2018 Offsite Awards – winners announced

Held during Ecobuild on 6th March – it really was standing room only at the annual Offsite Construction Awards. With the heightened interest in new and innovative building methods – the organisers were expecting it to be a sell-out event, with over 400 industry leaders and innovators gathering to celebrate the great and good of offsite construction.

Host for the evening, leading offsite expert, Darren Richards, Managing Director of Cogent Consulting said: “What a great success – the calibre and quantity of the entries this year clearly demonstrates that offsite technology is pushing the boundaries of construction and manufacturing innovation. I would personally like to thank everyone who entered the awards, as well as the valued sponsors and judges – without their support, this event would not be possible.”

The annual Offsite Construction Awards, which are rapidly being established as a highlight of the construction calendar – are a platform to showcase innovation, celebrate best practice and recognise overall expertise in offsite construction. The Awards feature a shortlist of exceptional landmark projects, influential people and manufacturing excellence in the dynamic arena that is offsite construction.

With over 200 exemplary entries packed full of pioneering projects, innovative products and inspirational people – this year’s independent panel of judges had an onerous job selecting the winners.

The prestigious ‘Winner of Winners’ Award, which is given for the highest scoring entry across all categories – was presented to PCE for Project Capella – an £80m 18,000m2 biomedical research laboratory for the University of Cambridge.

Darren Richards concluded: “A huge thank-you to all entrants and congratulations once again to the 2018 Offsite Construction Awards winners.”

The winners include leading industry innovators and projects that demonstrate excellence in the application of offsite technology:
