Off-Site Construction Council Releases Results of Industry Survey
May 28, 2015 -- The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) conducted a survey in the fall of 2014 to gain an understanding of how the U.S. construction sector is using off-site construction techniques and technologies. The report compiling the results of that industry survey is now available for download.
A total of 312 participants from around the country responded to the survey. The respondents came from across the building industry, representing the diversity of stakeholders involved in the decision making and implementation of off-site construction. They included architects, engineers, contractors and construction managers, subcontractors and owners/developers.
Here are some of the key findings from the Report of the Results of 2014 Off-Site Construction Industry Survey:
The OSCC is using the results from the survey, along with case studies from effective projects, to inform development of an Off-Site Construction Implementation Guide. The Council also plans to conduct additional surveys, including one to be issued in the near future that will look into the kinds of digital tools the industry is using to assist implementation of off-site construction.
