Off-site manufacturing is a term used to describe a process where components of a building are assembled in a factory prior to arriving on the building site. This modernised method of construction has been embraced by many construction projects in order to improve the efficiency process in which buildings are delivered. Working on the site might create delays when waiting for security clearance for worker or lorry drivers and problems can arise from limited access and space. Off-site manufacturing delivers better uniformity in finish, testing and validation of product quality. Working off-site allows construction to progress in an organised environment free from adverse weather conditions, which can reduce the risk of delays and improve the quality control of components. However, along with many considerable benefits off-site manufacturing also brings risks.
