Amy Marks Presentation Series: Prefabrication and the future of Australian construction – What the international experience is telling us.
Think you are up to speed with prefabrication? You know about prefabrication of complete homes and apartment modules. That’s one part. Advances in prefabrication technologies and processes have profound implications for project initiation, procurement and how they will best be managed to capture the significant cost, efficiency and quality advantages that will become available.
US-based Amy Marks, President of XSite Modular, advises clients around the world on enabling and optimizing the use of off-site and prefabrication and sits on the Singapore Government’s construction and productivity panel of experts. The key according to Amy is being purposeful about innovation as well as understanding what it means for contracting methodologies, Integrated Project Delivery and a more collaborative shared risk approach. Opportunities and threats are unfolding, and it is not just the smaller players who will be impacted; prefabrication has caught on at XSite client Balfour Beatty Construction – the third largest general builder in the USA with revenues over US$3 billion.
Hear Amy discuss the exciting advances in off-site construction outside Australia before she heads to New Zealand as Keynote speaker at the PrefabNZ CoLab conference. Following her presentation Amy will be joined by Australian industry experts for a panel discussion, then Q&A. In Melbourne, David Chandler OAM for contribution to the construction industry, and Rod Fehring, Executive General Manager, Residential at Australand are confirmed to join the panel discussion.
Join us to learn about the critical drivers and what these changes mean for your business.
