As the first specialist event of its kind, OFFSITE EXPO has played an instrumental part in driving transformational change in the built environment. Now in its fifth year, the construction industry is not only embracing factory-based build methods, but the government is mandating its use in public sector projects.
Speeding up the construction process, ushering in new levels of quality control, improving building energy efficiency and providing much more consistency between the design and the end product –are just some of the advantages routinely associated with offsite construction.
Now established as the most technically advanced event in the construction calendar, OFFSITE EXPO brings together the sector’s high-hitters in one easy to reach central UK location.
Taking place at the Coventry Building Society Arena, on 17 and 18 September 2024 – get ready for ‘information overload’ with two days packed full of the latest technical know-how, ground-breaking innovations and digital engineering prowess from across the offsite sector.
“It’s been a fantastic day so far; I’m meeting passionate people who are a part of the agenda. It’s been a varied and engaging set of speakers, I enjoyed the women in construction seminar, there are some real innovators and collaborators in the room. It’s great for meeting people in the sector who are looking to make changes, reach out and grow their network.”

Acclaimed multi-award winning innovator VOLUMETRIC™ – are unveiling their latest technology with a full size modular apartment taking centre stage at Offsite Expo. Developed to meet the demand for high-quality sustainable homes that can be delivered on super-fast building programmes, the team will launch the new volumetric modular solution developed specifically for mid-rise apartments and low-rise homes. Bespoke designs and fitouts meet the brief and budgets of high-end apartments, affordable housing and the build-to-rent sector. Exploiting in-house skills and an innovative approach to research and development, the offsite experts at VOLUMETRIC™ worked in close collaboration with supply-chain partners to design the energy-efficient, low-carbon homes which surpass space and performance standards. The light steel frame structural technology ensures that these volumetric modular housing solutions do not involve any hot-rolled steel components – minimising embodied carbon.
