Cracking the Code: Unlocking the Benefits of Off-site Construction

Industrialized construction practices, such as off-site manufacturing, have demonstrated an ability to reduce build times, lower costs, improve quality and performance, reduce environmental impact, create safer working environments, and increase overall construction productivity. Although this practice is far from new, challenges persist around code fragmentation, state and local inspections, and general education. In this session, we will hear about how DOE is supporting this practice through the Advanced Building Construction Initiative, the development of new off-site construction standards, and how manufacturers are finding creative ways to streamline code compliance.
