Logistics case study: Off site manufacturing, RSME Minley
This case study describes how off site manufacturing techniques can reduce the number of vehicles going to site and help improve waste minimisation and management in the construction industry.
Caledonian Building Systems, based near Newark, Nottinghamshire is a construction contractor whose roots lie firmly in the off site manufacturing sector. Caledonian Building Systems won a £42 million contract with Holdfast, to construct eight new accommodation blocks for the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) on three different training sites.
The modular approach allows a considerably shorter project time-frame, a high quality of construction, greater certainty of project costs and significantly reduces the number of deliveries entering the construction site.
This case study focuses on the delivery of modules to the RSME Minley, located at Gibraltar Barracks in Surrey and describes how the supply chain has helped improve waste minimisation and management.
