What is Off-Site Construction? Primarily you are shifting your project delivery method from the traditional on-site construction process to an off-site process requiring advance collaborative planning and an integrated team approach. The panel offered the perspectives of three key stakeholders in an off-site construction project: the architect, the general contractor and the modular builder. From owner engagement and design to project execution, they discussed the challenges and opportunities team members may face when choreographing a project – getting it started on the right path and keeping it there.
