Offsite construction risk management

Join this webinar to learn how to approach offsite construction risk.

Working in conjunction with Buildoffsite, the voice of the offsite construction industry, CIRIA will host a webinar covering the opportunities and challenges around managing offsite construction. We will hear from Buildoffsite members and will also get the perspectives from clients, suppliers, accreditors, and brokers.

Managing Construction Risk Community of Practice
Launched in 2020, CIRIA’s Managing Construction Risk Community of Practice (CoP) brings together practitioners from the construction and insurance sectors with the objective of improving the management of risk and financial performance.

  • Offsite construction risk management
