Offsite construction is primarily based on two key principles: efficiency and quality. The concept of off-site construct is to allow parts of the building to be manufactured in an environment suited for effective production, where, if appropriate, advanced equipment can be used to increase productivity. Further to this, off-site construction improves working conditions by taking construction processes to a clean, controlled environment unaffected by climatic conditions. Ideally as many parts of the building as possible will be finished to as high a level of completion as possible in order to minimise work at the building site.
