Cost implications of Off-site construction

09 Oct 2019
Modern Methods of Construction Hub
- Hall 9

Dave Robert's research is exploring the many variables that are included in costing up construction activities, with a particular focus on Domestic single family unit house production and the use of alternative methods, again with a particular focus on volumetric. The majority of research carried out to date has shown Offsite construction techniques are not seen favourably within the house building sector when considering cost implications, however the research has mainly focused on production and installation costs. Dave's research is exploring the ‘other’ aspects of costing that will impact on the financial viability of using volumetric techniques as an alternative to traditional methods. The session will deliver the findings to date, mainly based on current literature, and then open the floor to discussion on the possibilities moving forward. The aim of the research is to present a cost model that will enable industry to accurately determine the most cost effective house building solution and allow these to be set against the non-cost related variables such as public perception, land availability and planning requirements etc.
