With the housing shortage set to get worse before it gets better, the UK Government, in its latest White Paper, has announced plans to utilise offsite build technology to help build 100,000 modular homes over the course of this Parliament.

So it is a timely co-incidence that a series of masterclass seminars at Ecobuild 2017 will explore the role offsite construction technology will play in tackling the housing crisis and the efficient delivery of infrastructure projects

As part of the event, Ecobuild is partnering with the organisers of the Explore Offsite series of events and conferences to deliver a focused exhibition zone and series of offsite masterclasses.

The Offsite Hub, a three-day seminar programme and exhibition at Ecobuild, will help visitors learn more about the opportunities offered by offsite technology in the future of construction.

Seminars will take place alongside exhibitions showcasing each of the six main types of offsite construction – modular volumetric; steel; timber; concrete; roofing and MEP/pods.

Offsite build in the education sector

With the UK also facing a potential shortage of primary school places, Explore Offsite at Ecobuild will feature the latest innovations in the use of offsite construction to create additional classrooms or add storeys to existing school buildings.

Visitors will be able to see how extensions can be manufactured away from the building and craned into place in a matter of weeks – offering a sustainable choice by reducing vehicle journeys and increasing efficiency.

Martin Hurn, brand director at Ecobuild, commented: “Offsite is clearly the future of construction technology, and it’s happening now. Offsite presents many opportunities for the private and public sectors.”
