Breaking Free: Utilizing Modern,  Sustainable Modular Wall Systems to  Innovate Construction

9:30am - 10:30am - Wednesday


Drywall and studs are no longer the only way to build a wall, new sustainable alternatives are now available. While traditional construction is still an option, the use of eco‐friendly, modular walls offers valuable long‐term benefits to design‐build professionals and the environment.

By breaking away from traditional applications and embracing modular walls, end‐users gain costsavings, garner support in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) efforts, and dramatically reduce a project’s environmental impact. Modern, alternative prefabricated solutions should be embraced to meet design objectives in today’s environmentally‐conscious era.

We will discuss solid green design practices, cost‐benefits and project savings as they relate to modular walls systems vs. traditional drywall applications. We’ll showcase solution examples across various industries including airports, commercial construction, and healthcare.



Topics of discussion will include:


• How modular wall systems can help contractors increase return‐on‐investment (ROI) by reusing material on projects

• How prefabricated modular wall systems can drastically shorten project time and labor costs

• The environmental and health impact of traditional wall construction, and benefits of an alternative prefabricated solution

• The advantages of using sustainable modular wall systems and how they contribute to LEED points
