Modular construction is touted as an opportunity to combat rising interest rates and construction prices through greater efficiency, address skilled labor shortages, and reduce jobsite waste. However, some architects and engineers are hesitant to embrace the modular approach because they don’t want their designs to be compromised, and they don’t think it has the flexibility or functionality to execute certain project typologies. Presented by experts from both coasts, this workshop will take a close look at modular wood-frame multi-family projects in particular. First, a Seattle-based architect will examine unique design considerations, detailing and sourcing techniques, including a review of the advantages and challenges of the design/delivery process. Discussion will then focus on the largest modular project in Boston to date, The Graphic, which features a wood-frame building over a concrete podium. The project architect and contractor will offer their insights on the design and construction process, pros and cons of off-site fabrication, quality, timeliness, and sustainability.
