LCIA WA Event: Modularisation – Opportunities, risks and lessons learned

August 24, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+8


Modularisation – what are the lessons learned with the use of locally and offshore procured modules in the recent resources boom, and what are the risks and opportunities associated with their use on future projects?

An industry participative and thought provoking discussion in which we explore the challenges faced in Australia with modularisation. If we are to not only survive but prosper in a challenging global environment, then we have to face the hard facts and dig down into our well-founded and proven Aussie ingenuity. The panel discussion will also explore how we as an industry break down internal barriers, and what needs to be done to level the playing field.
