Platform Design Programme Ambitions
What are the Platform Design Programme ambitions?
Currently, the majority of buildings in the UK are procured individually, designed conventionally and constructed on site, using traditional skills and materials. However, there are examples of how modern methods of construction are increasingly being used, either through modular or volumetric solutions or different forms of offsite construction. Despite this progress, these solutions are not yet being deployed at scale, not all clients are aware of or use them, nor are the solutions in use always suitable to be deployed across multiple building types.
Through this programme, the Hub will work with industry to identify and co-develop a platform solution that can be designed, manufactured and installed on a structural carrier frame and are able to be used across multiple building types.
