Setting-out for modern methods of construction – a companion guide (CON170) This project seeks to develop an additional companion guide to deliver the next in a series of ‘Setting-out’ procedures with regard to modern methods of construction /offsite manufacturing to maximise the benefits and minimise tolerances associated with these methods of construction. Greater accuracy of measurement on site will enable construction projects to more effectively exploit the potential benefits of off site manufacture and synchronised, lean construction. Pan-European infrastructure for management of marine and ocean geological and geophysical data (Geo-Seas) (CON177) This project aims to build and deploy a unified marine geo- scientific data infrastructure within Europe that will affect a data grid. Design for movement in buildings (RP977) This project will replace TN107 Design for movement in buildings, first published by CIRIA in 1981. Mapping carbon initiatives (RP920) This project aims to develop a simple web-based database that signposts carbon and energy-related initiatives relevant to the built environment.
