ON DEMAND: A conversation with an experienced cold-formed steel (CFS) crew, a builder (fabricator), a structural Engineer, and an architect. Participants will be given a deep-dive into a mid-rise project which was built with CFS as the primary structural element and employed the practice of panelization as a method of construction (or offsite construction practices). This will be a panel discussion focused on the lessons-learned, relationships and efficiencies provided by the use of offsite practices from multiple points of view.
- Introduce the panelization process by way of an overall overview of the project description, timeline project, alternative scenarios, and budget implications.
- Identify the roles and relationships that exist in the case study project, featuring an architect, builder, structural engineer and panelizer.
- Develop an intricate perception of the role the design integration of panelized systems play on the impact of the timeline of construction.
- Describe their main reason for opting for a panelized or offsite practice project from the point of view of each role, as opposed to a traditional site-build.
