The UK's need for more new homes is the biggest opportunity facing the construction sector at this time and offsite construction could soon become critical in forming a practical solution to this crisis. Explore Offsite in the Housing Sector hopes to answer the question: how can offsite construction help?

Housebuilding in the UK is currently at an all-time low

Housebuilding in the UK is currently at an all-time low. It is predicted that a total of 250,000 homes need to be delivered each year in order to tackle spiralling house prices and the critical shortage of affordable homes. This target has constantly been missed – with figures showing that only 141,000 homes were constructed last year.

Taking place on 23 & 24 March 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham, Explore Offsite in the Housing Sector will be a platform for construction clients, architects, engineers and contractors to come together and discuss the latest offsite solutions for housing.

With a fantastic line-up of industry figures confirmed to speak over the two days, including our own Technical Manager Tony Woods, this is an essential event for any professional looking to delve deeper into the liveliest and most promising topic in UK construction.
