neUdesign Architecture at the 2019 Offsite Construction Expo

On September 20, 2019 John Magnan and Troy Tiddens of neUdesign Architecture attended the Offsite Construction Expo in Denver, Colorado.

The Offsite Construction Expo is an open forum for anyone interested in the offsite construction industry. The Expo offers a focused presentation of the abilities of offsite construction across all markets. It features exhibits from offsite construction manufacturers and contractors, traditional contractors that have integrated offsite methods, offsite factories, transportation companies, architects, engineers, BIM suppliers, materials suppliers, and consultants of all types of offsite construction processes.

“You may not know it but Boise is kind of a mecca for modular construction,” says John Magnan. “With two major factories in town and several others throughout the valley, there is probably no larger concentration of modular knowledge and talent anywhere in North America.”

John Magnan goes on to say: “That is how neUdesign Architecture got involved in modular design. By working directly with the local factories and hiring staff with factory design experience we have assembled a studio that has the unique skills to develop plans that any factory can build from.”

According to Magnan and Tiddens, neUdesign Architecture’s expertise in modular design brings many benefits and advantages to their clients. “Early engagement with a modular consultant or architect is is key,” according to Tiddens. “Not just any architect or designer has the expertise to design for modular. Knowledge of designing with the end product in mind, known as Design for Manufacturing and Assembly is paramount.”

“Other key considerations when entering into the modular realm,” Magnan continues, “are working with the right team who understands LOD 350 details, the role BIM plays in modular, and understanding what the factory needs from the architect.”
