Blog: Offsite Award – new for the 2018 Constructing Excellence awards

15 February 2018

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:

  • A systematic approach to the implementation of offsite solutions.
  • Tangible benefits delivered by using an offsite approach over and above traditional methods including value against time, cost, quality.
  • Contributed to the commercial demands of the client and sustained the needs of the local community.
  • Provided a unique and innovative environment when benchmarked against other building solutions.
  • Delivered additional USP's against traditional construction methods.

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.

The LHC team offers independent technical advice, procurement expertise and customer support from set up, research, documentation and procurement to supply chain management.

LHC offers dedicated framework arrangements for the most popular building products and services, inclusive of pvc-u, aluminium and timber windows and doors, roofing and asbestos works and services, as well as frameworks for energy efficiency and refurbishment, off-site construction of new homes and school maintenance and extensions.

The awards are open for entries until the closing date of the 5th of March 2018. It is free and easy to enter the awards – just register here and download the entry forms.
