Offsite Market Update: May 2021

Published 04th May 21 - by naomi

How can offsite help us deliver Zero Carbon Homes?

Decarbonisation of homes must be a priority if we’re to achieve our climate targets, both in new build and retrofitting, and there is a huge potential for job creation in the sector. How can offsite construction techniques help us grasp this opportunity?

By manufacturing homes and retrofit solutions offsite, environmental pollution and disruption is reduced on-site. Buildings can also be more easily standardised and constructed to the highest energy efficiency standards. In addition, modular construction and design for disassembly means that we can operate more in line with circular economy principles and reduce primary resource extraction.

In the next couple of months we’ll be exploring this topic in more detail across two virtual conferences, free to attend.

The first is in collaboration with our French counterpart Offsite school, Net Zero Carbon Homes – Does offsite construction provide a solution? 25th May, 1-3pm, with live French translation. Register now

On 22nd June, 2:15-4pm, we’re hosting a Business Bytes alongside the Smart Construction Network, Tackling the retrofit challenge through Smart Construction. Register now
