Event description

Description

To mark the 10th anniversary of the RIBA Gulf Chapter and in recognition of the recent signing of the MOU between Dubai Land and RIBA, RIBA International are programming a special series of events and iniatives for members.

We are delighted to be able to invite you to a one off talk by leading expert in Modular construction, Ben Derbyshire (RIBA Immediate Past President), on 'Homes for a Sustainable Future' - Steps towards resolving crisis in the built environment.

Modular construction is still in its infancy in Dubai but the industry is changing fast. As Dubai is becoming increasingly urbanised and population density is increasing, contractors are struggling to build at a suitable pace. This makes modular construction (as well as 3D printing) very attractive.

Also onsite storage is sometimes difficult so modular construction as well as just in time delivery of construction materials are viable areas for growth in Dubai.

Ben will share a brief history of prefabrication in housing, leading to the current generation of modular offsite manufacture as practised by HTA Design LLP. Compelling evidence will be presented to demonstrate the particular contribution in terms of predictable performance in quality, sustainability, user satisfaction and investor confidence offered by modular offsite construction with a summary of international best practice.

Book now to secure your place.
