Offsite Market Update: September 2021


Published 27th Aug 21 - by naomi

DfMA Overlay to the RIBA Plan of Work

The DfMA Overlay to the RIBA Plan of Work is in the final stages of production and will be launched on the 15th September, at our online conference bringing together contributors and practitioners at the forefront of the industry.

We’ll be discussing key topics arising from production of the Overlay, including:

  • Are we at a tipping point in embedding DfMA as ‘business as usual’?
  • What are the key obstacles to this?
  • Which roles are best placed to introduce DfMA on projects?
  • What are the implications for designers and architectural practices?

Confirmed speakers:

  • Mark Farmer, Cast, UK Government MMC Champion
  • Dale Sinclair, Aecom
  • Connie Longmate, MHCLG
  • Sam Stacey, UK Research & Innovation
  • Jamie Hillier, Akerlof
  • Lanre Gbolade, L&Q
  • And more!
