Cover text saying Platform II enhancing construction efficiency with productivity, speed and sustainability

Explore how a blend of simple, optimisable components can lead to endless configuration possibilities, a diverse supply chain, and the potential for significant automation.

Our latest video from Head of Global Systems, Jaimie Johnston MBE,  delves into the groundbreaking concepts from our newest book, 'Platforms in Practice.' This isn't just theory; it's the future of building, made real. Discover how Platform II is revolutionising the construction of hospitals, offices, and schools.

With a focus on sustainability, efficiency, and innovation, Platform II is redefining the way buildings are created, aligning with government recommendations and taking giant leaps in productivity and carbon reduction.

From the origins of platform construction to the development of The Forge, the world's first building crafted using P-DfMA, our video takes you on a fascinating journey through industrialised construction techniques. Platform II proves that endless possibilities can arise from a single kit of parts.

A study, led by Dr Danny Murguia, Research Associate at the Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction and Technology of the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, shows fantastic potential: doubling programme productivity, slashing embodied carbon by 20%, and reducing construction time by 40%.

Watch our video to see how Platform II is not just a concept, but a reality, paving the way for a more efficient, sustainable, and adaptable future in construction.
