The next Buildoffsite Rail Hub Meeting will be held on the 26th of April. At it we will present the latest Buildoffsite DfMA guide for Bridges and Viaducts produced with input from the group. We will also look at what we can do to support the London Underground Step Free Access Programme and how offsite can help deliver the vision outlined in the WSP report “Out of Thin Air, building above London’s rail tracks”. It will be a very interactive session, looking for ways of helping members  to collaborate to offer greater client value. Spaces are limited so we advise prompt booking to ensure a place.

Rail Hub and HS2 Workshop

27 - 27 April 2018 , CIRIA,Griffin Court 15 Long Lane London, EC1A 9PN

Open to members and non members

HS2 Limited, a member of Buildoffsite, has asked us to help them explore new ideas and address some challenges in relation to viaduct designs. To this end we shall hold a workshop to connect HS2 with potential supply chain members and develop a collaborative approach to help delivering 21st century designs for the viaducts required by the high speed line.

The workshop will be looking for ideas that can address the aesthetic, durability, programme and whole life cost aspects, in addition to the need for safety and buildability. Four viaducts will be used as examples in the workshop to highlight the challenges that the HS2 team is facing and to help the supply chain to think how they can better support HS2’s expectations. They will also provide insight into how HS2 may assess and compare options.

The event is open to all potential suppliers of viaduct construction systems, including concrete, steel and composites, whether they be members of Buildoffsite or not. With limited space at the venue we may need to limit attendance to one person per organisation: If you would like to register multiple people; please ensure the lead person is clearly identified.

For more information please contact kate.abley@buildoffsite.com  or phone Kate on 020 7549 3306

Irish Embassy Event London Housing-What Next

03 May 2018 , Irish Embassy, 17 Grosvenor Place, Belgravia, London SW1X 7HR

London Housing – What Next?

Time: 3.45pm – 7.00pm

An invitation only high level knowledge and networking session jointly presented by Buildoffsite, Enterprise Ireland and Invest Northern Ireland. Hosted by Ambassador Adrian O’Neill

 Rising to the challenge

The population of London is growing at a rate unseen for more than 70 years. There is already a significant shortage of decent, affordable homes and the situation is deteriorating. The London Mayor has called for an annual programme to construct 66,000 new homes against the current record programme of round 46,000 and for 60% of these to be affordable. The big questions for this session are how can the industry respond to the challenge and how can offsite construction methods contribute to the delivery of a step-change increase in new homes across all tenure types?

There will be a welcome by His Excellency Mr Adrian O’Neill, Ambassador of Ireland
