Planning, Scheduling and Estimating Methods for Modular Projects Online Course (OT-202)


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 planning, scheduling, and estimating methods. The methods introduced in this workshop will complement and enhance the Construction Industry Institute (CII) best practice for industrial modularization. We will detail modular planning and scheduling methods, including the differences compared to stick-built executions and review the estimating tools that can be utilized for a modular project. This training workshop is intended to be interactive.

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

  • What estimating methods and tools are available for a modular project?
  • How to estimate a modular project?
  • What is required for planning and scheduling a modular project?
  • How to plan and schedule a modular project?
  • What are the differences for scheduling modular executions when compared to stick-built executions?
