Join Procore and Construction Executive for an in-depth conversation on offsite construction, including: what it is, what it isn’t, how it’s done and, ultimately—the impact it has for teams and companies.

Offsite construction, or what’s sometimes referred to as “constructing,” is more than just prefabrication. Hear why this method is important not just to to general contractors, but to owners, insurance companies and industry trades. Don’t miss this conversation as we’ll cover the benefits and impact that offsite construction has on safety, efficiency, quality and even labor shortages.

You’ll hear:
• Stories and statistics around this rising industry trend;
• Insider tips, from navigating contract terms to taking BIM to the next level with offsite design plans; and
• The impact in crucial areas like safety, quality, cost overruns and labor.
