HKA Director David Foxley is proud to speak at the 10th Annual Modular & Prefabrication Construction Conference. David’s topic is “Raising Construction Productivity via the use of Modern Methods of Construction”.

The housing crisis in Asia has been widely acknowledged: home-building rates are just a quarter of the millions of units and houses required annually and are insufficient to meet accumulated needs. The failure to meet these supply levels is partly explained by the challenges that the industry is facing, such as low productivity, labour shortages, lack of collaboration and failure to embrace new technologies. Modern methods of construction (MMC), manufacturing methods that harness digital techniques, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and offsite manufacturing have all been widely promoted as solutions to industry challenges, with a particular emphasis on the potential of offsite manufacturing for residential housing.

Construction in general, and housebuilding in particular, will play a vital role in Asia’s post-COVID recovery. More can be done within the construction and housebuilding sector to develop a vision of how the uptake of modular methods, offsite manufacturing and MMC will be part of this recovery. It could also help to tackle regional inequalities and address the ’levelling-up agenda’. This will require the collection of data on where components are both manufactured and used in order that the geographies of production can be used to inform decision-making about sustainable and responsible procurement.

However, as we have seen there have been issues in delays in the global supply chain, raw materials and increasing shortages in skilled manpower have accelerated the move towards modular, precast and prefabrication. With opportunities coming into the hot markets such as data centres, logistics, residential and life sciences the catalyst has been set for companies now to embrace the modular, precast and prefabrication in Asia.

The Annual Modular & Prefabrication Construction Trueventus is aimed to create a premier destination for professionals working across the built environment to gain
insights and experience first-hand on the latest innovations and opportunities in modern methods of construction to streamline workflows, improve productivity, expand the scope of projects, expand access to data, enhance collaboration and generate stronger profit margins.
