Adoption of offsite construction is growing, and calls for change – in particular Mark Farmer’s report Modernise or Die – have prompted CITB to publish their research report Faster, Smarter, More Efficient: Building Skills for Offsite Construction.


With offsite construction muddying the waters between manufacturing, construction and engineering, there is a need for change in behaviour, attitudes and greater emphasis on digital skills.

The report identifies the different functions required for successful implementation of offsite, the skills that are needed, the gaps in training provision and what the CITB and industry can do to address these challenges.
