Viewed at its best, this announcement is about leveraging the government’s significant buying power to support the modernisation of the construction sector and an investment in high-quality design and increased performance. On the other hand, it could increase the “race to the bottom” mentality.

It has been demonstrated that these modern materials can speed up the build process and reduce costs.

A New Way of Thinking About Housebuilding
It’s time to change perceptions of modern methods of construction, says Brian Ham, Executive Director of Development at Home Group, that is working with several partners to test, monitor and compare a range of offsite methods as part of a live research project in Gateshead. In the last 20-30 years, technology, cars and phones have all advanced dramatically. But houses still look pretty much the same and are still built in pretty much the same way. But if we keep doing things in exactly the same way I’m doubtful that we’ll meet the government’s target of building 300,000 homes – which many people believe is already an underestimate in terms of what we need to tackle the housing crisis.

Is Cross Laminated Timber Coming of Age?
The world is waking up to the speed, quality and environmental benefits of cross-laminated timber, but what are the limitations and is it really an alternative to concrete or steel?

But it wasn’t until around five years ago that engineered timber really started to take hold and, thanks in part to falling prices, it has now become a vital component in shaping our cities.
