Modular Construction Austin | 27th - 28th October 2021
AT & T Conference Center at the University of Texas, Austin, Texas

OVERVIEW

The combination of emerging construction technologies, shifts in the economy, loss of skilled workforce in the industry and the increased cost of skilled trades have made the rapid growth of modular and prefabrication construction all but inevitable. With the continuing growth and evolution of the construction industry, companies must stay up-to-date if they want to remain competitive.

The modular construction market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.9% from $112.4 billion today to $157 billion by 2023. Right now, about 3% of construction in America is modular and factory built and projected to reach 10% over the next five years due to the rise in demand for complex structures at affordable rates, rapid urbanisation, and industrialisation.

ASSOCIATE SPONSOR

Genda is building the first digital construction manager. We leverage field data and use AI to automate construction management and make sure projects meet their milestones. We automatically collect field labor data with our IOT network which requires no preparation or maintenance. This data is combined with other common sources to map the construction process, identify bottlenecks and streamline day-to-day operations so field managers can focus on what they should do instead of what they could do.

Research shows 35% of construction professionals’ time is spent (over 14 hours per week) on non-productive tasks (mostly figuring out the current status); in 2018 , these tasks cost the industry more than $175B. Genda knows where and when any activities happen on-site, putting construction managers in the right place at the right time.
