Description

The Transforming Construction Taskforce in Platform Design and Mass Customisation was launched in July 2019 at the University of Huddersfield along with leading research teams and public-private sector organisations.

The Taskforce is a collaborative platform of researchers and the industry, and acts as an inspiration for the further development of innovative activities in construction, in particular for the platform design and mass customisation.

The Taskforce is a collaborative platform of researchers and the industry, and its members represent construction, manufacturing, research, energy and digital sectors. It acts as an inspiration for the further development of innovative activities in construction to collaboratively transform the construction industry and inform policy makers.

The members of the Taskforce will be invited for a series of workshops, which are forums for networking, presenting exemplar best practices and learning from mistakes in a safe and collaborative environment. Also, the members will be involved in industry-research bids and will benefit from findings of projects to champion the industry in the application of transformative methods of construction.

The Taskforce initially concentrates on how the industry can manufacture buildings and optimise the lifecycle performance of buildings through the platform approach and mass customisation and moves towards becoming a major player in developing offsite solutions to tackle the challenges that the industry faces.
