Construction Innovation Hub

Construction Innovation Hub (CIH)

Platform Design Programme (PDP)

The Construction Innovation Hub’s vision is a world where our built environment improves quality of life, delivers greater social value, reduces environmental impact and is delivered by a world-leading, innovative and sustainable industry.

Working as a consultant on the flagship Platform Design Programme, David is helping to develop a Platform Rulebook as a new approach to building using a platform construction approach to Design for Manufacture and Assembly (P-DfMA).

He is also leading the assurance and gateways workstream developing a route to compliance including the implementation of Construction Quality Planning (CQP) for the manufacturing phase of the programme.



Quintain are the award-winning development and asset management team behind Wembley Park, one of London’s most exciting new neighbourhoods. They are also the third largest residential developer in Ireland, with 9,000 homes in the pipeline across 460 acres of prime development land. During their 28-year history they have transformed assets into places where people want to live, companies want to grow and neighbourhoods can come alive.

Working as a consultant, David provided advice on expanding the use of modern methods of construction (MMC) to improve productivity, reduce embodied carbon and minimise the impact of construction on the local environment.

This included a study for a near-site field factory to pre-manufacture and assemble components, testing the viability of partition cassettes, elements of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), light gauge steel framing (LGSF) infill panels, and prefabricated balconies.

In addition, he wrote a proposal to have one combined office and welfare facility for the customer, consultants, principal contractors and supply chain for the next phase of development at Wembley for cost, logistical and environmental impact rationalisation.
