BSRIA sponsored the MEP (mechanical electrical plumbing) and POD Technology Award at the Offsite Construction Awards (6th March 2018) at London’s ExCel venue
Showcasing the very best of what the UK construction industry has to offer, the Offsite Construction Awards recognised the overall expertise in offsite construction through landmark projects, influential people, material and manufacturing excellence and celebrated the best in precision building design and delivery.
Offsite manufacture has been around for four years and aims to remove most of the construction process away from the construction site.
The awards honoured outstanding examples of prefabrication and factory-based methods, products, systems and disciplines that increasingly strive to develop a sustainable, streamlined and cost-effective way to deliver a better built environment.
Peter Tse, Business Manager, Sustainable Construction Group, BSRIA, said:
“I was honored to have presented the award for the best use of MEP and POD Technology. These awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise innovation in both design and construction, pushing the boundaries of both sustainability and cost efficiency in delivery of our built environment.
SES is a worthy winner and the Quadram Institute is a new multi-million pound state-of-the-art food and health research and endoscopy centre that will open mid-2018.
The Institute will work with industry to become a leading international hub for food and health science, combining scientific excellence and critical expertise, to deliver better patient care while accelerating innovation.”
The awards have now added the following categories for 2018:
- Housing Project of the Year
- Best Use of POD Technology
- Product Innovation Award
- Offsite Pioneer of the Year
- Engineer of the Year
The new categories provide more opportunities for industry specialists to showcase their achievements.
