Free PGE&E Webinar: Symposium on Modular and Industrial Construction Methods for Creating Low-Carbon Buildings, May 16, 9am-12pm
Event Description

Industrialized processes are being rapidly adopted across the building industry, generating numerous design and technology innovations. Today, many building industry stakeholders are focusing on how to leverage these benefits to create more sustainable, low-carbon, and healthy buildings, and to meet aggressive goals for rapidly reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

This symposium includes expert industry practitioners who are involved in developing and implementing industrialized buildings and researchers who are leading advanced studies to better understand the potential of these innovations for decarbonizing the built environment.

The objective of this course is that at the conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Cite examples of the benefits of modular construction compared to traditional wood frame construction.
  • Show familiarity with a unique precast structural system that integrates hydronic tubing and other building systems in factory-built units.
  • Describe the implications of modular building methods on the total embodied carbon of multi-family housing.
  • Give examples of how modular construction methods can lead to lower energy use for buildings in operation.
