Rehau offers offsite guidance
While offsite construction is not a new concept, it has recently seen a resurgence within the UK construction market – and one that is expected to continue. In line with this, REHAU has produced a new dedicated guide on the subject aimed at M&E contractors and building services engineers to help them negotiate offsite construction and get the best out of this way of working.
The guide, titled ‘An M&E guide to offsite construction for building services’ can be downloaded free from the Rehau website. It provides an insight into the reasons for the increase in popularity of the technique, which include the influence of government policy, the residential housing crisis and emergence of built-to-rent. Advice is also provided on the importance of embracing and adapting sooner rather than later and how this will pay dividends in the long run.
With many potential users being members or affiliated to the main industry bodies, such as CIBSE, BESA and BSRIA, the guide explores the current viewpoint of each of these organisations as well as highlighting the reasons for adopting the techniques on a range projects and what they can deliver.
Drew Clough, product manager for Building Solutions at Rehau, says: “In recent years we’ve seen a massive increase in the amount of building services projects adopting offsite construction techniques. As such, we felt it would be appropriate to give engineers the benefit of our extensive experience of working in this way and put together a guide to assist them.”
