Why Funding for Offsite Construction is Difficult

I'll outline five reasons contributing to the difficulties being experienced, but before doing so, I should acknowledge that this view of the difficulty in obtaining funding for offsite construction is not founded on hard evidence. Instead, it arises from conversations with offsite manufacturers, enquiries to PrefabAUS, and discussions at industry conferences.
