Quantifying the Benefits of Offsite Construction

Join us at this free launch Webinar for CIRIA's new good practice guide C792 Methodology for quantifying the benefits of offsite construction produced in association with the Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology at the University of Cambridge. The guide serves as a call to action to transform the way the construction industry assesses project performance, opening the door to evidence-based comparisons and data driven decisions to establish best-practice in the industry.

At present there is no industry standard methodology for assessing the benefits of off-site techniques against traditional construction practices. Most assessments are made through the client’s tender process on a case by case basis. This guide proposes a methodology to enable easy comparison between construction approaches, making it possible to keep consistent records across projects and identify all the possible benefits available.
