PCE Ltd is pleased to be part of a seven strong collaborative team of integrators unveiled by the Construction Innovation Hub to take forward its flagship Platform Design programme to support the UK Government’s ambition to drive innovation and build industrial capability and capacity in businesses throughout the UK.
The aim is to deliver more sustainable buildings in the near future by using pre-defined offsite engineered ‘kit of parts’ solutions which are proven to demonstrate greater whole-life value, lower carbon and energy use, better safety and quality and will improve the overall performance of buildings. The other six members are Skanska, BAM, MID Group, Kier/Vinci, Mace and Mott MacDonald.
Speaking at Futurebuild2020, Construction Innovation Hub Programme Director, Keith Waller, said:
"Our flagship Platform Design programme is a game-changer for construction. "With the right blend of expertise and collaboration across Government and industry, we could see a critical mass of new built projects like schools and hospitals constructed using the Platform approach in as little as ten years, driving improved productivity and performance for the sector and better outcomes for the environment and society.
"The innovative businesses joining us on our journey are the vanguard of transformative change, not just in terms of how we create buildings, but in how those buildings impact on our lives and the environment."
PCE’s Managing Director, Mr Nickie Brown commented:
"Being part of this group is very important to us and has come about by the great teamwork and innovation that PCE has developed both internally and with its clients to improve how buildings are constructed. "We look forward to developing our belief, systems and benefits in an offsite engineered HybriDfMA ‘kit of parts’ future for the industry with the significant gains that such can deliver to all associated with the construction industry and very importantly society in general."
