Bringing together the best of the best businesses and leaders at the forefront of offsite construction, the 2023 Offsite Awards shines a light on the ideas, innovations and products driving offsite and MMC technology further than ever before.

A year of progress and change, 2023 has seen offsite construction make impressive leaps forward in technology, engineering and design. With more focus on better performance, streamlined manufacturing and the delivery of safer, greener structures, offsite is helping to advance a better, more sustainable UK construction landscape.

Celebrating the significant achievements of the industry over the past twelve months, the Offsite Awards – held at the Coventry Building Society Arena on 19 September – showcased the people and businesses driving change and championing the benefits of offsite to the construction community.

Every year, the awards give an incredible insight into the breadth and complexity of offsite projects across the built environment. The 2023 awards received over 200 entrants across 23 categories, with many outstanding examples of pioneering projects, innovative products and inspirational people, the judging panel had a tough job selecting the winners from a wealth of worthy finalists.

Following a drinks reception, the awards ceremony – hosted by comedian and TV presenter Lucy Porter- offered the perfect opportunity for the finalists to network and discover more about the inspiring entries.

It was a great night for HLM Architects, B&K Structures, Engenuiti and Stora Enso, who took home the coveted ‘Winner of Winners’ award for their project, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland.

The BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ NMIS headquarters is a unique, iconic flagship facility which places Scotland firmly at the front of advanced manufacturing innovation. Its design and delivery reflects this through the creative use of MMC for greater efficiency through repetitive elements, minimised material use and wastage, and opportunity for future expansion. The project is an example of pushing the boundaries of offsite construction to achieve unique, world-class facilities.

The judges said:

“This project is a standout, as befitting its use. The flexible design, range of MMC solutions deployed and recognition of its educational use are truly extraordinary. That this has been achieved while also delivering high quality, statement architecture is a testament to the skills and experience of these worthy winners.”

Congratulations to all the 2023 winners!
