Offsite Construction – the first choice

Why Offsite Construction is becoming the first choice in delivering high-quality housing

Offsite construction is an established, high-value manufacture and construction method that delivers guaranteed quality, precision-engineered components to meet a variety of standards.
A mainstream and intelligent way to build, it presents cost effectiveness, speed and energy-efficiency advantages from inception to construction, while removing practices that could invite error or inconsistencies.
For residential surveyors, offsite construction offers significant on-site benefits, cost certainty, and outstanding durability and robustness. Based on certified products manufactured in controlled factory environments, it uses modern technologies to minimise construction risk and simplify design.
The construction process at the on-site stage is vastly reduced, making installation easier, reducing the need for trades, removing opportunities for error and enhancing the long-term performance of the projects.
In the UK, timber frame is the largest offsite construction sector; 70% of houses in Scotland are built by this method, which is also on the increase in England and Wales. Given its many advantages, timber-frame offsite construction can deliver home units quickly while maintaining profit margins and equity interests for constructors and investors.
Timber frame also enjoys an unlimited, sustainable material supply chain, giving the potential to manufacture 10,000 homes or units a year, with considerably shorter call-off periods than traditional build methods.

GOLD STANDARD ASSURANCE
With offsite construction currently used for one in five new homes, industry stakeholders know it to be low-risk, durable and exceptional value. Lending and insurance authorities can now balance both perceived and accepted risks for newer offsite construction products through a dedicated guarantee programme.
The Build Offsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) is an industry-leading accreditation scheme underwritten by RICS, Buildoffsite, Lloyd’s Register and Building LifePlans. It guarantees a product’s consistent through-life performance that it will remain saleable and insurable for a minimum of 60 years (more than three times the term of many mortgages) and provides assurance against any form of variability in the system or product warranted.
