Offsite for Everyone

Offsite for Everyone is a suite of learning materials to guide the construction industry in its adoption of offsite construction and further the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).

Learn by job function or offsite process

We recommend resources both by job function and offsite construction process.

Why Offsite for Everyone?

Offsite should be a key in any sustainability strategy. Why?

For us to meet the targets set out in the Government’s 2025 Construction Strategy, we need a shift in behaviour and a shift to further offsite methods of construction.

In order to make the changes needed to meet the 2025 Construction Strategy, all who work in the built environment must have a robust understanding of the fundamentals and benefits of offsite construction.

Organisations and individuals should look to introduce these methods within their own business or job role.

That’s why we created Offsite for Everyone.

What is Offsite for Everyone and how did it come about?

Offsite for Everyone learning materials include a range of full day courses, virtual courses, e-learning modules and videos – all free for anyone to use.

In partnership with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) and National Open Colleges Network (NOCN), and with funding from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), the School developed learning materials aimed at six different job roles:

  • Designers and Architects
  • Procurement Personnel
  • Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants
  • Logistics Personnel
  • Project Managers
  • Site Managers

Construction Industrialisation

The offsite construction process is illustrated in the construction industrialisation wheel. Five key competencies need to be understood if we are to embrace an industrialised approach; design for manufacture & assembly (DfMA), offsite manufacture, logistics and onsite assembly, followed by best-in-class maintenance. These five building blocks are underpinned by eight management skills that are, in our opinion, necessary to drive change.

Offsite Construction Learning Materials

We have developed learning materials to assist the construction industry in its adoption of offsite construction and further the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). Use the following relevant courses to train or be trained and learn the knowledge and techniques that can help to reduce costs, improve performance and sustainability.

The Supply Chain Sustainability School, in partnership with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) and National Open Colleges Network (NOCN) and with funding from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), has creat
