Backed by the Government, modular buildings are offered as the magic bullet to push the construction industry into the 21st century. During the webinar we will unravel the advantages promised by this building method and ask whether factory-built buildings deserve to lose their unfortunate reputation.
We will go back to 1066, the time of the first recorded modular buildings, then look at the various forms they have taken since, as well as looking at recent projects in the UK and overseas. Then, we’ll briefly look at the health, safety and welfare implications, as well as potential cost/time savings (although no crass statistics), and importantly some basic design principles.
The webinar will finish with a glance at modular’s future – what’s next and how does offsite fit into the demands of the future?
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Join the ICE and ICSI for the seventh lecture in the 14th Brunel International Lecture Series, which will shine a spotlight on equitable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure challenges in South Asia.
This is an opportunity for Technicians to gather online to discuss ways in which we can help ourselves, each other and the ICE to provide ongoing learning and experience in the wide world of civil engineering.
