Aug. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- Houston, TX – Construction IQ, a division of IQPC announces the Modular Construction and Prefabrication North America Summit (, taking place December 10-12, 2012 in Houston, Texas.  The Summit brings together sector stakeholders from oil & gas, energy and power along with design and engineering firms to discuss the efficacy of modular construction.

Flexible and cost-effective, modular construction and prefabrication takes the building burden out of the owners’ hands, allowing for a more efficient and beneficial workspace.  The process of designing and transporting exemplary prefabricated modules has brought benefits each side of the industry, bringing business to design & engineering firms and a stable, economical product to sector stakeholders.

As opposed to the standard “stick-build,” prefabrication and off-site modular construction overcomes inescapable on-site building problems, such as high transportation costs and weather delays.  Modular construction allows for both building and on-site work to be completed simultaneously, cutting costs and expediting the entire schedule.

IQPC’s Modular Construction and Prefabrication North America will provide the latest advances in modular construction, with thorough case studies and discussions identifying the service’s efficacy.  Attendees from both sector stakeholders and EPCs will have the ability to network and share strategies and innovations in a constructive environment.

Modular Construction and Prefabrication North America recently featured a distinguished speaker faculty at its Canada-focused event in March 2012, a list that will undoubtedly be rivaled at this summit:

•   Len Mitzel, Member of Legislative Assembly (Constituency of Cypress-Medicine Hat, Alberta)
•   Juergen Diekmann, Director of Plant Engineering (Siemens Energy, Inc.)
•   Sonja Johanns, Director of Supply Chain (Enerkem)
•   Fred Haney, Senior Director – Design Engineering (Fluor Canada, Ltd.)
•   Paul Murray, Head of Project Development (SNC Lavalin)
•   Allan Tarasuk, P. Eng., President – Construction Group (URS Canadian Operations, Ltd.)
•   Michael Reeves, President (Ports to Plains Alliance, USA)
