Buildoffsite Visit NI
|The Northern Ireland-based McAvoy Group, leaders in modular construction, has helped host a two day fact finding visit to the Province by leading members of the Buildoffsite Organisation, a UK-wide group that promotes the benefits of offsite construction techniques.
The visit, organised jointly by Buildoffsite and Invest Northern Ireland, included a tour of McAvoy's Lisburn premises in a bid to showcase best practice in construction methods and provide member companies with the chance to explore opportunities for potential collaboration and strategic business development.
Offsite construction is being viewed increasingly as the preferred option for delivering health, education, commercial and other buildings across the UK and Ireland because of the right first time quality available through the assembly on site of precision made factory components with much greater certainty of out turn cost and predictability of build programme.

Richard Ogden, Chairman of Buildoffsite said: "Northern Ireland has a significant manufacturing tradition and this heritage is reflected in the strength and expertise of local product and service suppliers.
"The local industry is very supportive of the increased role for offsite construction solutions in creating an innovative and competitive construction industry, delivering high quality buildings and structures in the UK and in export markets."
Buildoffsite is an alliance of clients, developers, designers, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, government, advisors and researchers from all over the UK and Ireland.
