Will Prefab Mitigate the Global Building Crisis?
The global population is rapidly growing and urbanizing. Meanwhile, natural disasters and political conflict have displaced millions of people around the world. Architects, engineers, and contractors are facing a monumental challenge to develop enough residential, social, and economic buildings to support the needs of the population.
Fortunately, there’s a new wave of design-build companies working tirelessly to address the demand through prefabricated and modular off-site construction. By bringing architecture, engineering, general contracting, supply chains, manufacturing, and labor together to streamline the building process, these off-site construction facilities are helping the industry build more, better, faster, and cheaper.
Watch Redshift Editor in Chief Kylee Swenson and off-site construction experts in a panel discussion about how they’re transforming the construction industry today. These construction veterans share their challenges and successes in their aim to drive efficiency and enhance quality while creating local jobs, lowering safety risks, increasing profit margins, and—most of all—providing safety and security for people.
Redshift Live is an event series from Autodesk that explores the future of making through inspiring talks and panels with thought leaders in construction, manufacturing, infrastructure, and architecture.
