Title: Offsite construction: an introduction

Ref Code: GG56
Authors: C Stirling

Abstract1: Building all, or some components, of buildings off site in a factory has been a feature of construction over many generations, and in some cases has been adopted extensively. In the post-war period, prefabricated construction unfortunately acquired negative connotations. However, with developments in lightweight, high strength materials and modern production techniques, prefabrication has much to offer today's construction industry. This Good Building Guide introduces the techniques and methods of off-site construction and suggests how these might be adopted within the modern construction process.
