New Seismic Demonstrator Project at BRE
Speaker: Richard Crosby, Director, Blacc
Based on a standardised steel frame and set of components, Seismic offers a flexible, highly configurable system suitable for a range of building types. With the UK government pushing for platform-based construction solutions, this new demonstrator building offers a glimpse of the future.
Designed in line with the government’s Construction 2025 targets, it exceeds them in every way, delivering a building that is 75% faster to complete, 70% lower in carbon impact and 47% better value than traditional construction.
One of the unique aspects of the project is the combination of three manufacturers working independently on the same building.
Seismic was developed to help drive a shift towards MMC in the industry. It is faster at every stage, from design through to manufacturing, assembly and fitout, and offers better quality and value, alongside a dramatically lower carbon impact.
HBCEC Members will get the opportunity to visit this building at our Awards Event at BRE Watford on Thurs 26th May so put the date in your diary.
