Skanska’s journey towards industrialisation
Discover Skanska’s approach towards industrialising construction from basic component standardisation to full scale automation. Explore how we focus on waste reduction within the construction process and improve productivity by bridging the gap between construction and manufacturing. Case studies will bring to life our ‘flying factories’ concept applied to construction projects yielding significant benefits (cost, quality and programme), to ‘Boklok’ (offsite modular housing), along with automation and robotics in the built environment. Key business change requirements for any company that wants to drive a more industrialised approach will also be outlined, before ending with Skanska’s future direction of travel and the art of the possible.
Three key learning points:
1. How construction can reduce waste while also improving productivity
2. Understanding the levels of opportunity within the industrialisation concept
3. Updating construction sector processes to enable industrialisation to become business as usual.
