Enabling software for low carbon modular construction
Off-site manufacturing techniques have the potential to deliver low carbon and efficient homes.
At present, homes constructed using off-site methods are still designed and procured using traditional methods. This hinders uptake of off-site methods and leaves carbon reduction and efficiency gains on the table.
There is potential for software to add value to the home design and construction market, leading to reduced waste, lower embodied carbon and more efficient homes.
This enabling software could be applied to other construction applications, but the high demand for new homes and simplicity of design make this an interesting starter market.
