Office of Projects Victoria - Offsite Construction Guide
The Offsite Construction Guide aims to give government project teams practical instruction on how to evaluate, procure and deliver projects using modern construction methods. Through reading this Guide, government project teams should gain an appreciation and an understanding for the potential for Offsite Construction in public projects.
