The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) is administering this survey to assess the role of software in delivering off-site constructed projects.

"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. Such building elements may be prefabricated at a different location and transported to the site or prefabricated on the construction site and then transported to their final location. Off-site construction is characterized by an integrated planning and supply chain optimization strategy.

The OSCC is interested in understanding which software tools industry participants are currently using to achieve this optimization strategy. Your answers are anonymous and your responses, which will be compiled into a report, will be included in the aggregate only. (Note: there is an option to leave contact information at the end of the questions to allow follow-up, but this is voluntary.) Thank you for your participation in the survey!

Question Title

* 1. In the past 12 months, which of the following off-site elements have you incorporated into one or more of your projects? (Check all that apply.)

Question Title

* 2. In the past 12 months, what software applications have you used on off-site construction project(s), for the following project delivery phases?

(When listing software applications, separate each software name by a comma, i.e. Autodesk Revit Architecture, Graphisoft ArchiCAD)

For a listing of sample software applications copy and paste this URL into a separate browser window: http://www.nibs.org/resource/resmgr/OSCC/OSCC_Software_list.pdf.

Question Title

* 3. How often have you used the previously named software application(s) for off-site construction projects? (List the software apps by name in the appropriate frequency text box.)

Question Title

* 4. How effective are the software application(s) that you are using for implementing off-site construction projects? (List software apps by name.)

Question Title

* 5. What are the primary services your company offers? (Check all that apply.)

Question Title

* 6. In what state is your company office located?

Question Title

* 7. If you would like to receive follow-up information regarding the results of this survey and other related Off-Site Construction Council activities, please provide your name and email address in the box below. (This is completely voluntary and will not be included in the report.)

The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) will be conducting periodic surveys to support the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry in implementing off-site construction. The OSCC is open to professionals from across the building industry. We invite you to join the OSCC to participate in this discussion.
