Abstract

The problem of housing delivery is of great concern in many countries of the world. This problem is especially prominent developing countries and Nigeria is not an exception. In Nigeria, this challenge has been magnified as a result of a myriad of issues, not least, a high population growth rate, shortage of necessary skills, disintegrated supply chain etc. Seminal literature has evidenced that offsite manufacturing (OSM) can help improve housing delivery efforts both in terms of quantity and quality. The aim of this research was to investigate the current housing delivery problems in Nigeria in order to evaluate the feasibility of adopting OSM within this market.
