The team here at Arkilab have previously worked in the Offsite sector, and have become specialists in the field, designing for modern methods of construction (MMC), and delivering inspirational design solutions with commercial strategy and awareness embedded in the team in equal measure.
We have seven years of experience in the offsite sector, and more recently have followed good practice in the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) to provide cost and programme driven solutions with standardisation at the forefront of our thinking and underpinning our core aims.
- minimised component parts
- components create clusters for efficient offsite production
- maximised repeatable elements.
The team have previously worked closely with one of the country’s leading offsite manufacturers, and personally responsible for the design and detailing of several school projects ranging in value from £1million to £20million, from Primary and Secondary Schools to Further Education Colleges, delivering over £150m of Offsite / MMC projects as part of a wider team.
Using Offsite Panelised and Volumetric components we have detailed knowledge of the design and construction process from Sub Assembly (collaborating with our consultants for repeatable M&E and FFE components), Main Assembly, through to delivery and installation on site. The projects are designed from inception to maximise the works that can be completed offsite whilst considering transportation requirements at the outset, to ease transfer to a site once the groundworks have been completed.
