"Prefabrication and Preplanning Construction"
Presented by Mark Federle, Ph.D., P.E., CPC; Marquette University
2301 York Road
Oak Brook, IL 60523
Prefabrication can save an electrical contractor time and money, but what do you prefab? And how do you tackle the preplanning required to even get out of the gate? This program will discuss tactics to aid those at any step of the prefabrication process in optimizing their preplanning and increase their prefabrication efficiency.
This program is based on an ELECTRI International research report.
Following this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the importance of preplanning
- Identify planning strategies to improve productivity
- Identify activities at each phase of the construction process to preplan
- Utilize the benefits of activities such as prefabrication, lean construction, and building information modeling on preplanning
- Identify tactics that can increase the amount of prefabrication you do
THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY FOR ECA MEMBERS!
