Science and Technology Committee (Lords)
The deadline for written submissions has now passed. Oral evidence ongoing.
The Committee is conducting an inquiry into off-site manufacture for construction. The inquiry will consider the potential benefits of off-site manufacture for construction and any drawbacks or obstacles to its wider use. It will also consider how off-site manufacture might contribute to improving productivity within the construction industry and how it will fit in with the Construction sector deal announced by the Government. It will examine how Government policy, particularly around public procurement, might need to change to encourage economically and environmentally sustainable practises in the construction industry, which could facilitate off-site manufacture.
