At the upcoming 6th Annual Modular & Precast Construction Conference, the keynote speaker will be President and Founder of XSite Modular, Amy Kulka-Marks, an industry thought leader who was appointed by the Government of Singapore to their International Panel of Experts on Construction Productivity.
Apart from her riveting and high-energy keynote presentation, Ms Kulka-Marks will be leading an unmissable full-day interactive workshop. The morning session will explore the off-site continuum, and impart key principles for developing off-site elements. The afternoon session will then cover Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), and analyze real world examples and strategies for designing for a manufactured world.
Emerging new information in the form of case studies, surveys and analyses of project budgets and schedules are all now revealing what off-site experts have been saying for years â€“ the benefits are real, extremely impressive, and readily available.
The prefabrication and modular industry is fast growing, and today almost all construction projects contain some degree of off-site manufacture. Of particular interest is the current charge toward a holistic approach, led by Ms. Kulka-Marks and XSite Modular. Only by applying a comprehensive strategy, are the full benefits of prefabrication unleashed.
Amy Kulka-Marks is a highly-sought public speaker and presenter, and she has just finished at a prefabrication conference in Australia that broke all manner of attendance records. Along with the XSite team, she travels the world sharing her expertise on everything from optimizing prefabrication plants, construction projects worth billions of dollars, and facilitating company-wide changes in mindset.
“Most of these things I walk away with nothing. This was different.”

-Brett Evans, Kids Under Cover.
