Mark Farmer to be keynote speaker at Explore Offsite Futures 2016

Mark Farmer, CEO and Founding Director of the Real Estate & Construction Consultancy Cast, is confirmed to speak at Explore Offsite Futures on the 24 November at the NEC, Birmingham.

Mark was most recently commissioned by the Construction Leadership Council, at the request of government, to undertake a review of the UK’s construction labour model. The report under the banner of 'The Farmer Review of the UK Construction Labour Model' and subtitled 'Modernise or Die'- has now been delivered and has focused a great deal of media attention towards the construction industry's dysfunctional training model, its lack of innovation and collaboration as well as its non-existent research and development (R&D) culture.

One of the main suggestions within the report, is that the UK construction industry needs to embrace offsite manufacture, and therefore Explore Offsite Futures is your opportunity to hear directly from the author and the Q&A session will provide answers to your questions about this report.

Mark will be discussing ‘Building a Mature UK Pre-Manufacturing Sector: Implications of the Farmer Review’ at Explore Offsite Futures.
