the summit will provide an opportunity for people to find out exactly why – and get answers on many more issues.

Each event will feature two morning sessions with panels of high-profile architects and builders. In the afternoon, attendees at the BCIT Summit in Vancouver will tour the factory of Britco, and those at the Cal Poly Summit in Los Angeles will visit the Silver Creek Industries manufacturing facilities.

Both events are open to the general public. The Vancouver event will take place at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and the L.A. Summit will be held at Cal Poly in Pomona, California. Registration is $125, $75 for MBI members, and free for students and professors. For complimentary press registration, please contact Tracey Daniels.
