Offsite Academy


The Offsite Academy is a series of informative, interactive half-day masterclasses exploring the principles, technologies and applications of offsite construction. In collaboration between LHC, Explore Offsite and leading offsite construction consultancy Cogent Consulting, masterclasses will be hosted in the newly commissioned Offsite Innovation Centre on the BRE’s Innovation Park in Watford.

Designed to engage a wide range of potential clients and specifiers looking to embrace the benefits offered by adopting offsite construction techniques, the masterclasses are specifically aimed at construction clients, construction professionals (architects, surveyors, engineers), housebuilders, registered providers, education authorities, NHS Trusts, contractors, building product manufacturers and anyone who needs to improve their knowledge of offsite construction techniques.

Creating a dynamic and interactive learning experience

The first of its kind, the offsite masterclass series offers you the opportunity to learn about the very latest offsite construction advances from a team of highly-experienced specialists who live and breathe the industry.

Featuring carefully-chosen guest speakers, each half-day masterclass will examine in depth a specific sector, technology or related topic, with real-life case studies bringing the subject to life. A bespoke open forum will give you the chance to ask questions and gain insight into others’ experiences and solutions, and you will even be given the opportunity for a free one-to-one consultation to discuss more complex issues bespoke to your project or business in complete privacy. A maximum of 25 delegates per masterclass will be accepted to ensure that interaction is maximised.
