1 The Modular Building Institute is pleased to present members of NAFIS with an opportunity to: RETHINK CONSTRUCTION

2 CONVENTIONAL WISDOM CONVENTIONAL CONSTRUCTION: Over Budget Time Delays Unsafe Jobsites Materials Waste Inconsistent Quality Unpredictable Workforce Days of Rework Bad Weather Equipment Theft and Damage

3 Its time to Rethink Construction: 24-story modular high rise currently under construction in the UK

4 NAFIS Member Challenges Availability of funds – making do with lessAvailability of funds – making do with less Projected increased student enrollment due to DoD restructuringProjected increased student enrollment due to DoD restructuring Maintenance and upkeep of existing facilitiesMaintenance and upkeep of existing facilities Continued erosion of tax generating property by federal agenciesContinued erosion of tax generating property by federal agencies (Summary: D.C. is giving you less money, more students and taking more tax generating property)

5 How MBI can help meet your challenges What is modular construction An alternative, off-site project delivery method used to construct code-compliant buildings in a quality- controlled setting in less time with reduced impact on the environment

6 Modular Construction All of these advantages typically result in COST SAVINGS for school districts due to a more efficient process, fewer labor hours, & fewer materials wasted

7 Process, not Product Think of modular as a process of construction, not a product. Using this process, you can build all types of facilities, including…

8 temporary classrooms…

9 ... or permanent. and permanent campuses

10 Advantages of Modular Shorter Construction Schedules Ability to deliver to remote locations More environmentally friendly Construction off site=safer campus Quality controlled construction setting Regional fit, feel and looks to match environment

11 Shorter Construction Schedules

12 Remote Locations? We deliver anywhere!

13 Environmentally Friendly

14 And its not just MBI saying it… The life cycle expectancy of modular construction is the same as conventional, and in a world where sustainability is gaining momentum each day, there are also several basic principles intrinsic to the modular construction process that make it more eco-friendly than conventional construction. American Institute of Architects (AIA) -External Issues & Trends Affecting Architects, Architectural Firms, and the AIA -February 2008
