Offsite Manufacturing - Laing O'Rourke

Offsite Construction encompasses a broad range of practises to do with the planning, design, manufacture and assembly of elements away from the site where the final project will be put together.

This innovative methodology is believed to support rapid, efficient construction and has been highlighted by the Construction leadership council as a major theme to concentrate upon in order to build greater efficiency, skills and growth in the industry.


Project: A methodology to quantify the benefits of offsite construction

This project aims to explore a methodology for quantifying the benefits of offsite construction by conducting a systematic review of projects that have adopted off-site methods to assess the actual delivered outcomes and compare these to similar projects constructed using conventional methods.
