About Us

This project investigated the understanding of the barriers and drivers effecting up-take of panelised and off-site manufactured structural timber building systems. The project sought to improve the capacity for supply chain support in the commercial construction market and those who manufacture timber elements within it.  Panelised prefabricated timber construction offers a fast and productive site installation process. Cranage provides the lead resource, as it dictates the speed of installation – therefore optimising crane time is central to optimising productivity. 

As a subset of gross crane time, the study purposely focused on net crane time as the basis for measuring productivity, being the time dedicated to crane cycles involved directly in installing prefabricated timber panels.
