Offsite Design Management

Ensuring that use of innovative, cost effective offsite construction techniques including Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) are exploited at the design stage – where it really makes a difference.

We have unrivalled experience in the everyday, practical design issues of the production of bathroom pods, bedroom and kitchen modules, framed solutions, floor cassettes, panelled roof constructions, pre-engineered building services, plant rooms, dry-foundation systems and many more.

We work with project teams to evaluate alternative systems, materials and methods to optimise the onsite assembly process. By identifying any future issues in the design stage, we can help save both time and money further on in the construction process.

We can ensure Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is integrated at every opportunity during the design and development path. DfMA will allow you to deliver quality projects at a faster pace, whilst simultaneously lowering costs. We work with your design team to maximise opportunities for offsite construction, ultimately creating a more controlled and efficient working environment. This is combined with the increased productivity generated by maximising activity in a controlled factory environment.

If you are currently using offsite technologies or if you wish to enter the offsite manufacturing market, we can provide a design service covering product design, structural design, building envelope and MEP design.

We can help you with:

  • Feasibility Studies
  • Supply Chain Investigation
  • Concept Design Studies
  • Value-engineering
  • Design Team Co-ordination
