Offsite Construction – The Future of House Building

The housing shortage is a ‘hot topic’ and represents both an enormous challenge and a great opportunity for the construction sector. With five Housing Minsters in as many years, it is now hoped that continuity, with the reappointment Brandon Lewis, will make an impact on the housing deficit.

Featuring speakers from pioneering companies in the offsite construction industry, Explore Offsite is your opportunity to get on-board with current thinking, investigate new technologies and explore new opportunities. Taking place on 07 July 2015 in at National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham – the third in the series of events focuses on the housing sector.
