IG Elements is continuing to invest in offsite efficiency to help house builders meet ongoing challenges of labour availability.
Skills are an essential element in house building, in order to provide the quality and efficiency essential for a successful business.
The government has now injected £22million into the Construction Skills Fund, which it hopes will loosen the skills shortage stranglehold over the next couple of years,
However, IG Elements believe the reality on the ground is that there is currently still an acute shortage and anticipation of future Brexit supply pressures.
In the face of these challenges, most house builders have already engaged with some type of offsite system, while others are pushing further down this route to reduce their reliance on skills onsite.
Having experienced the advantages of removing complex detailing from site, builders are now discovering the additional benefits which include; enhanced health and safety plus reduced waste onsite.
IG Elements is a fine example of an entry point into offsite products which can be adopted speedily into a build, with the minimum amount of disruption whilst still making a big impact on the build’s quality.
IG Elements has made a major investment in new modern methods of moulding, which will help increase quality and volume.
Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) is a closed-mould process for manufacturing high performance composite components, aimed at increasing manufacturing efficiency and the reduction of waste.
This major investment will allow house builders to enjoy the key benefits of offsite, including build quality, enhanced energy efficiency and a reduction of onsite risks to the health and safety of staff.
IG Elements offers the house builder a range of offsite manufactured products, helping to reduce the reliance of onsite labour, speed up build times and provide cost certainty.
In a tough market, first impressions count and offsite components can add considerable kerb appeal to volumetric housing.
