The Barratt Innovation Challenge!

What is the Barratt Innovation Challenge?
To face the challenges in housebuilding, Barratt Developments is starting to embrace new and innovative methods of onsite and offsite construction. We are working with our supply chain to deliver efficiencies that can assist with continually improving quality, raise environmental standards, and further improve the safety of our people. Engaging with our supply chain early will also help to make us less dependent on materials and skills that are in short supply.
We are now looking to expand our engagement to any supplier who feels they can offer a product or process to help achieve our ambition and deliver much needed homes.
A 'Sandpit' is a relatively new approach to supplier engagement, and one we applied successfully in our AIMC4 Project. Our 'Barratt Innovation Challenge' Sandpit aims to provide a dynamic process that allows direct dialogue between suppliers and our business through interactive workshops. These workshops will provide you with an opportunity to understand our business drivers and interact with each other to showcase your capabilities in a challenging and creative hands-on environment.
Our aim for this day is to pool ideas for technology and process innovations that drive cost, quality and speed benefits whilst looking to use diverse skill sets.
