Experts in Offsite

The alignment of market need and political will is clear and compelling, signalling a real opportunity for a step-change in the adoption of offsite construction methods. Through maximising offsite fabrication and onsite assembly – onsite construction is minimised, mitigating skills shortages and optimising the speed and quality of delivery.

Offsite technology is hailed as the solution to resolving some of the most challenging problems facing the construction industry, including the shortfall in the housing stock. Through the application of advanced offsite construction techniques, reduced construction times are attainable – allowing scheduled occupancy and early use of key facilities.
