Increasing offsite housing construction in Scotland: An evidence base to support new policy and systems

  The purpose of this project is to provide evidence of the potential contribution offsite construction offers to address the challenges faced by the affordable housing sector in Scotland. Funding for the project is drawn from the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise. The project is made up of three components: (1) a research project mapping the benefits of offsite construction and the barriers confronting the sector’s potential contribution to affordable housing in Scotland; (2) a study to understand the current and future capacity of offsite construction to overcome these barriers and for the sector to increase the contribution it makes to the provision of affordable housing in Scotland; and (3) a series of co-design workshops with key stakeholders to consider how offsite construction can overcome the barriers the sector currently faces and realize the potential contribution it can make to the future of affordable housing in Scotland.
