This Forum will present four unique and growing construction methods. Each of these methods is experiencing major growth and present changes in exposure for underwriting builders risk insurance. The forum will examine Cold-Formed Steel Framing and Mass Timber/CLT on Thursday, November 5th and Accelerated Bridge Construction and Modular Construction on November 12th. You can register for the full conference or just one of the dates, not individual sessions.

COLD-FORMED STEEL FRAMING
Thursday, November 5, 2020
2:00pm-3:30pm ET
A durable, reliable and cost-effective option for mid-rise building projects. It involves a manufacturing process where metallic-coated sheet steel is roll-formed into products such as studs, joists, headers, truss members and other components. Cold-formed steel framing has been used successfully in building projects greater than 10 stories in height.

MASS TIMBER / CLT
Thursday, November 5, 2020
3:45pm-5:15pm
Mass timber is a manufactured product first developed in Europe in the 1990s. The term is often referred to as Cross Laminated Timber or CLT and encompasses all manner of large-scale beams, truss systems, or load-bearing panels. Mass timber construction has grown in popularity due to its long life, fire resistance and lower carbon impact.

ACCELERATED BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
Thursday, November 12, 2020
2:00pm-3:30pm
Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) is an important tool in the engineer's toolbox to address the issues associated with infrastructure renewal. ABC has become a widely accepted way to deliver rehabilitation and replacement projects across the country, where large portions of a bridge are constructed offsite or adjacent to a site and installed in as little as a weekend. ABC significantly reduces road and lane closures, traffic delays, and environmental impacts.

MODULAR CONSTRUCTION
Thursday, November 12, 2020
3:45pm-5:15pm
Modular construction is the process where buildings are made up of individual sections (“modules”), constructed in an off-site, controlled manufacturing facility and assembled together at the final building site. This building method can take half the time of traditional ones, while it’s controlled manufacturing and quicker installation can reduce builders risk exposures.
