A significant majority of responding members do plan to increase the practice…
More than 70% of survey respondents indicated planning to increase use of offsite construction practices, as part of their three year strategies, indicating that for those companies that are engaged in offsite construction in their businesses, the majority are planning to increase the practice.
…but application still focused on three primary product types.
Another apparent reason for the more limited engagement around modularization and offsite construction stems from the apparent indications that modularization and fabrication techniques are still heavily concentrated in the multi-family, hospitality, and healthcare markets, and while those are big markets, only certain builders are heavily focused on those markets. Other contractors in other markets may, therefore, not see the applicability of modular techniques. We expect to gather more data and survey results in the coming months, and while our data set is limited at the moment, it nonetheless points to an area of the ecosystem that continues to see growth, but on a much more limited basis than what we would expect to see in areas such as project management, accounting, and even certain areas of job site IoT.
