Event – Offsite Construction: A Modern Solution for Scotland’s Housing

Add to Scrapbook

Offsite construction offers the technical opportunity to deliver Scotland’s housing at speed, to a high quality and in a safe working environment, while energizing the local economy. How can we facilitate its adoption? While the technical rationale for offsite construction is well established, what does Scotland need to do to aid housing delivery on the ground?

The key aim for this event is to accelerate offsite housing delivery in Scotland by

  • Breaking down actual and perceived barriers to the adoption of offsite construction methodsthrough linking professionals involved in all aspects of housing delivery.
  • Demonstrating the opportunities offsite housing presents and demystifying the skills required.
  • Celebrating built examples of innovative housing in the north of Scotland.

The event will take place in Inverness to showcase offsite construction innovation in the Highlands. There is also the opportunity to tour manufacturing facilities and built examples the day before the event.

The event has been developed as a collaboration between Architecture and Design Scotland and Forestry Commission Scotland.

This event has been postponed from 26/9/18. To receive updates on the revised date, please contact events@ads.org.uk to register your interest.
