New Offsite Opportunity for Rotherham Metropolitan District Council

24 August 2018 , John Smith’s Room at Rotherham Town Hall, The Crofts, Moorgate Street, Rotherham, S60 2TH

 

 

 

Buildoffsite is working with Rotherham  Metropolitan District Council to engage the offsite construction community and attend a Meet the Buyer Event on the 24th August.

10 – 12.30

Rotherham Council has ambitions to significantly increase the number of new homes built in Rotherham.  To help achieve this, the Council is piloting the use of modern methods of construction as a swifter and more efficient way to deliver new homes.

The Council will be seeking tender returns from housing providers using MMC to deliver two pilot projects:

  • The first will consist of 10 small ‘pod’ type homes, across two sites/two lots, suitable for single person households requiring affordable accommodation, and
  • The second consists of 12 bungalows, across three sites/two lots, suitable for older residents/residents with mobility needs

It is possible for developers to choose to bid for one or more of the lots.

This is identified as a pilot scheme which the Council hopes to roll out as a larger programme, depending on the success of the pilot.

The new homes will be added to Council stock, and will be developed on Council land.

These opportunities will go to tender this month and will be evaluated mid/late September.

The event will be held at the Council Office:

Home builders 2020 – who are the players and innovators?

03 October 2018 , The National Composites Centre, Bristol BS16 7FS

    

The impact and value of using offsite construction for low rise building such as garden towns, villages and cities and larger scale developments. 

The gap between supply and demand currently sits somewhere between 100k and 150k homes pa. How can offsite solutions capture all of, if not the lions share, of this requirement.

Support for the offsite sector has grown considerably over the past 12 months and at a disproportionate rate compared to previous years where growth was being achieved at a steady, if not at times frustrating, pace. Buildoffsite is working with its members (from all walks of the industry) to help the sector understand its attributes and limitations at the same time as enabling both the public and private sectors to enter the market –  not only well prepared and well informed, but with a network of like minded organisations who can support them in the process.
