Modular construction is touted as an opportunity to combat rising interest rates and construction prices through greater efficiency, address skilled labor shortages, and reduce jobsite waste. However, some architects and engineers are hesitant to embrace the modular approach because they don’t want their designs to be compromised, and they don’t think it has the flexibility or functionality to execute certain project typologies. Presented by modular design experts from the west coast, this workshop will take a close look at modular wood-frame multi-family projects in particular. First, a Seattle-based architect will examine unique design considerations, detailing and sourcing techniques, and review the advantages and challenges of the design/delivery process. A California-based building enclosure consultant will then offer insights on the building enclosure functions of heat, air, and moisture control in wood-frame buildings, and apply these concepts to the realities of modular construction. Lastly, a structural engineer will focus on unique structural design considerations and constraints associated with modular projects, including load transfer, interfacing with manufacturers, construction sequence coordination, and third-party structural inspections.
