Overcoming the difficulties of building innovative construction systems: An alternative approach to mob-handed meetings with the insurers

01 March / 10.15 - 11.00

Why is it so difficult to get innovative construction systems built, including some timber-based systems?  And what can we do to tackle this?

Relatively standard timber frame and SIPs constructions have been built in the UK for many decades, with lots of experience and expertise gained along the way.  The market is growing and any obstacles presented can generally be overcome.  But this is not the case with more recent innovations where gaining traction is so much harder.  And this at a time when government and many others are strongly encouraging the use of offsite, sustainable and innovative techniques to drive up quality and speed of construction.

Understanding this and working out how to unlock this problem is extremely important.  There is little point discussing the need for using more sustainable and / or innovative offsite construction techniques if there really isn’t a realistic route to achieving their acceptance in the market.

Endless meetings with insurers and regulators seems to have become the norm – without great results.  Rupert will suggest a different way to tackle this issue with the intention of stimulating some debate between the audience and panel guests.
