What now for SMEs
Build Off-Site for Manufacture & Assembly
These challenges for developers further emphasise the role for Off-Site DfMA (Design for Manufacture & Assembly). They also point up the need for greater collaborative ‘partnering’ between architects, builders and manufacturers. The greater speed, accuracy and quality that can result from manufacturing components in a dry, controlled factory environment gives builders a much better chance of achieving improved on-site build quality AND controlling costs.
While resistance to the change to DfMA has been the norm, the wish of most UK Builders to deliver excellent customer service and top notch homes is now driving an increasing number to choose Off-Site for their developments. Also, as ‘OffSite Hub” note, architects and designers are moving toward DfMA, something w have been encouraging for over 20 years. The emergence of LA Developers will only speed up this process.
