Architectural and construction professionals are increasingly using modular construction technologies in new ways to design, engineer, and assemble projects in the field, resulting in savings and flexibility for the built environment. In fact, the global modular construction market is on a steep upward trend. A recent study by market research firm Reports and Data expects modular construction to grow at a rate of 6.4% per year, with the market reaching $191.62 billion by 2027. Embracing new advancements in modular construction—whether permanent or relocatable buildings—can help owners, architects, and project teams meet the complex goals of incorporating universal design and affordable aging-in-place solutions into a wide array of project types. This webinar will look at several modular construction projects that combine innovative design strategies with the practical case for ADA compliance and accessibility, incorporating quality and safety standards as well as schedule efficiencies and sustainability.
- Explain how modular construction can fit into overall ADA-compliance goals.
- Describe challenges and solutions inherent in modular construction in terms of meeting current accessibility demands.
- Identify product categories that can work with modular construction systems to enhance Universal Design and aging-in-place outcomes.
- Discuss how the highlighted modular construction projects incorporate accessibility, quality, safety, affordability, sustainability, and design flexibility.
