We are excited to share that The DfMA toolkit COLAB has won the Digital Construction and the Winner of Winners Award in this year's 2022 Offsite Awards.
COLAB is an interdisciplinary consortium of forward-thinking organisations at the cutting edge of innovation in the construction industry. Led by L&Q, alongside partners including us, Virtual Viewing and Hawkins\Brown, the team members are leaders in DfMA, offsite and digital transformation. This collaboration aims to move away from traditional project-specific solutions to building homes and towards a portfolio and product-based approach – adopting a manufacturing mentality.
With Climate Change being the most urgent issue of our time, the Colab DLMA toolkit will empower its users by giving them the correct data, including carbon metrics of offsite products. In addition, the tool will be a great tool to ensure time, material and human resources are used responsibly right from the design stage. HTA has extensive knowledge in DfMA and MMC, having worked on some of the most significant MMC-led projects in the world. Having completed several volumetric modular buildings in London, our interdisciplinary collaborative approach and DfMA expertise are vital in advancing innovation in UK construction.
Bringing together these different elements and the diverse range of skills that the three practices offer will break down some of the barriers in the industry and could prove to be a game-changer for the sector.
Congrats to everyone involved.
