offsite construction ()

Themes

Offsite Construction
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...

Projects

Structural Optimisation of Timber Offsite MMC
COCIS has recently completed a 2 year research programme funded by the Engineering Physical Sciences Research Council to derive and optimise novel technical solutions and innovative offsite closed panel products. This research has been integrated within engineering analysis software for use by...
