British Offsite has officially launched to the open market, offering the most technologically advanced light gauge steel panel system in the marketplace.
Founded with a £35million investment from Weston Group, the manufacturing and construction company specialises in the design and production of superstructure and interior fit modular construction solutions which can be tailored to a developer’s needs.
The company will have a spectacular exhibition stand at theOffsite Expoat the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, 21-22nd September 2021 to meet customers and openly showcase their product range for the first time.
British Offsiteis focused on making the transition to offsite construction a natural evolution for developers, whilst saving clients time, space and resources on site. The system is flexible and can be used for hybrid MMC elements in houses, mid-rise and high-rise sites, including those in high-density urban areas.
The UNI System range includes light gauge panels, walls, roofs and floors. The system is a specially developed hybrid MMC that is highly flexible and allows rapid integration into traditional building design. In addition, British Offsite also manufactures internal fit-out modules, under their BOS Fitout brand, which includes bathroom components, kitchen and bedroom products, designed to be easily integrated into existing projects, with full quality control testing before elements reach the site.
The innovative hybrid MMC approach reduces the time between a site’s ground-breaking and first handovers by up to 20%. One fully dressed UNI Panel can be produced every 15 minutes, and the panels for one entire apartment can be produced every 60 minutes.
The British Offsite factories have the capacity for up to 150,000 linear metres of UNI System products per year and will run for 20 hours per day, producing panels with windows, doors, insulation, vents, fire stopping and external cladding in place, manufactured exactly to a developer’s needs.
Shaun Weston, Managing Director of British Offsite says: “British Offsite has been launched to radically reduce the risk and delays in construction, an unrivalled delivery capacity helping to deliver occupiable homes faster. Our MMC products are designed to be easily integrated into existing projects, helping to streamline traditional residential construction. Our state-of-the-art facilities will include the largest steel panel factory in the UK, with the most advanced light-gauge steel assembly line in Europe, meaning we can deliver precise products more quickly for our customers.”
“British Offsite is proud to be part of the new wave of high tech British manufacturing, bringing very significant new capabilities to the UK construction industry. We have carefully assembled our own team, bringing together a strong combination of blended experience from the construction, automotive, general manufacturing, and engineering industries, to put ourselves at the very forefront of this fast-moving arena.”
“The skills shortage in the construction industry was widely reported before Brexit, and now we’re in a post-Brexit environment where the pandemic has further reduced access to skills. With the work of up to five trades consolidated into our panels, our customers are more protected from the skills shortage and construction can continue unhindered.”
British Offsite can work on projects of all sizes and types, from 10 plots to over 1,000. The product range is attractively priced and has been developed with one of the most competitive builders in the industry. Internals pricing starts at £1,500 for bathrooms to be installed, from £500 for wardrobes installed and £1,200 for quartz kitchen worktops installed. All other products and service pricing is subject to specification and project-specific details.
For customers looking to benefit from British Offsite’s modern hybrid approach, they can contact their business development team who will consult on project feasibility and cost. Customers can have their projects converted to a UNI System construction method in as little as 120 days from order.
