A review of the main forms of offsite timber solutions to assess their key strengths and weaknesses.

Why the built environment should be manufactured from wood.

The construction methods and business model adopted by home builder Facit Homes.

The construction methods and business models adopted by timber structures firm Lowman Timber Frame.

Our panellists from the earlier session elaborate on this vital matter of what forms of timber offsite construction make for a successful built environment as well as business for themselves - after all if you cannot reliably make money you won't be in existence for long.  Coming from different backgrounds, they reflect on what they have seen succeed and fail and draw their conclusions for you to consider.
