Abstract

Offsite construction is a game-changing approach that transforms fragmented, site-based construction into integrated, manufacturing-like production. It shows great potential to address the industry’s persistent problems and enhance project performance on multiple levels, but offsite construction is unfamiliar to many organizations and the industry lacks standardized offsite construction practices and guidelines.

Further improvements in offsite construction require changes in the workforce, processes, and technologies to help construction organizations better understand the potential benefits of offsite construction. This book and software tool can help companies develop strategies to better leverage working offsite.
