About the Off-site Construction Research Centre

The Off-site Construction Research Centre at the University of New Brunswick seeks to transform the construction industry by optimizing alternate solutions to conventional, ‘stick-built,’ on-site construction.

The OCRC will transform partner companies, grow the supply chain in the province and make New Brunswick a hub for off-site construction by developing innovative solutions to construction industry problems. Opportunities to participate range from supporting world-class researchers to contracting research to solve specific problems.
