Explore Offsite Education: conference & exhibition | 18 May 2017 | London
On 18th May 2017, Explore Offsite, in collaboration with the Education & Skills Funding Agency, will hold an integrated conference and exhibition event in London focused on the offsite construction sector.
The event aims to create a platform for construction clients, architects, engineers and contractors to come together and discuss the latest offsite solutions in the education sector.
The conference comes at a time when the government has just confirmed that an investment of c. £2 billion is to be allocated to rebuild or refurbish 277 schools across England.
This marks the second phase of the priority school building programme (PSBP), which presents the opportunity for offsite construction to play a major role to help meet challenging targets. One of the most frequently cited benefits of offsite construction is the speed of construction that it offers, with the time required to construct and commission an offsite building being typically reduced by 50-60 percent in cases where large elements can be prefabricated.
