Designing for Offsite - Interoperability of systems in housing and education

Date: Thursday 5 September 2019
Time: 09:30 - 12:30
Location: Hawkins Brown, 159 St John Street, Clerkenwell, London, EC1V 4QJ

A barrier to the adoption of Offsite is the way that different manufacturers have different systems that don’t work with competitor systems. This makes it very hard for a client to de-risk the use of a single supplier.

This workshop has been established to discuss these challenges and take on board the experience from the education sector where McAvoy, Elliott and Bryden Wood have been working collaboratively to tackle this issue. Speakers at the event will share their experiences, what they have learnt and then we will participate in a facilitated discussion where we look at:

  • What do designers have to do differently to ensure choice of offsite manufacturer by clients
  • What are the key blockers to designing for interoperability of solutions?
  • How do we get manufacturers to work together?
  • What is the role of the client?

Attendees to include: Architects, Offsite Module Designers and Manufacturers, Clients, Main Contractors.
