Session: Leveraging Volumetric Off-Site Construction: Good Samaritan Hospital Case Study

John Buongiorno | Director, Modular Division, Axis Construction Corp.

Jim Gabriel | General Manager, MODLOGIQ

 

 

By implementing off-site construction, architects, owners, and construction managers are streamlining the building process using innovative techniques that provide cost certainty, schedule acceleration, and a significant reduction of on-site construction activity. Recently deemed “socially-distancing” for construction projects, this methodology ensures the owner and architect’s design intentions are met through a collaborative effort between all stakeholders. Two veterans of commercial modular construction, John Buongiorno of Axis Construction Corp. and Jim Gabriel of MODLOGIQ, will illustrate how, via a unique design and construction process, volumetric off-site will continue to define the future of healthcare construction. Attendees will be armed with the knowledge required to implement this alternate project delivery method on future projects through a discussion of lessons learned, implementation best practices, and collaborative success recently experienced on the Pediatric Emergency Room addition at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York.

Session: Factor in the Factory, Coordinate with Engineer, and Confirm with the Contractor: A Collaborative Approach to Project Delivery for Factory Built Housing

Nickolos Gomez | Studio Director, Multi-Family Housing, Lowney Architecture

 

Following the conventional model, a project starts with design, followed by engineering, and finally construction. But in the world of volumetric factory-built housing, constraints due to an expedited project timeline and unique construction methods require the design and engineering phases to happen simultaneously. For FBH projects to be successful, a holistic approach with input from engineers, factory, and site contractors is needed. This presentation by an FBH architect, Nickolos Gomez from Lowney Architecture, explores how to manage complex details and installations while avoiding common pitfalls. Hear lessons learned, told through the lens of actual project case studies.
