ABOUT THE OA

Driving a new era of development, growth, and productivity to enable the delivery of high quality precision engineered homes for the future

“LED BY OUR MEMBERS

FOR OUR MEMBERS”

Since our inception we have been instrumental in raising funds, influencing policy and bringing about true collaboration.

Formed in 2019 in a bid to bring the sector together. We tried and tested the need for the Alliance and in July 2020 registered the company as a CIC organisation with a large membership body.

Today, we work to unite the industry by working towards…

OUR AIMS & OBJECTVES

THE BIG 5

1. PROMOTE

To promote best practice, share innovation and insight and work together to help create better quality housing for the UK in the volumes needed.

2. SHARE

High quality industry and environmental standards, shared terminology, and standardised measurements.

3. INTER-INDUSTRY

To develop an inter-industry ‘underwriting scheme’ allowing customer orders to be transferred from one manufacturer to another if necessary, and therefore giving customers of the sector greater security that their orders will be delivered.

4. ONE VOICE

To co-ordinate and present the views of the Offsite Alliance to government (national and local) the construction sector, planners, mortgage providers, property lenders, developers and architects.

The Alliance aims to be the direct voice of the sector. From the actual makers and suppliers to the market.

5. STANDARDISED

To develop a standardised range of licence-free ‘open source’ low-cost residential unit designs that can be supplied by multiple operators in the offsite sector.

Thus, creating the scale of supply needed for high volume customers (HA’s etc)

WHY WE DO THIS

Borne out of pure frustration that the construction sector remains slow to respond and tackle the acute chronic housing shortfall coupled with the lack of support and understanding of manufactured construction.

Our passion lies in delivering the critical need for affordable, sustainable homes of the future.

HOW WE DO THIS

The Offsite Alliance works alongside leading organisations, industry bodies, the government, local authorities, housing associations and most importantly its members to increase the uptake and delivery of Offsite technologies across the residential sector.
