This Members’ Forum will focus on offsite construction, pre-manufactured solutions, and industrialisation. It is open to all national members of Constructing Excellence and by invitation to members of their supply chain who wish to influence the future work of Constructing Excellence at a national level in this arena.
In his review of the UK construction labour model entitled Modernise or Die published in October (#FarmerReview), Mark Farmer identified industrialisation and delivery through pre-manufactured methods as key in many sectors to addressing our ailments of low productivity, low predictability, low margins, adversarial pricing, lack of collaboration & improvement culture, lack of R&D and investment in innovation, and poor image.
In this forum we wish to develop a programme to support the implementation of Mark Farmer’s report, and in particular to inform members’ strategies for high-productivity pre-manufactured propositions.
Speakers will include:
Mark Farmer, CEO at Cast Consultancy and author of the Farmer Review:
Darren Richards of Built Environment Hub on the current state of the offsite market
Richard Crosby, Partner, Blacc Consulting LLP on the challenges of pre-manufactured solutions
Simon Reid, Managing Director and Richard Daw of Scape’s Lungfish business on their model in the education sector
Members are invited to nominate key players from their demand or supply chain who would value from participation in the event – and subsequently from joining Constructing Excellence to be part of our movement for change.
In @keithdwaller latest opinion piece in @infra_intel he explains why government and clients must ask for and value the skills, solutions, products and methods that deliver better #construction outcomes #transformingconstruction #IndustrialStrategy
