Delivering better buildings for the healthcare sector

With the mounting pressures on the healthcare sector making the headlines almost on a daily basis, innovative solutions are rapidly required to create more hospital and care home facilities. Offsite construction is being hailed as one of the solutions to resolving the capacity issues within the healthcare sector.

Explore Offsite Healthcare, a one-day conference and exhibition being held at the NEC, Birmingham on the 20 September – will create a platform for clients and their professional advisers, contractors and project managers, to learn directly from industry experts and discuss the latest offsite construction solutions that will help in delivering the building requirements for the sector.

Patient, staff and visitor experience is at the heart of successful healthcare projects, and the speakers will discuss how they have met healthcare provider’s and the NHS Trust’s expectations by delivering sustainable, energy efficient, low-maintenance and cost-effective contemporary building.

Through showcasing examples of the very best of what is being delivered under the Procure 21+ and Procure 22, together with projects outside of these Frameworks – this event will demonstrate how exemplar schemes are being delivered through good supply-chain integration, design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA), digital integration and offsite construction strategies.

This conference and exhibition will present case studies of projects that have used offsite technologies to create new, extended or upgraded facilities – in a sensitive and seamless way – to deliver projects on-time and on-budget.
