Explore Offsite Housing


Explore Offsite Housing, which will take place at the NEC, Birmingham, on the 10th and 11th of April, will present guests with a variety of approaches and in-depth analysis and discussions on the issue of the shortfall in housing stock.

As offsite manufacturing methods have been identified by the government and the wider construction industry as a catalyst for change, one way to drive growth is taking advantage of the benefits of new technologies. During the two-day event, technology leaders will discuss the growing opportunities that the housing shortage presents for offsite construction.

In addition, guests will find out how migrating construction from the building site to a quality-controlled factory environment will accelerate the building process, increase productivity and create a new generation of high quality housing stock.

Official figures were released at the end of 2017 that showed an increase in the number of new homes in England by more than 217,000 in 2016. This represents the highest level of net additions since the recession and it is the first time in almost a decade that the 200,000 milestone has been reached.

The market need and the political will signal a real opportunity for a step-change in the adoption of offsite construction methods. Moving the construction of houses into factories enables the build to take place both efficiently and economically, making the national shortage of traditional site-based skills, less of a concern.

The Explore Offsite Housing conference and exhibition will provide a fantastic opportunity for members of the construction industry who want to tap into the huge opportunities on offer across the offsite construction sector. The event format provides a dynamic and interactive learning experience for all visitors through presentations and a wide array of exhibitors. Tickets cost £225 + VAT for the two days or £125 + VAT for one day, including entry to the conference and exhibition, free parking, lunch and refreshments.
