Offsite & Modular Construction

Theatre 3
10:40 - 16:30

The advantages of offsite construction and production techniques - if properly executed - are well documented. Offsite construction offers a mass customisable product that is technically advanced and which can be efficiently delivered and yet it has less than a 2% share of the UK construction market. The Offsite & Modular Construction stream assessed the progress in the last year in this area, the benefits of using the various offsite methods and explore how using offsite construction can enable predictability for on-time and on-budget delivery, with the added benefit of sitting within a circular economy offering social, environmental and economic benefits.
