4 The importance of pre-assembly ALAN CRANEChairmanRethinking Construction
5 Why Rethink Construction ? £70 billion turnover - 10% of GDPEmploys 1.7 millionLow profitabilityLow levels of investmentHigh client dissatisfactionSubstantial under-achievement
6 ‘Rethinking Construction’ The Report:- Commissioned by the GovernmentThe Scope:- For improving the quality and efficiency of UK constructionThe Task Force:- Led by Sir John Egan included only people from other industries
7 ‘Rethinking Construction’ Based its recommendations on tried and tested methods from other industriesSet out a model for change and improvement
8 ‘Rethinking Construction’ – a summary!

9 Rethinking Construction objectives Promote innovation for Performance ImprovementIn Business ProcessIn ProcurementIn People – through RespectIn the Product & ComponentsPROVE the CASE & CHANGE THE CULTURE!
10 PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT Value, not Cost-“It is not cheaper things that we want to possess but expensive things that cost a lot less”Measurement –If you do not know where you are, how will you get where you want to be?
11 PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT THE TARGETSAn Efficient & Effective IndustryPredictable- TimeCostQualityHealth, Safety and Respect for PeopleALL PROVIDED BY STANDARDISATION & PRE-ASSEMBLY
12 STANDARDISATION IS NOT IS A Panacea for industry problems A restraint on DesignISThe use of Tried, Tested and ProvenThe right fit & Fit First TimeAn opportunity for customisation & flair- without the risk!
13 PRE-ASSEMBLYIS, CAN BEMODULARVOLUMETRICNON-VOLUMETRIC (Precast, frames etc)COMPONENT MANUFACTURE & SUB-ASSEMBLYOff site Construction in controlled conditions for On site installation- without the risks!
14 RETHINKING CONSTRUCTION has the evidence DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS in the last 3 years…Represent 3% of industry outputHave killed ZERO people- rather than 8Have reportable accidents 70% lower than official industry rate – and 15% of real rateYET
15 RETHINKING CONSTRUCTION has proven performance 30% better on Time and Cost predictability32% better on Quality29% higher productivity33% higher Client satisfactionAnd 35% higher profitability
16 COINCIDENCE?THATProjects efficiently managed by committed, well educated & trained challenging people working together achieve better business performanceBetter business performance provides a happier, healthier, safer and more satisfying workplace
17 RETHINKING CONSTRUCTION has proven performance Based on DemonstrationBased on collaborative, clustering integrated teams attempting innovationBut it needs to become the normSimple tools for Simple PeopleAvailable Now- IMMPREST
18 Measuring benefit helps to overcome barriers. What is IMMPREST?Interactive Model for Measurement of PRE-assembly and STandardisation benefit in construction.Measuring benefit helps to overcome barriers.
19 IMMPREST overview Comprises 3 “tools”: Toolkit A is information & backgroundToolkit B operates at project strategy level focusing on the project driversToolkit C provides detailed elemental evaluation of benefit
20 Benefits classified as: CostTimeQualityIssues that are relatively well understoodHealth and SafetySustainabilityBenefits from site activitiesSofter issues, often overlooked in evaluations.
21 IMMPREST outputsA structured investigation of pertinent aspects of a project – definition of project driversWhat if..? simulations allowing comparison of alternatives.Risks are highlighted as are benefits along with what to do or not doThe route taken to reach a decision is auditablePrinted reports are available at every stage
22 Who can use IMMPREST?Its main use is for evaluating design options principally by cost consultantsManufacturers will find it useful for marketingProject managers/contractors can use the outputs to assist risk management and site constraintsPlanners can use outputs to identify critical activities
23 Other usesThe need to define project drivers encourages a team approach to the project strategyThe more the toolkit is used, the greater the potential to develop a comprehensive data base.The structured framework requires a more considered approach to knowledge management
24 IMMPREST does not give you THE answer (not appropriate or desirable for software to do this) It helps the team develop the best answer
25 Clients, industry and government working together to improve UK construction
26 GenerallyIMMPREST builds on earlier work and links closely to related researchThis forms an integrated effort to achieve real uptake of pre-assembly
