Electrical Engineering and Design for Modular Projects Online Course (OT-203G)


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 the modular electrical engineering and design 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 the electrical differences between traditional stick-built designs vs. modular designs and what electrical considerations are required for modular designs. This training workshop is intended to be interactive.

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

  • What collaboration methods are required for electrical engineering and design?
  • How the electrical design is developed for modular designs?
  • What are the modular electrical design differences compared to traditional stick-built designs?
  • What are the electrical engineering and design requirements for modular designs?
