This webinar explores the advantages and limitations of modular design and construction.

The webinar recording investigates the recent advances in modular structures and volumetric construction. Case study examples show how to maximise the opportunities of offsite design, while considering fire detailing, weather proofing, and connections.

Common issues reviewed by the National House Building Council (NHBC) will look at the quality control and assessment of the innovative methods used for volumetric construction.

The webinar recording takes a historical look at modular design and construction, before focussing on future opportunities and limitations. The discussion analyses this mass scale approach, while considering current trends, impending innovations and product development.
