Offsite Technologies

The Offsite Hub is an online information centre dedicated to keeping the world of offsite manufacturing and technology connected. Offsite and precision factory-controlled methods, products and systems are contributing to some of the most efficient and sustainable parts of the built environment and are increasingly recognised as a way to provide a new generation of buildings and are a critical element in easing the UK’s housing crisis.

Offsite manufacture removes much of the construction process from the construction site, leading to a number of efficiency and environmental benefits, including reduced onsite labour, shorter construction timescales, better health and safety and less material-intensive activity. The reduced onsite work – often saving weeks on overall project times – delivers schemes quicker resulting in reduced overheads and better returns on investment for clients. The quality-controlled factory environment also means less waste with less product and onsite faults. 

There are many different technologies that provide the benefits of factory-controlled manufacture and these are driven by cutting edge digital developments such as CAD/CNC, Building Information Modelling (BIM) software and use of Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) to provide new dimensions to building design.

If you are unfamiliar with offsite technologies and the way materials are used we have provided a handy overview of the common systems available. Find out more below:
