Laing O’Rourke Appointed as Government’s Strategic Supplier

The Cabinet Office of the UK government confirmed the appointment of Laing O’Rourke as its strategic supplier in December 2020. The selection of Laing follows the government’s plans to augment investments in vital infrastructures, including the School Rebuilding Program, the construction of 40 new hospitals by 2030, and the building of nuclear facilities and rail projects. With a focus on attaining infrastructural goals using modern construction methods, such as modular solutions, the UK government aims at leveraging Laing’s proven capability of delivering the promised output in a timely manner. The Grange University Hospital in South Wales, for instance, was completed by Laing using modern building methods four months ahead of schedule.

Logistical Challenges of Modular Constructions to Inhibit Market Growth

While the introduction of modular construction for healthcare has immensely benefited the medical sector, the logistical challenges associated with the delivery of these structures are expected to thwart the growth trajectory of this market. For example, the modules need to be carefully packaged, loaded, and transported to the concerned site from an off-site location, which may be far away. Moreover, since the logistics involved in the delivery of these structures are complex, the managers need to envisage the materials and design required at the beginning of the project itself, complicating the process even further. In addition, the preparations entailing the supply of materials and the final product to the concerned destination end up pushing up the initial manufacturing and transportation costs, even though the overall cost-savings in the long-run are substantial. The complex logistics and packaging processes surrounding the modular construction for healthcare domain are foreseen to limit its adoption in the healthcare sector.
