Best Use of Technology: Offsite and Modular

This may across any sector within the built environment but must emphasise the benefits offsite and modular techniques deliver for the project in terms of efficiency, safety or improved outcome.

- Demonstrate how offsite and modular techniques are having an impact on delivery of the project or benefitting the client in terms of outcome
- Explain how this new technology is an advance on the conventional approach
- Describe the research, development and innovation strategy that led to the development of the offsite and modular solution.
- Explain how the offsite and modular solution could be scaled up and your ambition for its wider use
Entries are free and you are able to enter several innovations in one category or enter as many categories as you see fit, having reviewed the specific category criteria.
