Offsite Manufactured Buildings have been utilised by the Ministry since the 1950s, primarily for temporary and relocatable teaching spaces. In more recent times, Offsite Manufacturing (OSM) is becoming more prevalent within the construction industry globally.

OSM itself can range from the delivery of complete, weathertight, spaces to site (volumetric supply) to the provision of building components for on-site assembly such as wall panels and wiring looms. Newer technologies are also capable of 3D printing structures. This gives rise to the terms Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), giving emphasis to the utilisation of a range of techniques where part or all a structure are produced at facilities then transported to site for assembly.

The Ministry’s current Offsite Manufactured Building Program involves the delivery of prefabricated modular buildings of temporary and permanent nature. In the future, the OSM category will have greater alignment with the Ministry’s overall capital works program, including greater utilisation for the provision of permanent school spaces.

As the longer-term vision for the utilisation of offsite manufacturing exceeds the current expectation, it is critical to ensure that the Ministry has access to the right supply chain via a multi-stage market engagement. This will identify suppliers with appropriate capacity, capability and scalability that can positively impact the Education sector. Furthermore, it will re-establish baseline for quality, cost and value measures that can be used to benchmark against historical OMB trends as well as traditional construction approaches.
The current offering has been operating since 2015.

The services to be provided by the future panel are as follows:
• Designing, construction, installation and/or relocation of buildings
• Supply and lease of buildings
• Refurbishment and relocation of buildings
• Provision of prefabricated building components

As a minimum, suppliers should be able to provide a service to Design, Construct, Install and/or relocate buildings across one or multiple regions (North, Central, South). This is considered a ‘turnkey’ solution for the delivery of teaching spaces, as shown in the below diagram. The remaining services are preferred, though will not be considered mandatory service offerings.
