The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee is currently carrying out an inquiry into offsite manufacture for construction. The committee is considering the potential benefits of off-site manufacture for construction and any drawbacks and obstacles to its wider use. It also consideres how Government policy, particularly around public procurement, might need to change to encourage economically and environmentally sustainable practises in the construction industry that could facilitate off-site manufacture.
The Constructing Excellence Offsite Manufacturing & Technology Group provided a written response, whilst two of our co-chairs, Mark Farmer and Phil Wilbraham are providing evidence in person to the committee.
