Elements Europe has participated in a Construction as Manufacturing Workshop hosted by the University of Cambridge at the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction.
Alongside Professor Duncan McFarlane from the University of Cambridge and Joe Thornton of Cast, Kevin Arthur Director at Elements Europe headed up a session on off-site manufacturing. Kevin addressed the challenges volumetric production faces.
Kevin talked about planning, funding, warrantee and design coordination attributed to pre on-site works as well as the challenges in the pre-manufacturing stage namely detailed design, specification approval and procurement. Finally he talked about challenges faced with information transfer, amendment requests, logistics and installation of a project.
Kevin Arthur commented “It was an excellent day with a great collaboration of industry experts sharing their knowledge and thoughts on their off-site construction experience.”
