Off-Site Construction Council

Off-site construction is the planning, design, fabrication, and assembly of building elements at a location other than their final installed location to support the rapid and efficient construction of a permanent structure. Off-site construction is characterized by an integrated planning and supply chain optimization strategy.

In 2013, the National Institute of Building Sciences established the Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) to serve as a research, education and outreach center for relevant and current information on off-site design and construction for commercial, institutional, and multifamily facilities.
