Buildoffsite works to deliver against the above pledges in its Manifesto through a range of activities, programmes and initiatives designed to support change and deliver maximum benefit to members:

Events & Networking

The Buildoffsite events programme is designed to drive industry engagement, share knowledge, enable collaboration and present opportunities, across a range of topical and insightful webinars and events, including quarterly member meetings.

Relevant events offer CPD to support member colleagues.

Industry Conferences & Webinars: Themed key headline events throughout the year with industry guest speakers, presentations, discussions, panel Q&A and project showcases. These include partnering in The Offsite Show, the UK’s leading show for the sector, launching publications and reports, project events, industry stakeholder workshops and dissemination, policy-led events, and bespoke working groups and meetings.

Meet the Buyer & Meet the Supplier events: Buildoffsite facilitates the introduction, networking, and collaboration of supply chain, specific to project and buyer requirements. Buildoffsite assists with supply chain identification, new project design specification requirements, outlining a compliant go to market strategy and ensuring supply chain preparedness.

Built Environment Group

Our Built Environment Group outlines challenges to the sector and drives a proactive and productive conversation to enable improved understanding and address barriers, working towards developing the knowledge and tools necessary for the evolution of the ‘intelligent client’. The role of the Built Environment Working Group is to support clients, contractors, manufacturers, and product suppliers participating in the delivery of buildings and infrastructure by providing advice to enable a shift from traditional development and construction models to greater use of pre-manufacturing unlocking the potential of industrialised construction.

Sector Working Groups

Offsite solutions and options for the Built Environment are incredibly diverse therefore the Working Group will include Sector Focus Groups for members to identify with.

The focus groups will take all aspects of new-build, refurbishment, and repurposing into account in the following sectors:

  • Residential – Houses, Flats, Hotels, Hostels, Single Living Accommodation & Prisons.
  • Commercial – Offices, Retail, Leisure & Industrial.
  • Non-Commercial – Healthcare, Education, Justice, Defence & Infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure – Road, Rail, Sea & Air.
  • Utilities – Water, Power, Communications & Gas.

Knowledge and Insight

Through dedicated projects identified by industry, bespoke contracts and member driven challenges, Buildoffsite collaborates to produce guidance, reports, and industry responses to policy. Buildoffsite aims to increase capacity across Clients and industry through bringing together sector working groups and delivering tangible outputs to support the Manifesto.

New technologies & Manufacturing site visits

Buildoffsite gives members the opportunity to host Discovering Offsite Tours at their premises. This provides an opportunity for members to promote products, services and project achievements to other members and invited guests. These events are a great platform for knowledge sharing and highlighting best practice.

Quality Assurance & Accreditation

The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) is a risk-based evaluation which demonstrates to funders, lenders, valuers, and purchasers that homes built from non-traditional methods and materials will stand the test of time for at least 60 years.

Access to new opportunities, funding & grants

Buildoffsite shares opportunities from our network, stakeholders, and government where we can collaborate and work as a community to achieve our seven pledges.
