Seismic is a physical cross-sector construction platform system that facilitates the design, procurement, manufacture and construction / assembly of buildings using standardised and interoperable components and assemblies, the requirements for which are part of a component catalogue.
Seismic enables contracting authorities to collaborate and find opportunities that enable interoperability of components across different sectors.
In line with government policy and guidance, procurement and frameworks are now supporting this approach, and the Seismic platform facilitates the development of a market and supply chain that can develop and deliver buildings based on our approach, manufacture and supply components, whilst enabling the market to innovate, improve, and develop these over time.
Seismic was developed to help drive a shift towards Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) within the construction industry. Some benefits of the platform include:LEARN MORE
Improved efficiency naturally feeds into cost reduction. But there is more to value than cost, and Seismic offers a range of benefits.
Seismic utilises a platform-based approach with consistent components, so it can be easily disassembled and reused.
In sustainability terms, Seismic offers significant reductions in both operational and embodied carbon.
Because Seismic utilises a platform-based approach with consistent components, it can be easily disassembled and reused. This approach is referred to within Lifecycle Assessments (LCAs) as Module D.
