OSCC Extends Software Assessment Survey Deadline
The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) is still looking for input from architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals and manufacturers regarding their software use for off-site construction projects. Earlier this summer, the Council issued a survey to assess the role of software in delivering off-site constructed projects. To ensure a representative sample of industry professionals responds, the OSCC has extended the deadline to Friday, October 9 at 5:00 pm.
In a previous OSCC survey, many AEC professionals indicated utilizing off-site fabricated components to some degree over the past year, and expect to utilize off-site construction more often or the same amount in the year ahead. The purpose of the follow-up software survey is to gain an understanding of the kinds of software tools industry participants are currently using for their off-site projects.
The software survey, consisting of seven questions (multiple choice and fill-in-the blank), should take less than ten minutes to complete. OSCC will compile responses into a report, which will be distributed to the industry at a later date and be used to inform development of an Off-Site Construction Implementation Guide.
National Institute of Building Sciences brings together labor and consumer interests, government representatives, regulatory agencies, and members of the building industry to identify and resolve problems and potential problems around the construction of housing and commercial buildings. NIBS is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization. It was established by Congress in 1974. For more information, visit nibs.org or follow @bldgsciences on Twitter and Facebook.
