On every building project we consider which technologies are most suitable to meet the client’s brief and help achieve the project aims. Off-site technologies play a key role, and our extensive, unbiased knowledge helps select the most appropriate solution.
Offering a range of savings, including time and money, off-site fabrication is gaining greater use. We have helped develop a number of systems including Grupa Buma’s Free-Dom steel framed volumetric system and Kingspan Offsite’s Freeframe LSG (light-gauge steel) wall panel system, and have worked on a range of buildings that incorporate off-site fabrication.
We have also worked on highly innovative hybrid building projects using off-site technologies such as Lingham Court, Lambeth, which incorporated hot-rolled and light-gauge steel including loadbearing bathroom pods and panelised cladding.
