The Code Council showcases off-site construction solutions at the 2021 World of Modular Annual Convention and Tradeshow
Association highlights the benefits of off-site construction, addressing resources to housing affordability and building sustainability

Washington, D.C.— The International Code Council family of solutions joins hundreds of modular construction professionals from around the world at this year’s all-digital World of Modular Convention and Tradeshow hosted by the Modular Building Institute (MBI).

The Code Council and its family of solutions provides multiple resources to help building safety professionals and manufacturers understand the benefits of modular, or off-site, construction and will highlight these resources at the event. These resources include a suite of standards the Code Council and Modular Building Institute are developing to help advance the use of off-site construction, expected to be released later this year, and an introduction to off-site construction regulatory requirements for manufacturers outside the U.S.

“The building industry faces multiple challenges including housing affordability and building quality and sustainability”, says Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “The Code Council offers several solutions to support the safe and efficient use of off-site construction to address these challenges. Through our commitment to the modular construction industry, we are proud to continue participating in World of Modular this year.”

As one of the key sponsors of the event, the Code Council and NTA will participate in the following breakout sessions during the World of Modular all-digital event:

  • Karl Aittaniemi, Code Council Director of Standards Development will host a presentation on “Previewing the off-site construction standards”
  • Ryan Colker, VP of Innovation at the Code Council, will help lead “A Discussion with State Industrialized Building Programs”
  • David A Tompos, President, ICC-NTA, will hold a presentation on “Coming to America: Complying with regulatory requirements”
