Does offsite construction offer a credible solution to addressing the need for more housing, improved quality and better value?

The benefits of offsite construction and MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) speak for themselves – quality control, speed, control of waste, safer factory process when compared to on site to name but a few. Whilst offsite is very much part of the current industry agenda, all too often it seems we revert to traditional methods of construction. What do we need to do to change this cycle and get a much wider adoption of offsite across the industry?

This webinar will discuss:

  • How critical is it that as an industry we take on board the benefits of offsite and challenge the way we design and build?
  • How are organisations such as the AIMCH – Advanced Industrialised Methods for the Construction of Homes – helping to accelerate adoption?
  • Where does offsite sit when we look at the perfect storm of increased regulations and legislation, skills and materials scarcity and a closer scrutiny on quality, competence and performance?
  • Should we accept that more offsite assembly of selected components and systems, rather than whole house, is a route to adoption and a best of both worlds approach?
  • Is adoption of offsite and MMC at a level we expect it to be?
