Position Paper 2: What is the role of off-site housing manufacture in a Digital Built Britain?

The second position paper produced by the Housing Network looks at the potential for off-site housing manufacture to address the shortage of housing in the UK.

There has been very little written about how digital technologies are used in off-site housing manufacture: this rapid evidence review outlines the policy background and attempts to establish the gaps in knowledge that will help UK plc capture the benefits of emerging BIM technology, and use these to leverage the benefits of off-site manufacturing in the UK housing construction industry.
