Happy new year! Read on for a quick breakdown of our recent work in the world of Offsite.
Offsite Leadership Group
The Offsite Leadership group convened last month to discuss plans for the year ahead as well as the social value implications of offsite construction, a topic we will be looking into more over the coming months. To find out more, please view the minutes here. We also welcome new partner organisations to the leadership group – so if you think it’s for you, please get in touch.
DfMA Overlay Shorts
All of the DfMA Overlay short videos we produced in association with RIBA have now been released! These provide short introductions to key themes and case studies in the Overlay including procurement, digital, and the implications for architectural practices, and can be viewed on our DfMA webpage. We hope you find them useful and share widely with colleagues.
UKGBC Circular Economy Surveys
As part of UKGBC’s Circular Economy programme, two surveys have been launched: an industry survey gathering data on the carbon impact of circular economy principles, and another targeted at product manufacturers assessing the status quo of circularity and to identify the barriers to circularity they are facing. We encourage any members to complete these, especially those who have implemented circular economy principles and measured/estimated whole life carbon impacts in recent projects. Both surveys close on the 17th January.
