The Buildoffsite Water Hub has been set up to provide a focal point to promote the increased use of offsite construction solutions by water infrastructure companies.
A number of water businesses are already making considerable use of offsite construction methods to deliver savings in capital and operating costs. The challenge for the Water Hub is to encourage the use of offsite methods more widely within the water industry.
Initial work has focused on promoting the project and commercial benefits of standard products as an alternative to bespoke and usually expensive and time consuming onsite construction methods.
The Hub is currently developing its work programme for 2017.
For more information on the work of the Hub contact Julie Fraser of Buildoffsite: email@example.com.
A video and presentation from the United Utilities hosted seminar to discuss DfMA at a recent ICE event with particular interest in client expectations with regard to offsite is also available for Buildoffsite members to watch here.
