Best Use of Off-site Technology in Affordable Housing
Offsite construction techniques have come a long way over the past few decades and today’s precision engineered factory-built homes are constructed to the highest standards. As housing demand continues to outstrip supply offsite technology could hold the key to solving the housing crisis.
This award seeks to highlight affordable housing developments which have been built using offsite construction methods to the highest standards. We want to see evidence of reduced build times and costs compared to other construction methods as well as how offsite construction has impacted on noise, waste and safety onsite. Nominations should detail how the use of innovative technology has impacted on the build process and the finished homes. Entries should also demonstrate the environmental credentials of the properties. This award applies to affordable housing schemes which have been completed within the past 18 months or are due for completion within the next six months.
