Sep 19, 2014 -- Earlier this summer, you received a request to participate in a survey on your use of off-site construction techniques and technologies. If you have already completed the survey, thank you. If you have not already done so, there is still an opportunity to share your experiences and support advances in the industry.
A week ago, Engineering News Record published an article on the expanding interest in off-site construction. The article highlighted the work of the Off-Site Construction Council and the survey currently underway. To allow readers of the article an opportunity to contribute to the survey, we have extended the deadline through October 15.
The Institute’s Off-Site Construction Council is a knowledge center on issues of off-site construction and productivity in the commercial building sector. The council is a research, education and outreach program focused on the creation, management and transfer of off-site construction knowledge. As part of that role, the Off-Site Construction Council is conducting a survey of representatives from across building disciplines to understand the current extent of projects that use off-site construction technologies and practices, their successes or shortcomings, and the opportunity to address industry needs in utilization of these techniques.
Your answers to this short survey will help advance our industry and support achievement of high performance buildings. Please also consider passing it along to your colleagues. The survey will close Wednesday, October 15, 2014, end of business day.
Thank you in advance.
