Summary
This project evaluates off-site solid timber production processes in the international solid timber industry. The Solid Timber Construction (STC) projects documented herein provide a test bed to evaluate project performance metrics attributed to off-site construction. This study also evaluates the contingent qualitative environmental, organizational and technological contextual factors related to STC. The study therefore: Investigates and documents STC projects to identify successful performance metric parameters: economics, schedule, scope, quality, risk, and worker safety. Compares this data to traditional site built construction to determine the estimated added value or negative impact of STC. Identifies qualitative contextual parameters including environment, organization and technology for successfully developing STC methods; Creates a model for data gathering for STC stakeholders to report their own performance parameters and thereby create a robust database of off-site projects in the future. Synthesizes holistic best processes and practices guide for the industry looking to engage in STC work.
