Split into 4 groups, each attendee will rotate around a series of sessions that will walk through upgrading your facility to incorporate cutting-edge technology and expand further your offsite capabilities, spotlight the end-to-end workflow of a complex multi-trade offsite construction project, tour the upgraded facility itself, and incorporate time for an interactive discussion with your fellow prefabrication leaders to discuss how we can help accelerate offsite construction and take the industry to the next level!
Split into 3 groups, each attendee will have the opportunity to walk through the Factory Blue facility, explore some of the work they have been doing to incorporate more complex prefabricated elements in renovation projects, as well as understanding how they have successfully incorporated vertical transportation elements into their capabilities.
