Willmott Dixon is pioneering off-site manufacturing techniques nationally after winning awards for its prefabricated construction of the University of Warwick’s Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building.
Global sustainability concerns are driving construction companies to look for alternative, technology-driven ways to assemble buildings.
By manufacturing 50% of the building off-site and coordinating operations using Powerproject by Elecosoft, Willmott Dixon Construction Manager, Nick Preedy, reduced site deliveries by nearly 40%, lowering the building’s carbon footprint.
The project has unlocked a whole new revenue stream for the company, which is now growing its off-site manufactured projects to promote greater sustainability in construction.
The Net Zero World initiative is driving construction companies to look for alternative, technology-driven ways to construct off-site manufactured buildings. Willmott Dixon is paving the way for environmentally-friendlier processes which is evidenced in the successful erection of the University of Warwick’s 7,000 square metre, five-storey Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (IBRB) in 2020.
