Next generation construction method launched by Mace



Construction productivity could be boosted sixfold thanks to an innovative new method for constructing high-rise buildings using digital technology and offsite manufacturing. The new method – High Rise Solutions (HRS) - is the product of Mace, the global consultancy and construction firm.

Revealed at a launch event held at Get Living’s N06 East Village in Stratford today, the system – which is an evolution of the thinking behind Mace’s award winning ‘Jump Factory’, used to deliver Get Living’s most recently completed project at Victory Plaza, East Village – combines the latest advances in digital technology with a new offsite manufacturing approach to construct buildings faster, safer and to a consistently higher quality.

According to Mace, the new system is able to reduce design and construction processes by 25%, vehicle movements by 40% and waste by 70%. As a result, clients will be able to reduce their finance cost, homes can be delivered quicker and disruption to local communities minimised. Using parametric modelling tools and artificial intelligence, the HRS system is able to draw from a catalogue of components to design and manufacture the structure and façade sub-assemblies of buildings offsite.

The launch of the new HRS system coincides with the launch of a new business unit, Mace Tech, that will manage the deployment and delivery of advanced off-site sub-assembly construction methods harnessing the latest technologies.

Commenting on the new system and business unit, Mace’s Chief Executive Mark Reynolds, said:

“The launch of Mace Tech marks an important milestone, not only for Mace but for the industry; unless we radically rethink how we build, we will never be able to deliver the housing and infrastructure that is desperately needed across the UK while reducing our carbon footprint.”

“Availability of smart data is essential to radically change our industry. Mace Tech will allow us to harness the latest digital technologies and offsite construction methods to create better buildings. HRS is already helping to deliver housing faster with less waste and reduce carbon emissions. I look forward to working closely with the team to roll it out across our business.”
