In 2019 UK government departments will favour bids for construction contracts that offer offsite manufacturing. Gavin White and Andrew Mather of Ramboll offer guidance to civil engineers on how to make projects ‘offsite ready’.
Offsite construction will only deliver value if its constraints are fully understood and lead the design approach.
These constraints can be of manufacture, handling, transportation, lifting or installation, or project site-specific criteria.
Each part is important and should not be overlooked to avoid expensive bespoke solutions late in the project.
The constraints of offsite construction must also be considered holistically by all engineering disciplines. Acoustics, daylight assessments, sustainability criteria, facade details and more must all be developed closely with the architectural, structural and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) designs from an early stage.
Furthermore, the technical design must align with the procurement, cash flow, supplier availability and client’s funding mechanism.
