Methodology for quantifying the benefits of offsite construction
Join us for this free launch event for CIRIA’s new good practice guide, Methodology for quantifying the benefits of offsite construction, produced in association with the Laing O’Rourke Centre, University of Cambridge. The new guide serves as a call to action to transform the way the construction industry assesses project performance – opening the door to evidence-based comparisons and data driven decisions to establish best-practice in the industry.

At present there is no industry standard methodology for assessing the benefits of offsite techniques against traditional construction practices. Most assessments are made through the client’s tender process on a case by case basis. This may not provide for an easy comparison between approaches on a particular scheme, identify all the possible benefits that are available or act as a record for future projects.
This event aims at enabling clients, designers, specifiers, contractors and others to quantify for themselves the benefits of offsite construction techniques when compared to typical construction approaches.
