Nic Clark - Q&A
Why do you think the offsite sector is so important to the future of the construction industry?
I think the for the effective implementation of BIM, commitment to H&S, quality and to deal with the general shortage of skilled labour & levels of supervision available on site, offsite is the way forward. The industry needs to modernise.
Which offsite technology do you think will have the biggest impact on the construction industry in the future and why?
I believe CLT will have a huge impact on the construction industry in its response to the housing shortage. It is sustainable, proven, fast, light-weight & not dependant on high numbers of workers to deliver. It provides a big step forward in programme advantage and improvements to site safety.
Why do you think members of the industry need to attend Explore Offsite at Ecobuild?
Read the Farmer Report…..if his choices were to modernise or die, I’d choose modernise !
