President of XSite Modular and American prefabrication virtuoso Amy Kulka-Marks is the conference chairman and keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Modular Construction and Prefabrication ANZ Conference. On day three, she will also be facilitating an interactive workshop, which 100% of participants last year said met or exceeded their expectations.
The building industry is stuck in a rut. Profitability is stagnant, and large projects are notorious for being over-budget and behind schedule. Over the past decade, on-site costs have also skyrocketed.
Modular construction and prefabrication provides cost and schedule certainty, while drastically reducing on-site man-hours, by removing significant work from the building site and enabling a concurrent building process. Itâ€™s a building revolution which is quickly becoming an industry standard.
Amy Kulka-Marks is a highly-sought keynote speaker, and has featured at a multitude of international conferences. As a consultant and off-site program manager, she works with clients all over the world to enable the inclusion and optimization of off-site elements into a range of large-scale projects.
“Amy is a dynamic and experienced professional who opened her playbook and treated us like her team. A very valuable experience.”
– Charlie Hargroves, Curtin University.
“Showed great knowledge of how modular systems can work.”
– Tony Stodart, Turner
“Most of these things I walk away with nothing. This was different.”
– Paul Shanks, SteelCAD Drafting
Other key-note speakers include Angus McFarlane from Laing Oâ€™Rourke and Chair of Engineering Excellence, Ben Haldin, Managing Director of Fulcro (UK), and Gianfranco Lucchetti, Hydraulic & Fire Protection Manager, Wood & Grieve Engineers.
Topics for discussion include an analysis of global trends, challenges and solutions; the fundamentals of prefabrication; and increasing productivity and quality through Design for Manufacturing Assembly (DfMA). With Ms. Marks as chairperson, the emphasis will be on interactive, though provoking sessions.
