Layout Methods for Modular Projects Online Course (OT-203B)


Industrial Modularization has been proven on a global basis to reduce cost and provide cost and schedule certainty. Other benefits include reduced key material quantities, improved safety and quality and reduced labour risk. The objective of industrial modularization is to move site labour offsite to a controlled environment. This is achieved by locating the piping, electrical, instrumentation and controls on to modules (blocks) that are contained within an approved transportation size.

Course Overview

The objective of this training workshop is to review modular layout requirements and methods. The methods introduced in this workshop will complement and enhance the Construction Industry Institute (CII) best practice for industrial modularization. We will review what considerations are required for an optimum modular layout. This training workshop is intended to be interactive.

Participants of this workshop should leave with an understanding of the following:

  • What is required to develop an optimum modular layout?
  • What are some layout methods used for a modular design?
  • How to address access and egress in a modular design?
  • How to address operation and maintenance in a modular design?
