#21 Regulatory Reform for Industrialised Building

The construction industry is moving towards more industrialised practices, including offsite manufacturing of building components. However, current regulatory practices are not well suited to accommodate these industrialised practices. This project aims to build on previous work and propose reform to recognise industrialised building practices. It seeks to address two main questions: how to improve current regulations to accommodate various industrialised practices and how to “future proof” the reform for upcoming innovations. This will be done by reviewing current regulations, proposing standardised certification processes, considering new technologies and ensuring the proposed reform remains relevant in the face of future changes.
