Greenwich council is presently looking for a single ‘turnkey’ provider to design and build new properties using the offsite homes construction model under a new deal valued at £320m.
Offsite construction, which is growing in popularity across the UK, is the process of planning, designing, manufacturing, and assembling a building at a location other than the final installation site. It is usually carried out in a factory to support a faster and more efficient property construction.
The contractor that obtains the job in Greenwich will be tasked with carrying out feasibility studies and putting schemes together throughout the entire design phase of the project. One of the required duties will be obtaining full planning permission from the local authority.
The selected company will also be responsible for all stages of the offsite homes construction process and undertaking all site construction needed to deliver the new properties.
