EXPLORE OFFSITE AT ECOBUILD - DELIVERED
DELIVERED | 07-09 March 2017 at ExCel, London
A ground-breaking exhibition of offsite construction solutions, the largest of its kind ever seen in the UK, was a key component of Ecobuild 2017. Forward-thinking companies that are making the most of the opportunities provided by offsite construction relished the chance to demonstrate their technology within Explore Offsite at Ecobuild.
THE BIGGEST & MOST DYNAMIC OFFSITE EVENT YET!
The UK offsite construction market is expanding rapidly, at more than 35% per annum, and for some sectors offsite technology has become commonplace. However, with an estimated share of just 10% of the construction market, the opportunity for offsite remains phenomenal.
Explore Offsite at Ecobuild gave visitors a comprehensive and balanced perspective on this rapidly evolving sector and featured a wide range of offsite technology from a host of UK and international suppliers, including examples of:
- Framing systems in concrete, timber and steel
- Modular and volumetric systems
- Bathroom and kitchen pods
- Offsite roofing technology
- Pre-engineered building services
- Other complementary offsite technologies and a range of prefabricated building components
OFFSITE TECHNOLOGY MASTERCLASS
Delegates across the three days learnt about the latest in offsite technology developments with expert information and seminars on solving the housing shortage, using offsite technology to construct a more sustainable environment, and how the industry is responding to unprecedented demand through greater investment in lean manufacturing systems. FREE CPD accredited Offsite Technology Masterclasses ran daily throughout the show to offer an independent perspective of the offsite construction sector. Intensive training sessions addressed the drivers and benefits of using offsite construction technology, and provided visitors with the knowledge to successfully apply these techniques. The Offsite Technology Masterclasses will hosted 54 speakers over 18 hours of presentations across 14 sessions, on subjects including:
"Ecobuild always reflects the state of the market, highlighting the most topical talking-points. We have made a major commitment to establishing Explore Offsite at Ecobuild, working in partnership with industry pioneers, Cogent Consulting, to develop a host of complementary activities that will make offsite construction a key attraction in 2017”

"Increasingly, the construction industry is turning its attention to the substantial benefits offsite technology can offer. In order to make the most of what is possible, clients, contractors and industry at large must have up-to-date knowledge of what offsite technology suppliers can offer."
