New Offsite category (Sponsored by LHC)
There are a number of factors that are making offsite construction a more attractive solution than ever before. It can help address systemic failures including low productivity, low predictability, low margins, adversarial pricing, lack of culture for collaboration, limited R&D and investment in innovation and poor image.
Therefore, this year the Constructing Excellence Awards have introduced the Offsite category alongside other categories including Project of the Year, Innovation and Sustainability to name just a few.
In the Offsite category, a winning approach will demonstrate a number of the following attributes:
The Offsite category is sponsored by LHC, a leading provider of free-to-use framework agreements used by local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies to procure works, products and services for the construction, refurbishment and maintenance of social housing and public buildings.
