Exciting New Research into the Benefits of Offsite Construction

Buildoffsite and Ciria launch new research.

At present there is no industry standard methodology for assessing the benefits of off-site 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.

Buildoffsite is working with CIRIA to provide a summary report that enables comparison of the benefits of off-site construction with more traditional techniques.

The project’s key objectives will be to:
To identify common project drivers in more detail; approach to risk, innovation and procurement
Identify the benefits of off-site techniques against more traditional approaches by collecting data in a format that will enable comparison
Enable clients, designers, specifiers, contractors and others to quantify for themselves the benefits of off-site construction techniques when compared to typical construction approaches.
