Join us for a roundtable discussion to address the future of prefabrication in New York City, with a focus on how prefabrication practices can be applied to small-scale urban infrastructure projects to have a large public-realm impact. Speakers will touch on issues related to design and procurement, engineering and construction management, and site selection and logistics of prefabricated projects in New York City.
We are at a critical moment in the implementation of modular, prefabricated, and design-build processes in New York City. How can the current conversation surrounding these topics be expanded to address issues related to the public realm? How can the public and private sector join forces to unpack the key roadblocks currently in the way?
